One thing we always recommend is to order a sample of any wallpaper you're considering. Avery Thatcher, founder of Thatcher, says, “Something that looked amazing online might look cheap or plastic-like in real life. A high-quality wallpaper will have an appealing and luxurious texture and feel.” 

The addition of elegant wallpaper to just one wall can have a huge impact in a room, giving your space that luxury feel without breaking the bank. We have a wide selection of hand printed metallic golds, shimmering silvers or dramatic gunmetal on soft matte, clay coated paper - perfect for any project that needs that extra touch of sophistication.
