Wallpaper Ideas for your Home
In recent years, decorators and designers have started experimenting with wallpaper’s look and feel in many shapes and forms. From sensory textures and geometric patterns to old school shabby chic floral revivals and monochrome madness – the options are endless. You can literally choose anything you like and have it printed as wallpaper these days. We share our favourite wallpaper ideas for your home.
Florals and Geometrics
Florals are still huge this year. Dark, gothic florals, in particular, have made quite an impression on the design world. Floral-type prints work well in opulent dining rooms and brighter florals have been spotted globally in trendy and vibrant kitchens.
Kirsty Mole, Décor Manager at B&Q, says ‘Geometric prints give instant art deco glamour to bedrooms, living rooms and hallways. What’s more, we see this trend taking off even among renters as many styles come using “paste the wall” technology. This nifty product saves up to 30 per cent of the time traditionally required to hang wallpaper, requires no pasting table and simply peels off when you fancy a change or are moving out.’
Wallpaper prints in dark green foliage is still a top trend to look out for. It works great in bathrooms and surprisingly well in studies surrounded by elegant leather furniture and sharp metals. Large, illustrative leaves with dark outlines are our favourite at the moment.
Jungle mural wallpapers are an elegant way to ignite nostalgia for long-forgotten summers. These illustration-type wallpapers add warmth to any area and a way to immerse yourself into a classic space that you can enjoy for years to come.
Tapestry-inspired designs are a perfect focal point for a room. According to wallpaper gurus Cole & Son’s creative director Carley Bean tapestry-like wallpapers are often inspired by idyllic landscapes, they bring the beautiful colours of the outdoors inside of the home. Its muted palette of greens, blues and neutrals can provide the colour inspiration and texture of the entire room.
Black and white is a classic combination to create depth and expansion. From its sophisticated feel and minimalist undertones, monochrome–inspired rooms are always a delight for the eye. Monochrome designs allow you to play around with abstract designs and busy patterns.
Bright flashes of colour paired with monochromatic wallpapers add the oomph to bring your room together.
Ceilings don’t need to be boring at all. Home decorators are using “the fifth wall” as their canvas in homes all over the world. Making use of the ceiling can transform your living space, whether you choose minimalist designs or bold designs.
