For anyone born after 1960, the mention of wallpaper most likely brings to mind images of clashing colours and terrifyingly busy prints. Thankfully, these days instead of a headache on a wall, you can easily find a pattern or style to suit you.
Whether you’re looking for something tastefully arty, moody yet stylish, feminine and flirty or are just not sure, this guide to choosing modern designer wallpaper will provide you with inspiration to bring your sleeping space into the 21st Century.
Tropical Wallpaper Prints for Feature Walls
Although brown on orange on yellow flowers are certainly a thing of the past, don’t be afraid of making a bold statement with your wall décor. Colourful prints like the Graham & Brown wallpaper featured above could be overwhelming plastered throughout an entire room. Yet a feature wall in this tropical motif will do a beautiful job of creating an on-trend exotic feel without the need for several Malibu and cokes.
Want to bring the outside in more subtly? Choose wallpaper with natural scenery in a muted colour scheme.
Gothic Wallpaper for a Deeper Palette
If you don’t fancy being loud and proud, give into your moody side and opt for darker motifs in deeper tones for an edgy yet romantic look.
Autumn 2018 is all about oversized florals, ideally on a duskier background. We love large flower prints set on a charcoal canvas or – even more dramatic – quirky skulls on black.
On Trend Patterns with Modern Floral Wallpaper
All flowers do not have to be sullen and if you are more inclined towards lighter, airier spaces you can still incorporate pretty blossoms into your bedroom theme. These can be subtle designs either in colours similar to their background or smaller more delicate motifs. Alternatively, you can choose brighter tones that inject warmth and fun into your surroundings.
Subtle Luxury Wallpaper Looks
For those looking for something more clean-cut and sophisticated, there are also many non-nature related looks. Among our favourites are marble styles; is there anything more expensive-looking and chic? We are also huge fans of intricate patterns with foil detail and you can find stunning examples of this in our Crown wallpaper range too.
In 2018, using wallpaper has returned as a viable feature for your interior design. Forget what your Grandma’s lounge looked like and get on board with the gorgeous styles and textures that are now on offer. After all, these days there really is something for everyone from dark and gothic to light and bright and everything in between.
