Where could I buy a roll of wallpaper with the "library and shelves bursting with books" I think is fantastic, I need it for a column I have in the middle of the room:( my flat is just 40sq meters.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Life Happens in Hallways
Talk about a hallway carrying a large aesthetic heft. This appears to be a much-trafficked space, and a space visible from many rooms and vantage points. The hallway has become another room entirely in this space. I've recently seen this faux-bookshelf wallpaper around and think it's hilarious, svelte, and creative.
Kirsten added this to The Sumptuous Academic
Inside, every space reflects the Academic's love of art and books, realising its full potential to display her favourite things.
Margaret Everton added this to Contained Chaos
The defining characteristic of this hallway is that is has no definition. While keeping overall to neutral palates, the small size of this hallway gives more freedom to vary its contents. The rooms it leads to give a clean balance.
Kit Pollard added this to Grown Up Collages
Collages certainly don't have to be just prints. I love this hallway for the mix of chunky letters, wallpaper, and posters.

December 13, 2013
In this home, the graphic-designer owner curated a mix of British street art prints combined with wooden letters and a fun wallpaper that looks like an old bookshelf. By selecting pieces with common colors (red, black and white), he created a unified look with many separate pieces. The grey wall color complements the collection, which if you take a closer look, extends down the stairs. In next month’s post, we’ll take a closer look at the options for staircases.
