In the past few months, Amy Butler has collaborated with UK based wallpaper company, Graham and Brown to produce an ecologically- responsible range of wallpaper, printed here in the UK. All the designs are printed on a responsibly-sourced FSC base using water-based inks.


This new collection comprises six colourways: Moss, Midnight, Sunset, Ocean, Field and Stone. Each colourway has eight designs that co-ordinate within their colourway, hence 48 fantastic new wallpaper designs. The range is perfect for the novice interior designer, wary of using pattern on walls, as you can be assured that the prints will work together or on their own.


Obviously not everyone is confident when it comes to mixing print and pattern and putting together a room is a bit like creating a patchwork


quilt by carefully choosing colours, patterns and prints that compliment each other. So, here are a few suggestions: if you choose a big, bold print for wallpaper, it would be wiser to choose smaller patterns for soft furnishings, or pick the main colours from within the wallpaper and use different textures in these colours for your soft furnishings, perhaps using monotone velvet curtains and silk cushion covers.


Fabric collections are often designed to be coordinated, offering you bold prints and stripes or smaller patterns. Harlequin, Designers Guild and Cath Kidston have gorgeous collections for almost every room in your home, producing beautifully complimentary wallpaper and textiles for soft furnishings which greatly simplifies the task of creating a fabulous room.


The ‘“Far Far Away” collection from Harlequin is perfect for a child’s bedroom or playroom, with its bold hot air balloon and double decker bus
