Hanging my wallpaper designs in your home is (of course!) a very stylish way to add colour and vibrance to your home. If you're an enthusiastic DIYer take a look at my installation advice below. If you're unsure I recommend hiring a professional decorator to measure and install your wallpaper, and feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further advice.
Your wall should be clean, dry and smooth. It should be free of any flecks or residue from old paper and any flaking paint should be removed.
If you need to wash your walls use a light coloured cloth and a bucket containing warm water, eco dish soap and a dash of white vinegar.
For best results I recommend priming your walls, Little Greene's wall primer sealer is water based and environmentally friendly.
If you need to, pre cut strips to your wall height and pattern repeat.
Wet the back of the paper with a sponge and wait 10 minutes.
Apply paste (I recommend Auro wallpaper paste 389) using a 3/8" nap roller.
Book the paper and leave for 15 minutes to acclimate.
Paste the acclimated strip on to the wall using a wallpaper smoother to push out air pockets or bubbles. Move on to your next strip.
After approximately 20-30 minutes, as the wallpaper paste begins to set, roll the seams lightly using a seam roller. Avoid excessive pressure with the seam roller to maintain an even amount of paste behind the paper.
In the process don't stack booked strips, the added weight could cause creases.
