Ashley's on a roll

Children love cars almost as much as adults do, albeit in toy format, but why not help develop their passion even more with this funky racing car wallpaper? It is bright and colourful and from the top high-street design brand Laura Ashley. The wallpaper costs about Dh65 a roll and can be found online at www.lauraashley.com or at the Laura Ashley store in Dubai Festival City.

There's a Lambo in my living room

Fast supercars are stylish but rarely translate into a home setting - until www.muralswallpaper.co.uk came along. Now you can have a massive Ferrari, Lambo or Mustang muscle car - among other options - on your living room wall. These prints are crisp, clean and impossibly cool. They cost between Dh140 and Dh220 per square metre and can be purchased from the website.

Mellow yellow cabs on the wall

New York's yellow cabs are almost as iconic as its landmarks but when you've got both in a photograph, it's almost the perfect urban street scene. No wonder a snap of the Big Apple is so popular in homes all over the world. The quality and finish of this self-adhesive wallpaper make it a stylish way to spruce up your living room. Priced at about Dh500, the murals are available from www.eazywallz.com.
