My First Interior Post feat. John Lewis' Sanderson Wallpapers*

An interior and home post is something I haven't got around to do, and I think I might start a little bit of a wish list for my future home (hopefully next year!). At the moment I'm really stuck for space and with the little one on the way, space is even more of a desire. 

Lets all say welcome to my first interior design post!

Interior design is always something I've been interested in since a young age, and this goes hand in hand with my husband's profession so it's always something at the forefront of both of our minds. We are always looking at wallpaper, interior decoration, fabric and small spaces inspired furniture. 

The first room I've had a lot of thoughts about, and I know it's extremely selfish, would be a room for myself, my dressing room

There are some fabulous wallpapers over on John Lewis's Sanderson range, and for those of you who are regular readers of my blog, and know me well, these are right up my street! I've found it so hard to narrow these wallpapers down as there are so many amazing vintage style patterns that I absolutely adore

So I've attempted to narrow it down to five which are right up there in my favourite ones. As these wallpapers are so vivid and have a luxurious pattern, I think rather than kitting my whole room out with these, I would just have an accent wall. 

China Blue, £51 per roll. 

I absolutely adore this print. I have a passion for everything oriental and this reminds me of the blue willow pattern which is bang on trend as a print and can be seen on matching interior fabrics. 

Ottoline, £44 per roll 

        Lamorna, £26 per roll. 

I've found it really hard to narrow down the floral wallpapers. As a lover of vintage prints and florals, I've decided to chose the Ottoline in charcoal and rose. This is very similar to the wallpaper I have as an accent wall in my bedroom, but much nicer! And, as I had to go for two florals, I picked Lamorna as the second. Something light and neutral with lovely large flowers, always something to pick any room up, and well fitting with the shabby chic look.

Dot to Dot, £36 per roll. 

Another of my favourite prints has to be polka dot, and I'm frequently wearing a vintage inspired polka dot dress. With this print being very neutral and pastel shaded, I think it would be really good for the whole room rather than just an accent wall. 

And last but by no means least...

Omega Cats Wallpaper, £41 per roll. 

I just fancied a bit of fun with this one! I know I have been told I am a crazy cat lady, and animals on print are clearly another one of my favourites! This actually reminds me of my kitty as she is black, and I think this would make a stunning feature wall. You could also use the wallpaper to cover drawers and boxes just to incorporate it all into the room. 

What do you think of my line up?
