Scandi Chic: minimal, calming and a pared down palette. Beautiful. However, give me a decadent, rowdy, loud statement wall and I am putty in your hands.

Fornasetti – the “monkey” wallpaper

My favourite has to be Fornasetti, whose designs I adore. Intricate, bold, off-kilter, whimsical – monkeys perching on cocoa leaves, hot air balloons, puffer fish (Acquario – I LOVE this one but where to put it?) Cheap? Not the cheapest. Worth it absolutely. It will be on your wall for a decade. At least.

When we moved in I decided I’d have what I refer to as the “monkey wallpaper” in our bedroom. I like it so much that now we’ve decorated bedroom I spent a good afternoon trying to reason having it in two rooms. Mildly ridiculous especially when there are no many fab choices out there. Instead, we plumped for the “budgie wallpaper” -it’s classed as “smoked-blue” but when you have it up on the wall the pink prevails (much to the slight annoyance of my boyfriend).

My other favourite is Londinium which is so fun and looks great in a small or a large space. It is also amazing value for money at £17 a roll. I see something new each time I look at it.
