London shops: EW Moore

I've lived with a wall full of various wallpaper samples for at least two years now, so I no longer notice that they are there. Although I think I've eliminated all of the samples, they are still on the wall...

A new discovery, which might take me in a different direction is EW Moore's wallpaper shop, which sells wallpapers from the 1950s onwards, and which are very competitive on price with some of the modern designer options {their papers are from £25 a roll.}


I was mainly drawn to the yellow wallpapers on their website, which means at least I may have narrowed down my colour choice... {a non-vintage wallpaper I'm newly considering is this one, although I don't have the super-stylish option of a yellow formica table and white floors to compliment it.}


Brown and orange, a colour scheme that reminds me of my parents' first carpet.

Lots to think about, but I think I'll take some more time to mull it over...

All of them are so pretty! Please be sure to post the one that you decide on. Can't wait to see it. I may have to do a little bit of wall paper shopping too! You've inspired me!

Nooo! The secret is out! Don't tell everyone... shhhhhhh. There will none of this simply beautiful wallpaper left. I have samples stuck all over the place too. Curling and yellowing slightly. Okay we will make a decision together. lou x

More yellow! I just blogged about yellow & now it's everywhere I go this morning - I LOVE those wallpapers.

I spent months with green paint samples all over a wall in my apartment in Dublin. It's true - you stop seeing them after a while...
