My wife and I saw a wallpaper in B&Q and fell in love with it. There was no mention of price or item number. But we took a photo of it as we wanted this to go in the front lounge of our new house. We could'nt find where the rolls were either but because we had not exchanged contracts I thought it best just to be safe not to buy or enquire about the wallpaper.

Now we are on the verge of moving and B&Q are saying they don't even know what the wallpaper is or the item number?! Why have it on display if you don't know anything about it?! I am going to include the photo of the wallpaper and if anyone knows of it or where i can find something similar it would be greatly appreciated. My wife would be chuffed! Many thanks in advance.

I've had a look and it appears to be manufactured by French company Lutece. I've found the same design but in a different colour, mainly on French websites. I'll link you to a couple of them:

Other than that I can't tell you any more. Hope this helps though.

Take it into your local Johnstones paint, I was shocked on how much wallpaper they stock and the binder's full of samples was colossal.

Although I believe certain branches only specialise in wallpaper, so travel round!

These days it is possible to buy wall coverings directly from manufacturers which allows you to save your dollar quite a bit. Check out that page. It lists web site addresses of manufacturers of wall coverings.

I've seen similiar patterns in Laura Ashley it might be nice if you did a feature wall or I have heavy printed paper on the bottom half and a dado rail and then cream above which means I only have to do one half at a time if I choose! Good luck with the move anyway icon_biggrin.gif
