Hello! I’m Andrea, founder and designer at Wallpapers 4 Beginners.
If you’re here, you’re probably looking to update your home – maybe it’s a spare room you no longer want to be spare, that awkward space under the stairs or a tired-looking living room that really needs some colour – whatever it is, we have a wallpaper for you that’s easy to hang.
I’ve always been interested in the art of design, but it didn’t begin with wallpaper. I had a fashion boutique for a few years and that, surprisingly, is where my love for wallpaper started. I wanted the shop to have a homely feel, complete with dramatic walls and furniture. The contrast between fashion and wallpaper was the perfect backdrop to the shop and I loved how my customers reacted to it.
When I realised my eye was being drawn more to wallpaper than fashion, I decided to learn as much as possible about this ancient art – how it evolved out of the need to change heavy tapestries, its roots in China and how it gained popularity around the world. From there I started designing my first wallpapers and it’s grown ever since. Each unique design is inspired by Italy, nature and history. I knew I wanted the wallpaper to be handmade with care, preserving the artisanal craft I’d learnt about but modernising it to make the process vegan, sustainable and free from solvents and pollutants. I also wanted to ensure that my designs were accessible to all and that there was no need for a professional – they’re all easy to hang and remove!
We hand print every sheet, ensuring you get the highest quality, Italian designed wallpaper for your home.
