The most artistic Cole & Son: This English company was founded in 1875 but its collaborations with contemporary artists keep it feeling fresh. There are 994 options to choose from, but if we could only pick one, it would have to be Woods.

The most temporary - Chasing Paper: If you’re afraid of regretting your decision or like to change style each season, Chasing Paper has the perfect solution for redecorating your walls without too much commitment thanks to its collection of wallpaper and temporary stick-ons that are easy to apply and remove. 


The most authentic - Little Greene: The very high quality English wallpaper brand has a wonderful selection of papers arranged according to colour, collection, style and even period! A touch of the 18th Century, anyone?
