Wallpaper Boutique – Design Essentials

boutique wallpaper selection image

Monument Interiors is your affordable wallpaper boutique, but what exactly is “Boutique Wallpaper”?

Whether it echoes the glamour of a bygone era, or suggests the contemporary chic of a Manhattan loft, boutique is where comfort and style collide to create a truly luxurious setting – and boutique wallpaper captures this very essence.

The style of a boutique hotel is intimate, exceptionally luxurious and with some quirky touches that hint at further surprises to follow.

Hotel to Hometel with Boutique Wallpapers

The boutique style is not restricted solely to bedrooms. You can give any room the five-star treatment with our hand-selected boutique wallpaper collection.

The key criteria for a boutique hotel is the personalised, customised, unique, and individual experience afforded to its guests.

You can achieve the ‘bespoke’ look with the High Wire design which is silk-screen printed by hand, and made in East London with bespoke colours upon request. Inspired by Victoriana and the death-defying thrills of the circus, ‘High-Wire’ pays homage to leaping acrobats and swinging trapeze artists.

Because its designer, Daniel Heath, values tradition and craft, each wallpaper is made to order, and therefore truly individual. It is available in Petrol, Colbolt, Olive, Grape, Mustard, Grey & Tangerine.

Come Hither

A tad risque, A Bash or Do is a gorgeous boutique wallpaper fashioned from a selection of original 1890’s photographs combined with stunning images of insects and burlesque ladies.

The smooth pearlescent effect of this paper has to been seen to be fully appreciated, so why not order a sample today?

Alternatively, take a look at Dupenny‘s handprinted collection which includes the cheeky Burlesque design.

Once you have chosen your boutique wallpaper, you can complete the burlesque look with feathers, mirrors, pearls and velvet…and a touch of imagination.


For a really indulgent look, Erica Wakerly’s Microstripe Cream and Gold design is perfect with its very fine cream vertical stripe against a gold background. The paper has a wider stripe of metallic at the edge of the paper which can be retained for an overall panelled effect, or trimmed for a continuous finish. It is also available in Charcoal & Silver and White & Silver.

Key to pulling off this look is ensuring the quality is matched with a few quirky touches. It is important also not to introduce too many colours but instead, build up the opulent look through a variety of different textures in complementary creams and caramels. A chandelier – the bigger the better – is a must for this style. Remember, more is more!

Metropolitan Boutique

The very best boutique hotels have cultural and historic authencity – whether that is a subtle nod to a building’s industrial past or an upcycled church pew – is up to you.

We love this Wardour boutique wallpaper which is reminiscent of the Paris Metro with, perhaps, a touch of New York’s infamous Chelsea Hotel.

This paper is taken from designer Olivia Berry’s debut collection and was inspired by Soho, one of London’s most vibrant areas. Other designs in the range are Berwick, Broadwick, Dean, Old Compton and Shaftsbury – each design being inspired by the streets it is named after. The collection is a mix of bright colours set against dramatic backgrounds infused with bursts of light.

It is a versatile, contemporary look which would work well in many settings.

Staying Power

What can we say about Mi Casa Su Casa?! This wallpaper is the star of the show!

Part collage, part treasure hunt, this photographic wallpaper uses seemingly random images , making it fascinating to look at. While certainly not a subtle look, this is one boutique wallpaper you will never tire of.
