While the décor of previous years was simple and austere, we’re seeing a more fun and glamorous approach in 2019. Bold prints, vibrant colours and maximalism are trending. And with the focus on mixing pattern and texture, wallpaper is everywhere in exciting new designs and patterns. Wallpaper is the perfect way to take a feature wall to the next level, or add a dramatic, large-scale patten to your space.
Here’s our pick of the best new designs to instantly transform your home:
1. Floral wallpaper
Floral wallpaper is everywhere at the moment, especially large-scale prints that add real impact to a room. For a touch of gothic drama, go for stunning dark florals from stores like Ashley Woodson Bailey. Or make a statement with vivid Frida Kahlo style botanicals offset against a dark background.
Find these decorative designs from MuralsWallpaper.
2. Jewel tones
Colour has the power to transform the mood of your home, and this season’s deep, rich shades will evoke a luxurious or romantic feel. Trending for 2019 are emeralds and aquas with oriental patterns like this beautiful design from Graham & Brown.
Metallics have been around for a while, and they’re a great way to make your room feel glamorous without the big spend. Rather than all-out Hollywood shimmer, today’s metallics are more textured and subtle, and mixed with neutrals or pastel shades for a sophisticated look. John Lewis has a great range of metallic wallpaper, available online.
4. Natural or unfinished textures
Want to make an impact with the unexpected? Reflecting the trend for all things textured in 2019, wallpaper that emulates natural materials is increasingly popular. Think wood effect, or faux marble, stone or granite. The organic lines and textures will breathe new life into a space. Take a look at the range from Jane Clayton & Co for more inspiration.
5. Geometric wallpaper
With a symmetry that’s soothing to the eye, geometric shapes are a simple way to uplift your room. For a funky modern edge, think diamonds, triangles, or hexagons. Geometric wallpaper needn’t be bold, either. It works well in understated lines like this simple design from Lime Lace, ideal for creating harmony in a bedroom or living area.
6. Artistic wallpaper
Quirky artistic wallpaper can make your home as unique as you are, with a wide range of themes and colours to suit any taste. And if you’re looking for independent and bespoke wallpaper suppliers, you’re spoilt for choice online. Check out Aimee Wilder’s website for some fun and vibrant designs.
