Have you ever got lost in a picture, or imagined yourself wandering through wallpaper? When I was little, my mum bought a poster that had scenes from nursery rhymes on it, playing out amidst a landscape of rolling hills. I’d often imagine I was climbing the hill with Jack & Jill then marching back down again with the Grand Old Duke of York and his crew. I had a similar sensation when I went to the @ideal_home_show yesterday and saw this @lucytiffney Mr Bear wallpaper (bottom right) in the Innovation Home designed by the fantabulous @sophierobinsoninteriors In my mind, I was sitting on the porch of the red house then adjusting the wing mirrors in the little pink car before scaling the stems of the towering flowers. And no, I hadn’t even had a drink…I guess great design can take us to the most unexpected places. What wallpaper worlds have you ever visited?
