My Victorian hallway featuring Graham & Brown’s Bloomsbury wallpaper of the year 2020.
I am really excited to reveal my newly decorated Victorian hallway using Graham & Brown’s Wallpaper of the year 2020 – The Bloomsbury Collection in Neo Mint.
As you can see the wallpaper is a beautiful statement piece.
There are 3 other colourways – Emerald ( a deep green), Stone ( a light grey) and Noir (a charcoal grey).
When I first saw the wallpaper, I simply couldn’t stop staring at it.
It’s so full of joy and happiness don’t you think? Just look at those pretty, colourful flowers and butterflies.
We may be descending into Autumn, but this glorious design is bringing all those Spring vibes back indoors.
I really think the colours compliment my interior space so well.
My hallway walls are painted in Graham & Brown Dee and the dado rails and skirting boards in Graham & Brown white.
There are so many possibilities for the wall colour of this Victorian hallway. All you have to do is to extract the colours from the wallpaper.
Graham & Brown have actually colour matched the wallpaper to their paints.
The deeper pink of the wallpaper is colour matched to Graham & Brown Popsicle, the mint to Graham & Brown Stirling green, and the greys to Graham & Brown Stone.
The rich bottle green shade of the wallpaper is colour matched to Graham & Brown’s Colour of the year 2020 Adeline.
My stairs are painted in Graham & Brown’s Barker Grey.
The wallpaper name was inspired by the famous Bloomsbury group, taking from it that Victorian Boho aesthetic with its unconventional, eclectic and artistic style.
Graham & Brown’s paint Colour of the year 2020, Adeline, is taken from the first name of the famous writer Virginia Woolf, part of the Bloomsbury group.
I wanted to restore my Victorian terrace house, in line with its era, but with my own quirky twist.
Bold floral wallpaper is very much a feature of the Victorian era.
When Graham & Brown showed me their wallpaper of the year, I knew that it would be perfect for my space.
As my hallway is narrow, I decided to wallpaper one side of the wall. Covering both sides would have probably made the space feel cramp.
The opposing wall has been painted in Graham & Brown’s Dee.
Where the stairs created a visual divide, I continued the wallpapering on the opposite wall.
I’ve kept the doors and frames in Graham & Brown white, making the wallpaper the key focal point.
I wanted the wallpaper to frame my hallway mirror, so I picked this beautiful rimless House Doctor mirror that I bought from Haygen.
This radiator cover has been a life saver because my existing radiator would have spoiled the look of the hallway.
I can now also place decor and scent on the cover surface to create an impact on entering.
For the finishing touches, I added my favourite Pappelina rug on the floor.
So, what do you think? I’d love to hear your views.
