UPDATE: Cath Kidston Wallpaper – The Thrifty Version

Miss Thrifty6 August 14, 2009

cath-kidston-wallpaper Back in March I wrote about the joys of Cath Kidston wallpaper – and how places such as Focus DIY sell rolls of paper that are “very similar” to the original versions, but a lot cheaper (taps nose conspiratorially).

It is one of the most popular posts on this blog – second only to the Make Do And Mend post, in fact – so having read an e-mail from Miss Thrifty reader Claire, I feel duty-bound to share her news in full:

Thank you so much for this top tip. I was after the same Cath Kidston wallpaper and just couldn’t justify the cost. I went into Focus DIY – who are now discontinuing the Millie wallpaper and selling it off for £5 a roll. What a bargain!!!

Thanks Claire!

By the way dear reader, if you are a visitor from the future and you are stamping your foot because you are too late for this bargain, take heart. You can still buy these wallpapers online, for £13.99 a roll, from wallpaperdirect.

UPDATE: I don’t know if you noticed, but this is a post from 2009. (Yikes – where did the time go?) A Miss Thrifty reader, Tania, got in touch to let me know that Wallpaper Direct no longer stocks the range of lookylike wallpapers. So it was time for a 2012 version of this post, with up-to-date stockist information. Click here to see all the latest Cath Kidston lookalike wallpapers, from as little as £8.99 a roll. Miss Thrifty at your service…

I came across your site while looking for information about wallpaper designs by Charles Voysey, a leader in wallpaper design from the Arts & Craft movement. Very interesting sight, I shall visit again.
