Strike a Light vintage matchbox wallpaper

Strike a light wallpaper

We featured prints based around matchbox art before, but this Strike a Light wallpaper takes the idea to a whole new level. 

The paper is a striking piece of design, decorated with a repeat pattern of vivid vintage-style matchboxes. Each matchbox has their own fascinating motifs and slogans and, as a whole, the paper captures a bygone period of advertising and its unusual looks would make it perfect for a feature wall. 

This is the most colourful of the options, but it's also available in a charcoal or a taupe wash. 

A roll of the paper is £60 from Wallpaper Space.

Britpop wallpaper at Wallpaper Space


If Noel Gallagher is looking to do a spot of decorating to take his mind off the Oasis split, he may well be interested in this Britpop wallpaper from Wallpaper Space. Not only does it revive that 1990s era when he was at his peak in popularity but of course, by default, it reflects Britpop's obsession with the sixties. Handily it also fits well with the trend for union jack patriotism that's going on in interior design right now.   

The wallpaper is printed with newspaper stories from the nineties, superimposed with union jack patterned shapes of dogs, phone boxes, minis and (especially for you Noel) guitars. The paper is shown in its most traditional red, white and blue colour way above but also comes in, what Wallpaper Space describes as poptastic pink, camouflage green, urban grey or liquorice black. All the papers have a matt finish.   

The paper costs £55 a roll from the Wallpaper Space website
