I seem to have been featuring wallpapers constantly on the blog lately so thought it the perfect opportunity to add these Andrew Martin ones to my list of favourites. Wallpaper not surprisingly, as a backlash to all those plain pastel walls of recent years is seeing a mass revival. Designers have just gone wallpaper crazy with fantastic inventive and unique designs springing up all over the place - so... keep watching and i'll keep looking.
