WE FIRST STARTED USING TEXTURED WALL-COVERINGS about four or five years ago,” says Marion Falchi, director of Falchi Interiors. “I was beginning to feel that walls were looking cold and that something more was required.”

That something was the modern iteration of wallpaper – a visual cross between paper and fabric with the practical easy-care qualities of vinyl. The result is a warm and versatile background to any interior scheme. The variety of textures and colours available delivers the choice necessary to suit all tastes and it is possible to select variations that can be used, with the right adhesive, in bathrooms and kitchens. What’s more they are very forgiving on a less than perfect wall surface.

At Falchi, the brands that we work with the most are Arte and Muraspec and Arte’s Lino range is one that clients are frequently drawn towards.

“These papers work beautifully with The Little Greene Company’s Loft White 222 for ceilings and Slaked Lime for skirtings and woodwork. I think now if a client asked for a painted wall, I would suggest one of the wallpapers now available that echo painted finishes such as Greenwall 1 by Masureel – Collection Blone 1023” says Marion.
