If you hanker for authentic victorian tiles but lack the time and inclination to install them, this Paper Tiles wallpaper from British designer Louise Body could be the solution.
A clever trompe l'oeil print creates the effect of vintage aged tiles without the hassle of cement and grout and the paper used is tough enough to be used in place of ceramics. The design incorporates original Victorian tiles but with the addition of hand-drawn flowers for a contemporary twist.
The tiles in the design measure 17.5 x 17.5cm
This design is one of ten, all printed on to hard-wearing paper sourced from managed forests. The paper costs £20 a metre.

The Bookshelf Wallpaper from Young and Battaglia is part of the current trend for photo-realistic wallpapers that add a trompe l'oeil dimension to your decor. The stacks of old books in muted colours follow a haphazard pattern that in the right room would create a great vintage library look.
The wallpaper costs £68 per roll (measuring approx 550 x 3000mm).
