Now for the reveal…..all the wallpapers were from Graham and Brown – not a company featured much in the interior design world glossies.  But many of the concepts here are visually similar to their posher counterparts: Honolulu palm versus Palm by Cole and Son, Capulet teal versus Hermes jardin d’osier, tudor houses versus Fornasetti.   But their price point? Nothing here was over £20..and some of them were as low as £7.50 per roll…check it out:

One = Honolulu palm green for £20 per roll.

Two = Desire gold for £8.50 (in the sale) or £17 per roll

Three = Marvel action hero for £10 per roll

Four = Juan white for £7.50 per roll

Five = Jiao pruple for £7.50 per roll

Six = Tranquil purple for £7.50 per roll

Seven = Bao white for £7.50 per roll

Eight = Desire damson for £7.50 per roll

Nine = Fresco Mai for £10 per roll

Ten = Olympus black/white for £10 per roll

Eleven = Majestic black for £15 per roll

Twelve = Petit papillon black for £20 per roll

Thirteen = Do the stretch mustard for £20 per roll

Fourteen = Capulet teal for £20 per roll

Fifteen = Botanic charcoal for £20 per roll

Sixteen = Kelly’s Ikat for £20 per roll

Seventeen = Enigma white/prussian blue for £20 per roll

Eighteen = world heritage black/white for £20 per roll
