The beautiful wallcovering below is the result of a special collaboration between innovative wall specialists Surface View and the Museum of London. It is a section taken from Charles Booth’s Poverty Map, dating from 1889 and depicting Paddington and Hyde Park at the time. Each area is colour coded to depict the areas of wealth and destitution. Take a look to see which popular areas have now evolved into the London of today. You can also separately purchase the accompanying hand coloured key for the original map, which is pictured beneath.

This beautiful Wall Garden wallpaper (below) is part of the new Greenhouse collection from Rebel Walls. Combining vintage hand drawn floral designs with worn timber planks, it is at once rough and rustic yet delicate and feminine, making it perfect for papering a bedroom. The flower patterns had been long forgotten, since their heyday over a hundred years ago, and were only recently rediscovered in dusty archives in France. They have been given a new lease of life by as part of this charming wallcovering.
