The following image featured in an on-line magazine lonnymag.com creates a really dramatic and glamorous feel to an understated kitchen. I love the fact by using a beautiful wallpaper you can transform a home.
Here are a few of my favourite wallpapers including the above that I would use within the kitchen to achieve a similar effect to the photograph above. Although there are now wallpapers specifically designed for kitchen use I have not had problems using any type of wallpaper as long as careful consideration is given to how it is used.
I do love the use of grey and black for a dramatic and luxurious effect, although personally I prefer the following image as I love the combination of the feminine colours in the wallpaper with the contemporary interior and kitchen. This stunning image and wallpaper can be found at Fromental
I love the combination of a contemporary kitchen with floral wallpapers for a sophisticated bohemian style. This is the style that I am personally drawn to and one I am trying to achieve in my own surface pattern designs. Following is a mood board to show the colours and wallpaper I would use in one of my favourite Plain English kitchens.

I am currently working on some designs that I would love to use as wallpapers in the same way as above and will share them here on my blog in the near future.
