Bookshelf Wallpaper – Create The Look Of A Home Library

Saturday, January 12th, 2013

Bec and George The Block Sky High - Bookcase WallpaperI’ve always dreamt of having my own library at home just like in the movies.

The kind that has a big old fireplace and a big winged back chair with floor to ceiling bookshelves all the way around that must have a slide along floor to ceiling ladder to reach them all.

Of course these days you would have to live in a mansion to accommodate anything like that. Also with the digital world of ipads and kindles, books are slowly being replaced.

The good news is you can recreate the romance and mystery of your very own home library with the use of wallpaper.

Bookshelf wallpaper has become very popular and that’s because everything old becomes new again. People yearn for a time when life was much simpler and technology had not engulfed our lives.

To get that vintage feel of a library I have found a few different bookshelf wallpapers.

However if you’re looking for something a bit brighter and a whole lot of fun then there might just be something for you too.


This first bookshelf design is from Kemra Wallpaper here in Australia. It’s an authentic vintage feel paper that oozes that old world charm.
Their papers are made in a wider width than usual at 61.5cm.

Andrew Martin – Navigator Collection – Library

This really is the perfect wallpaper if you’re after that old time vintage feel library atmosphere. Nothing says old fashioned home library like old leather bound books.

This particular paper is available in a few different colours and looks so authentic with it’s hand painted effect.

It is richly detailed and quite luxurious reminiscent of old books, postcards, collecting, autographs and stamps. This is just the right wallpaper if you’re after the feel of a gentlemen’s club or old-fashioned smoking room direct from the archives of old Hollywood films.

A stunning Library design in a hand painted effect, showing in a multi colouring – other colours are available. This design will definitely create that private home library feel.
