Take Your Pick: Illustrative Town Wallpapers

1. Sanderson's St. Ives | 2. A Sunday in Paris; red/blue or yellow/silver
I love that wallpaper continues its bold resurgence into interiors with each seasonal collection. Today I thought I would share two designs (well, technically three if we count the colourway options of the second but let's roll with two) that have caught my eye recently. The first, St Ives, by Sanderson comes in this bright and vibrant pink/cream colourway that would be ideal for a downstairs toilet or playroom. The second paper is called A Sunday in Paris and is my favourite (potentially due to my recent trip to Paris!). Depicting a playful weekend day in the city, the design is full of movement, activity and intrigue. Which wallpaper gets your vote, folks?

  1. Cute. I have a feeling you'd like the Hibernian House print by Publisher Textiles: http://www.publishertextiles.com.au/handprintedwallpaper

  3. I love this quirky styles. No. 2 I could see for a kid's room. Hope I can style my niece's room one day. Then I'll go for such a quirky wallpaper:-)

  4. Love Sunday in Paris!! Both colors look fantastic and maybe I will just have to wallpaper a walk-in closet with it! Who wouldn't want a walk-in closet in Paris?

  8. Oh, I love them both! I love famille summerbelle's style and Paris, but I think for our home I'd prefer St. Ives. Not in pink though, if there was the blue or gray like in the deco houses, that would be perfect! :-)

  10. A Sunday in Paris gets my vote! Love it.
    The other one is beautiful too but I'll always choose Paris ;-)

  11. I love the first one... There's a childrens book 'Jack and the FlumFlum Tree' illustrated by David Roberts that has a similar design in the cover and I ripped it out and framed it as I liked it so much. Ssssh. Don't tell my three year old I'm a total hypocrite on ripping books.

  12. I think once you've been to Paris it just gets under your skin! I love Sunday in Paris too, blue & red for me.

  14. I'd have to go with the second one, Will! I mean, "Sunday in Paris"? Sold!

  16. St Ives for me! Cute little colourful houses! I think I prefer Anthropologie's Paris wallpaper - http://www.anthropologie.eu/en/uk/wallpaper/cest-magnifique-wallpaper/invt/7573465570029/&bklist=icat,5,shop,forhome,shopbyhome,wallwallpaper

  18. Such wonderfully quirky paper! Makes me wish I could have my boys all over again, just to decorate their nursery with these fun wallpapers! (but then I remember the sleepless nights and 1000 nappies a day...maybe not)
    However, the charm of these is their longevity. They'd be perfect for most ages!
