Competition: Win £250 to spend at Surface View

OCTOBER 25, 2014

Win £250 to spend at Surface View - choose an image from Surface View’s extensive archive to make into a mural, a print, ceramic tiles, even a lampshade. Sometimes wallpaper just doesn’t cut it. Certain rooms need something special – perhaps a wall covered with an enlarged poster to add colour to a child’s room, or lined with a giant photograph of trees to turn the living room into a leafy bower. Which is where Surface View comes in...

Over the years, its owner Michael Ayerst has collected and curated images from many different sources. Some have been retrieved from dusty attics or museum basements – others found among the pages of vintage manuscripts. Many are from well-known designers including Ella Doran and Hemingway Design, or from the V&A and the British Library, among other institutions.

One shortcut to help you choose from their rich archive is Surface View’s Edits Collection. This newly introduced series features new home decor products, including an exclusive range of cushions and wall charts, plus a limited selection of framed matt art prints. Go to to discover the enormous number and variety of images available, such as this County of London mural (above). Choose your image and then select your print medium, from canvases to murals, wall hangings to window films. Alternatively, go for the ready-made option. The only trouble will be knowing where to stop.

What you could win

One of two £250 vouchers to spend at Surface View. Choose from their new Edits Collection and hundreds of other designs, which can be printed as a mural, on tiles, canvas or on a birch ply box. You can even get an image printed onto a blind, window film, or Formica.
