Writings on the Wallpaper

Using wallpaper in the home is a simple way to make a big statement and we could wax lyrical on the benefits of using it as a versatile decor tool.  Inject serious personality into your interiors with walls covered in an eye-catching design, whether it be on one feature wall, the ceiling or an entire room. Read on for the wallpaper trends that have caught our eye in 2017.

Nature-Inspired Wallpaper.

Over-sized greenery, cloudy skies and textural grass cloth; nature isn’t going anywhere in 2017 when it comes to wallpaper.

The difference this time round is that the prints are oversized and colours are moodier, so think dark blues, greys, greens and maybe even black. Grasscloth wallpaper is another way to subtly introduce this trend into your home. Most grasscloth varieties are eco-friendly as they’re made from natural materials. This also means that no two rolls will look exactly the same.

Make botanicals work for your walls by balancing a strong print with simple furniture and clean lines. Have fun and don’t shy away from this bold, beautiful trend.

Faux-Finish Wallpaper.

From faux tiles to brick wall finishes, this trend is detailed and super realistic.

Tapping into the industrial trend for interiors, faux-finish designs include everything from colourful Moroccan tiles to weathered brick wall murals. Whether used in a guest bathroom or bedroom, faux wallpapers are a great way to have tiled, concrete or brick walls without having to spend a lot of money or committing to the look for a lifetime.

Digital Print Wallpaper.

With the introduction of digital printing, the options for designs are endless. We like to think of digitally printed wallpapers as an alternative to framed artwork on your walls.

The scale of the designs are oversized and in your face, there’s no room for shyness with this trend. Paint your skirting boards and door frames a contrasting, punchy colour for interiors that are brilliantly beautiful.
