The revival of wallpaper over the last decade has been a gradual but consistent trend. The wallpapered feature
wall is now a regular part of many decorating projects and some designers are predicting the return of
the fully papered room, albeit that they are still the exception at present.
Because Wallpaper is a feature it needs to be selected at an early stage in the project planning exercise. If it
were on a list of priorities it would be around about the same time as the curtains, carpets and furniture all of
which have to live in harmony within the space. From this mixture the Start Colour can be established.
Paint the Town Fred does not supply Wallpaper and recommends clients select and purchase their own from the many
DIY, Decorating and Designer Furnishing stores that stock it. Generally pattern books can be loaned - for a
returnable deposit - so that you can check your choice against the furnishings you need to match. We would
recommend a visit to Brewers, a specialist decorators supplier, who are one of the biggest
suppliers of wallpaper in the UK. Their address in Swindon is:
4 Wyndham Rd.,
Hawksworth Ind Est
Swindon SN1 1EJ
Another option is to use the internet and Brewers also have an extensive web site, featuring
over 70 different makes including the designer brands, under the name of Wallpaper Direct. Samples are available by post at a nominal cost.
Paint the Town Fred is quite happy to quote for wallpapering of client purchases but it is essential that the
correct quantities are ordered and we are happy to assist at the time of quoting.
Please note that wallpaper quantities should always be generous. Ordering additional rolls due to a
miscalculation is likely to lead to slight colour or pattern variations due to using rolls from different batches.
For this reason it is also imperative that purchases of wallpaper are checked to ensure that batch numbers are all
