Painted Owl Wallpaper from Anthropologie

Owl-inspred design ought to have become tired by now but there's something incredibly enduring about these birds and this Painted Owl Wallpaper from Anthroplogie is another gem.

The design alternates a diamond-pattern stripe with a repeat owl motif in both black and white and colour. The monochromatic background ensures that the coloured owls really pop; they have a kaleidoscopic quality in terms of both colour and pattern. The design is inspired by Russian Lubok printing; a popular folk art style.

The wallpaper costs £78 a roll which will cover 5m² and comes with SureStrip backing which means no messing around with wallpaper paste, simply wet the reverse and hang.
