Thanks to new technology and a focus on fresh, creative applications, wallpaper has become the Swiss Army Knife of the decor world. It can be tailored to provide a quick and easy update to any space – from a bland guest loo to outdated kitchen surfaces.
There are wallpaper manufacturers that allow you to design your own motif. Or choose from a range of applications to suit your taste (and budget).
X-factor: Add exotic appeal to your home with oversized botanical motifs. Sculptural delicious monster and island-style hibiscus and orchid designs will transform your home into an urban jungle, while reinvented floral designs are stylish and on trend.
Get the look: Paint a picture of elegance by combining still-life-inspired botanicals with opulent velvet and chenille, to create an avant-garde, Parisian-style setting. Or opt for clean-lined, modern furniture with a vintage botanical design as a backdrop.
Expect bold flower and leaf designs in a palette of forest greens, cayenne and chartreuse, juxtaposed by a spectrum of dark, moody hues.
Ornate, repetitive floral motifs and large-scale fresco-style designs are equally appealing as focal wall applications.
Supersized watercolour prints of succulents and unexpected leaf designs present a more organic option.
Turn up the heat with fun tropical-fruit-inspired designs that show you don’t take life too seriously.
An industrial-style apartment reveals its softer side with an oversized greyscale floral mural.
