The House of Hackney

Textures/patterns/colours/illustrations/prints in paper and fabric.... these are the stuff of which my happy place is abundant with.

I have long been a fan of the bludgeoning creativity of House of Hackney. They have provided a wayward passage in my Bauhaus loving mental state with their wonderfully garish and playful wallpaper and fabric designs:

/Dalston Rose Wallpaper

/Flights of Fancy Wallpaper

/Queen Bee Wallpaper

/Hackney Empire Velvet Topsy Turvy Fabric

"House of Hackney takes the concept of British home wares and turns it on its head subverting traditional products with playful and irreverent prints and imagery to appeal to a new generation"

I am sure Hiro would firmly forbid me to add any of the above into any space in our future Grand Design. While he may foot his foot down, he has absolutely no say what would go into my library. There will certainly be some House of Hackney in this Bauhaus meets Safari Lodge room (complete with veranda) alongside some taxidermy and secret trap doors for those who dare to trespass. I can dream!


  1. Ohhhh your dream library sounds wonderful (minus the trapdoor, I wouldnt particularly enjoy falling to my death by stepping on the wrong panel).

    The wallpapers with the animals remind me of the natural history museum taxidermy displays!

  2. My trapdoor wouldnt kill anyone! It would simply trap someone in a surreal landscape for approx 23.7 minutes.

  3. These are great prints. Not sure my other half would let me either. But my own space might see some too. Thank you for your support over my busy few weeks. Xxxx

  4. i think they're ace, can't really imagine them in my place but can certainly see them in an eccentric library

  5. If you are decorating your new home, I would love to see the pictures of the final 'product' because knowing your aesthetic I'm sure it will be beautiful! I've always had mixed feeling with wall-paper, but I'm changing my mind because they can give a great character to a room if you play well with the colour of ceiling and floor. The last pattern would be great to cover a very stylish armchair!

    1. I know what you mean but I do think that accents of wallpaper can be interesting. The husband would disagree.

  6. These are so pretty! I love the bird one :) x

  7. They are amazing! Even though I've subscribed to white walls only these House of Hackney wallpapers would tempt me so much. I guess the price would provide a solution...


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note, they are the stuff that keeps us going.
