To many people, environmentally friendly still equals a compromise. So, it’s great to discover a new range of paste-the-wall wallpapers that are anything but.
Jeff Banks‘s new range, called Arteco, is a collection that, while it’s printed on FSC-approved paper and uses water-based inks, is gorgeous.

Most have a slight shimmer, that I was assured, is also still eco friendly as it isn’t achieved using mica, like many papers. They even take design influences from the iconic 1951 Festival of Britain, for extra on-trend kudos.
Produced in conjunction with Rasch, the Arteco collection is soon to be available through Brewers and independent retailers at around £20 a roll, so start planning your kitchen’s feature wall right now. Other colours include silver grey, deep red, cream and gold and chocolate brown.
I was lucky enough to go to the launch of the range and see them in the flesh on the walls of a real house, as well as meet the man himself.
