Cool Idea: Patchwork Wallpapering

This feminine bedroom, styled by Bazaar Style author and stylist Selina Lake, was featured in BBC Homes and Antiques magazine.

I love how a patchwork of vintage wallpapers was used to create this feminine boudoir background. Not only does it give the room a nostalgic, period look, but since it really only requires wallpaper samples, it's also a very affordable. Furthermore, you don't have to be in love with each wallpaper because the patchwork effect overrides the dated look of the individual designs. There's strength in numbers!

I think it is beautiful - I fancy having a bash at it, but do you think it would be okay? Guessing I need some good wallpaper paste, a scalpel and ruler to get it all straight, and a bit of patience! What do you think?

I love it! I wish I could do it without worry that the landlord would be upset... I did however use an idea from a decorating TV show I saw a long time ago and nailed up padding (for extra insulation) and alternating fabric on one bedroom wall. I think it looks nice and seems less permanent than wallpaper I suppose. I think it has really helped with insulating too.
