Commemorating Grand National winning horses like Red Rum and Mr. Frisk as well as jockeys like AP McCoy and Tommy Stack, this wallpaper brings home — literally — the spirit of the chase.
First run in 1839, the Grand National is one of England’s most prestigious annual sporting events. Held at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool, the grueling 4-mile, 3 1/2-furlong race includes 30 jumping efforts and features the biggest jump race purse in Europe, £1 million.
This year’s race takes place this Saturday, April 9. To celebrate one Liverpool home decor company, Murals Wallpaper, has unveiled a special silks-inspired collection of Grand National wallpaper murals available for purchase. (You can shop the full collection here.)
The sales pitch: “Ideal for a sports room, home gym or man-cave, these unique wallpaper prints will indulge your love of racing while adding a dash of sophistication to the home.”
Home gym? Maybe, maybe not. But we do think they’d look AMAZING in a tack room.
