Up until a few years ago, the word ‘wallpaper’ in the design community brought about quiet shudders and images of the hackneyed 1990’s hunter green, burgundy and navy color schemes that haunted every home and hotel for a good 15 years. But, like every other trend in design or fashion, it comes back alive and well and in graphic new shapes, shades and prints. From damask to grass cloth, wallpaper is once again a fabulous alternative to paint and lends depth, detail and character to any room, any size. Take a gander at some of the latest ways to turn your walls from two-dimensional to ‘I have to touch!’ sensational.
Remember just this: when it comes to making a design statement, say it loud, or don’t say it at all! True style is about taking risks and raising eyebrows, so fly outside your comfort zone and wake up your walls!
