Decorating and redecorating

As I am organizing yet another move, I have redeveloped an interest in anything related to furnishing and decorating. It won't matter that I won't be able to either furnish or decorate my new place, since I will be moving into a temporary furnished rented apartment. I still like to spend hours looking over the Ikea catalogue or even browsing through the actual store, leaving it without having bought anything but the usual two candles and some Swedish delicatessen (by the way, you should try the Pulla, my Finnish aunt used to bake it for me and it's delicious)...but I am digressing.

I am not sure why I started looking at wallpapers, maybe because the cork wallpaper in my present apartment (yes I do actually have cork covered walls) is so depressing, that I have developed a strong unconscious desire for wall redecoration.

In any case, if I could choose the wallpaper in my new place, I would probably start with Jocelyn Warner wallpapers.

Her designs are created by scanning plants and objects into the computer, then manipulating the image to simplify their form so that they can be easily manufactured.

I find Jocelyn Warner's wallpaper designs very simple and delicate, the sort of thing you could have on your walls for a long time without getting tired of it. I like the leaf collection in the "larger than life" category. You can order the wallpaper directly on the site, via email, fax or phone. Retail prices start from 59 per roll.

Rachel Kelly's interactive wallpaper is another interesting company to consult for redecorating interiors.

The interactive wallpaper is a two-stage bespoke wall covering product (background pattern printed wallpaper with stick-on pattern pieces to attach in-situ) the pattern stickers echo the design of the underlying wallpaper and contrast to create a look of visual depth. The final placing of the pattern pieces and stickers is decided when the wallpaper is in situ to create a bespoke finish specific to each context.

I couldn't find any price or ordering information on the site, but I can imagine it's quite expensive and exclusive.

Should you not be up to covering all of the walls in you house/apartment, but still would like some change, then you can set your creativity loose with the "kits de stickers" from Fleur de Kookyse, starting at 23. Finally Clipso Design also has some really nice wall designs, especially the ones by Lili Aysan, who seems to specialize in kids' room decoration.
