Posted in Resources on 6th September 2016
Here at One World Trading, we have a vast array of furniture, lighting and decorative accessories to help make your house a home. But we know these aren't the only elements when it comes to making your space look fabulous. So to help out on all aspects of decorating your home, we are putting together a sourcebook here on our blog - a resource that collates all of our favourite brands together, split up into different aspects of decorating - wallpaper, paint, fabric, flooring, tiles, appliances etc - and we hope this will be somewhere you can come when researching these elements as you plan or update your space.
First up, we are sharing our top wallpaper sources. While wallpaper went out of favour for a period of time, it has come back with a vengeance in the last few years, and now seems more popular than ever, with designers becoming more and more creative – your options really are endless! So hopefully this list will help to point you in the right direction of some of the best sources for purchasing a suitable wallpaper for your scheme.
