We have a wall of Andrew Martin’s Library wallpaper (£135 for 2 rolls, amara.com) in our TV room. It offers a brilliant way to add a relaxing, moody atmosphere to any space and by hanging alternate rolls looks just that bit more realistic. Another good option for bookish types is the very cool Penguin Library by Osborne & Little, a colourful wallpaper that is £76 a roll from amara.com.
For a more classic look, consider the wonderful Ex Libris wallpaper by Cole & Son. Designed by the Italian painter, sculptor and engraver Piero Fornasetti, it costs £94.50 for a roll from wallpaperdirect.com.
