I hope you can help. I'm looking for wallpaper that I've seen in real life. Trouble is, I can't remember where I saw it. I think it was either in the treatment rooms of a spa I was at, or on DIYSOS... (so not very real life then...)

It has a pale bluey teal background, and a birds on branches pattern. I think the birds (or flowers near the birds) were a quite bright pink. The whole thing was really quite delicate. (If I ever find it, it will be for my bedroom.)

The closest thing I've found is this, which I really don't like at all.

This is really close!

But it's not it. sad

Looking for darker blue, more delicate birds...

HonkHonk Thu 19-Sep-13 19:23:41

Better link.

(Don't mind me, just chatting to self...)

Is it this one
summer palace
Or this one
grove garden or am I miles off?

this one from pip?
flowers in the mix

Oh thank you for not leaving me chatting to myself!

None of them are it. It's bluier than the Summer Palace, and more delicate than the Pip one. I love the Osborne & Little one (except for the 'Osborne' part of that which would make me angry every time I looked at the walls!). But it's probably also the least close to the one I'm looking for.

paper moon one

You can also try googling on wallpaper pink bird blue (as I did) and scan through the images...

Ooh, that's close. (Not it, but close.) Bit spendy though. sad

HonkHonk Thu 19-Sep-13 20:22:50

Lots of posts! Thanks! It was the Cole and Son one that was close and spendy.

I've been googling for hours....

I LOVE the Quentin Blake one! (for someone else's bedroom -- not mine!)

Love the Fleurs et Toiles one. Gorgeous. Not the one I was looking for, but in the running!

Also not this:

Seen the next one already. (It's quite a frontrunner too, atm).

You're great at this mummaemma. Want to do the rest of the house for me? ;)

grin i like a challenge

HonkHonk Thu 19-Sep-13 21:06:05

I'm thinking I might need to go back to the spa for a photo. On the off chance that's where I saw it, of course. :D

Thanks very much everyone. Still not found the one I was looking for, but found some others I do think are beautiful and might use. (Pip and Next, fwiw. Would love the Osborne and Little one, but I just can't put my money into that tw@t's family! Also, it's kinda spendy, which makes sticking to my principles that much easier. grin)

Summer palace was my thoughts too.

It's not sanderson finches is it?

HonkHonk Fri 20-Sep-13 21:44:38

No, but that's lovely!

Oh I fell in love with a wallpaper on the DIY SOS programme. It was in the little girls room in Wales who lived with her Dad in a caravan. It was very pretty with birds on it. I wonder if that is the one you are remembering OP? I'm on the look out for it as well. Might have to check the website of the programme smile

Cheshireblue Sun 22-Sep-13 19:39:09

any of these?

HonkHonk Mon 23-Sep-13 00:01:08

Itwillbe, that's one of the few episodes of diy sos I've seen recently so maybe it's that, but I couldn't find it on the website. Bah!

itwillbebetter Mon 23-Sep-13 11:51:55

Honk - I've emailed them so let's wait and see if I get a response smile

HonkHonk Mon 23-Sep-13 19:38:02

Oh, clever (productive!) you! Let me know if you hear. and tell nick knowles I love him

Try looking at nina Campbell as they use a lot of her wallpaper on DIY SOS. There was one I loved where they did 2 little girls rooms and I emailed them. One was nina Campbell butterflies and the other was a sanderson. I can't remember the name but it was lovely climbing flowering trees. If is seen it on the roll I wouldn't have liked it but it looked gorgeous on the wall. ££££ though!

This one?
The second one in the product list - NCF 3940-02

belledejour Mon 28-Oct-13 21:28:09

Could it be Cole & Son Hummingbirds?

Or Sanderson Swallows - very lovely too and on sale!
