Wallpaper Wednesday: Illuminate by Harlequin

After last weeks’ calm and elegant affair, this week I’m back to showcasing something bigger and bolder for our regular Wallpaper Wednesday blog post.

This fun quirky print from Harlequin would make an amazing statement in an alcove or on a feature wall. (I’m very tempted to use this one when I redecorate the dining room!). It’s very contemporary, and would look great teamed with white gloss furniture and flashes of citrus shades in accessories.

Illuminate in Steel by Harlequin available from John Lewis £40 per roll.

Illuminate is also available in this very funky Sulphur colourway, again £40 per roll.

And it comes in Red too!

Go on be brave and give it a go! I know this isn’t necessarily one of the cheaper papers but it would so be worth it.

    Loving that one ! A bit tempted as my now scruffy orange stripes are in dire need of replacement ! Citrus sounds great and I have the white gloss kitchen!

      I love this one too! Really fancy it for my dining room, my red walls are looking scruffy too! Don’t have the white gloss though so that could be a whole big shopping trip! Glad you like this one Emma x

    I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this wallpaper!!

    My favourite colourway is “steel.” I just love the illustrative quality. Hmmmm … wonder if the husband would agree it’s time to re decorate?! 😀 xx
