Why Orla Kiely wallpaper?

Printed to order in the UK by a global leading manufacturer of digitally printed wallcoverings, Orla Kiely wallpaper rolls are made from uncoated non-woven paper, and are luxury grade quality. Extra wide and 10m long, Orla Kiely wallpapers allow you to cover more space with a single roll.

Drawing inspiration from the 1960s and 70s, Orla Kiely wallpaper reflects a playful and whimsical aesthetic that is both timeless and contemporary. Patterned wallpaper adds instant character and charm to any space. 

Choosing a patterned wallpaper that works with your space.

With so many different styles, patterns and colours of wallpaper available, it's easy to get overwhelmed with choice. Getting inspiration from your room's existing style and colour scheme is essential to ensure a bold pattern would work within your space. First off, think about whether you're looking to introduce a bold statement wall, or whether you'd like a more subtle pattern running throughout the room.

For the maximalists reading this, we've seen some stunning transformations with our Dahlia print wallpaper. A bold and striking design, Dahlia is a popular choice for feature walls, capturing the attention of everyone that enters the room. For those that prefer a subtler look, our Giant Linear Stem wallpaper featuring a more structured, repeated graphic print (available in multiple colourways) is a popular choice for covering a larger area in the room. An easier print to blend in to the background (but with no less impact!), our Linear Stem wallpapers are perfect for injecting a bit of mid-century modern flair to your room without dominating the other patterns and colours in the room.

How to hang wallpaper.

For best results, it is advisable that a professional decorator is used. Once your rolls have been inspected, you must ensure your walls are clean, dry and even, removing any old wallpaper or loose paint. For best results we recommend that walls are cross lined using a good quality lining paper, which should be allowed to dry out completely before hanging the wallpaper.

A paste the wall product, the decorator should use a good quality, solvent free, fungicide protected ready-mixed tub adhesive. Apply paste evenly to the wall one hang length at a time, to an area slightly wider than the width of the paper. Butt joints and use a decorators brush to smooth down the wallpaper, working from the centre to the edges.
