Wallpaper has had its bad rap, but over recent years, dare I say the wallpaper industry has made a redemption! We are so excited seeing standard floral patterns transform to beautiful pieces of art enveloping the rooms we live in. With some incredible artists and designers collaborating on patterns, fabrics and colourways, the sky really is the limit!
It is so inspiring seeing the innovative trends that show off the potential that wallpaper has for interior spaces, so we thought we would share some of our favourite trends we think we will be seeing in 2021!
Despite its name, over recent years we have watched wallpaper be pushed to it’s limit and expand past its perceived limitations of just walls. This is a perfect example of innovation and a lends itself to being able to add to your theme without taking away from your beautiful furniture pieces that sit below.
‘A picture is worth a thousand words’… We are in awe of the range of murals available in the form of wallpaper. Murals portray a story, so pairing it with minimal furnishings and materials can create a truly captivating space within your home.
This technique is often done with dado rails, which have been a feature found within interior design for many years, and it’s very effective when you’re wanting to control the impact of the wallpaper. In saying that, playing with the height of the dado rail will give you even more control on how to balance the wallpaper with the rest of your space. Alternatively a custom bed head in a bedroom is the perfect way to give some relief to the your room.
The fact that we can replace pieces of art for a whole wall of art is so exciting. The unique and personal qualities hand painted wallpaper has makes it so sentimental to the space. Hand-painted wallpaper also opens the opportunity to customisation to perfectly suit your scheme.
Wallpaper in bathrooms
There is always a hesitation about wallpaper being in a bathroom… with water and humidity it seems like a risky move. As long as the wallpaper is suitable for wet spaces we say, go bold! Small powder rooms really opens up the opportunity to do something fun and can create a point of interest that doesn’t need to consume the theme of your whole home.
