Wallpaper has been making a comeback as we turn our backs on soft white sheens in favour of something more decorative. We love the new England Rugby wallpaper designed by Nether Wallop’s Sporting Wallpaper Ltd

Forget posters of your favourite team and go one step further with England Rugby feature wallpaper. The wallpaper is designed from Twickenham programmes and match tickets from the World Rugby Museum collection. Among the gems is the first ever Twickenham International match programme, England v Wales in 1910 and the programme from the Centenary match 100 years later. As well as the programme from the 100th match between England and Ireland, a rare programme from England v Australia in 1958, the England v Argentina programme in 1978 as well as a ticket from an England v Scotland match in 1911.

The design has been carried out with care to ensure that home nations - England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales are all well represented, as well as France, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Russia, Canada and Argentina. It’s also been cleverly designed so that it will sit well within an existing colour scheme, customers will not feel that they have to redecorate an entire room to be able to use this paper.

“It’s a very exciting new product which will create a real impact wherever it is used,” promises Frances Titmus Mather from Sporting Wallpaper Ltd in Nether Wallop. “There is nothing like it in the market to date. It takes putting posters of your favourite team on the wall to the next level.

“We believe that it will appeal to a wide range of customers - residentially, children in their bedrooms and grown-ups in their ‘man caves’ or home offices and commercially - sporting venues including pubs and restaurants, rugby club changing rooms and bars, as well as schools and universities.”

“The end product shows the wonderful array of designs, fonts, imagery and colours used over the last 100 years of Twickenham match programmes and tickets,” adds Jane Barron, from the RFU.
