FAVOURITE FINDS | Top 10 Floral Wallpapers Under £60
When the sun is shining and the flowers are blooming outside, its hard to resist the temptation of bringing all of that floral goodness indoors too. So whilst I've been busily filling every vase with flowers, I'm not sure that it's going to be enough to curb my enthusiasm for the beautiful floral wallpapers around at the moment.
There's no getting away from it, it comes at a cost. A high quality estate emulsion will cost around £1-2 per square metre in comparison to wall paper equating to around £12-£24 per square metre and can easily amount to more.
Standard wallpaper rolls in Europe are usually 10.05 m x 0.53 m, which amounts to 5 square metres. To give you a rough estimate, if the height of your walls is between 2.70 and 2.80 m, a roll of wallpaper sized 10.05 x 0.53 m will result in 3 strips (159 cm wide). But remember when you're calculating how much you need, ensure you add at least 10% extra for pattern matching and trimming.There are lots of wallpaper calculators online to help you get this right before pressing that 'purchase' button.
So without further ado, here is my top ten favourite floral wallpapers that I have been obsessing over, all are £60 or less per roll (£12 or less per square metre). If you've got the spring/summer vibes and thinking of taking the plunge, then these may make it a little easier on your purse.
1. Graham & Brown | Bouquet | £60 for 10m These big blousy blooms remind me of a renaissance painting. The coral touches with that deep forest green are perfect and make it feel rich and luxurious. An elegant pattern, this would work so well with dark woodwork.
This isn't too dissimilar to the William Morris prints I love so much. Delicate detailed flowers and leaves with a wonderful blend of pinks and greens. This really feels like an English cottage garden on the walls.
3. Wallpaper Direct Galerie Apelviken | Anemone in Mustard | £58.45 for 10m (Use discount code SV6569 at checkout)
This is perhaps my favourite if I was forced to choose, so much so, the lovely people at Wallpaper Direct have given me a discount code for you to get 10% off, thereby reducing it to less than £60 and allowing me to keep this one in my list! I adore the colourway with the mustard, pink and green combination, I would hang this wallpaper in a little girl's bedroom or nursery paired with vintage furniture.
Now just imagine this on the top half of a wall with dark blue panelling across the lower half to ground it. Whilst many floral wallpapers are often light and breezy, this is far more striking and dramatic.
5. Colibri Inverted Florals by AS Creations | £19.50 for 10m This wallpaper is very reasonably priced, the flowers and foliage are illustrative and fun and this particular colourway includes lilac accents which give a nod to the current trend we're seeing in interiors.
6. Boråstapeter | Herbarium | £47.20 for 10m There is a childlike quality to this wallpaper, so, as much as it would suit a bright and fresh dining room, I think this would make a beautiful backdrop for a child's bedroom or playroom.
7. Wallpaper by Ellos | Tapet Svea | £42.83 for 10m You need a mate in Sweden to get your hands on this wallpaper as it's only available there! The wallpaper had to feature in my top 10 though because it reminds me of vintage botanical prints or an Instagram flatlay. I think it would look beautiful in so many different rooms and settings, a really adaptable option!
8. Boråstapeter Alicia Wallpaper 6705 at Fashion Interiors | £40.00 for 10m My favourite colour; green! This wallpaper is so fresh and encapsulates springtime. As you've guessed by now from this list, Boråstapeter have a winning combination of beautiful detailed floral wallpapers with a price tag that is also affordable.
9. Dunelm | NuWallpaper Groovy Garden Navy Self Adhesive Wallpaper £24 for 5.48m Don't have the paste, brush and wallpaper table? Well don't worry, this one is self adhesive, just peel the backing off and stick it to your wall. It promises not to leave a sticky residue behind so would be a perfect choice for rented homes or if you're prone to changing your scheme regularly.
10. Graham & Brown Stroma Dandelion Wallpaper | £60 for 10m Cheerful yellow mixed with a subtle and delicate floral pattern, perfect to give your home a lift this spring / summer season, great if you're dipping your toe in the wallpaper waters, as its not too bold or overpowering.
So that's it, my round up of floral wallpapers on a budget, I hope you've liked them and will be drooling over them as much as me!
