Photowall Wallpaper Mural Review

If you know me well, then you will know that I love interiors. I am always on the hunt for new home decor pieces and I am constantly looking for new decorating ideas online. You can imagine my delight when Photowall contacted me to see if I would like to review their mural wallpaper. Now, usually I am not a fan of mural wallpaper, but I had spotted an amazing design a few weeks before on Instagram which was from the same company, so I was desperate to get my hands on it.

When it came to deciding which room to redecorate, it was tough. I ended up deciding on redecorating our dining room and living room. So far, we have pretty much completed the dining room but have yet to finish up the living room as that was a bigger job. However, I am delighted to share the results of our dining room.
Photowall are a Swedish company who provide the most beautiful custom wallpapers and prints; they have so many designs! I can't wait to redecorate the rest of the house as I know where I will be going for new wallpaper.
The ordering process is fairly easy too and is fantastic to ensure there is minimum waste; you enter the measurements you require (allow a little extra for trims etc) and Photowall will print the wallpaper to those exact measurements for you - none of their products are stored in warehouses! The wallpaper also arrives very compactly packed with minimal packaging which is fantastic.
I decided to go with their Premium wallpaper and I am so glad I did. The first thing I noticed was the thickness and quality of the paper; we have had issues in the past of wallpaper being too thin etc, but this certainly wasn't an issue this time round. We were also provided with wallpaper paste which certainly helped.
On each of our rolls there was seven sheets of wallpaper, each individually numbered to be hung left to right; this helped to ensure that the pattern joined up correctly which made things a lot easier.
When it came to choosing the mural I already knew which one was lusting over, which was Tanglewood Forest Veridian. However, I couldn't believe the range they had available - I almost changed my mind a few times!
Applying the wallpaper was fairly straightforward, especially with the panels being numbered. The paste was also fantastic quality and we had no issues with it at all. We decided to only wallpaper the main wall of the dining room to make it a feature wall, and the same with our living room. However, due to our living room needing new flooring and skirting boards, that will be shared in a few weeks time. We still have some tweaks to make with our dining room, such as a new wall light and flooring, but with the new mural wallpaper, it has really added something a bit different to the room and I love it. The wallpaper also complimented the newly painted walls perfectly! Usually I stick to "safe" colours and patterns, but I am so glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone with this. Everyone has commented on how amazing it looks and, once the finishing touches are added, it'll be even more spectacular.
Photowall have also kindly provided me with a 25% discount code for you guys, which is amazing! If you enter the code "thentherewerethree2020" at the checkout, the discount will be applied.

*Disclosure* Photowall kindly gifted us the wallpaper mural in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
