Unlock the Magic of the Forest in Your Living Room

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Happy International Day of Forests! Yes I know, it's not one that I would remember either! It was only a couple of years ago when The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed the 21 March International Day of Forests.  It's a day where we celebrate the forest for it's wonder and hidden secrets. Forests are a place of wonder, full of trees that have seen centuries of change to new life growing all around. They are mythical magical, haunting and foreboding.  Forests are forever changing, growing and sadly in many places fighting to survive.  The secrets of the forest can now be unlocked and brought into your living room to enjoy all year round with a wealth of forest themed interiors. Wallpaper and Murals From powerful photographic murals to delicate tree motifs, our walls can be decorated with the essence of the forest.  Using vivid colours or monochromatic tones, forest wallpapers are atmospheric.
