Stylish walls you can afford

American creative designer Amy Butler is the latest big name to have been signed up by British manufacturer Graham & Brown for a new range of wallpapers. Her designs are a pleasing mix of modern colour and bold, retro-look pattern that would be fabulous on single feature walls, or, since the paper costs an affordable £30 a roll, an entire room.

There are six patterns in six colours, including Temple Tulips in Ocean Green (pictured). From, or call 0800 3288 452.
