Wonderful wallpaper - the renaissance

23rd November 2016

It wasn't that long ago when wallpaper was generally looked down upon. While there were gorgeous homes with jaw dropping papered walls, wallpaper was viewed as passé, old and antiquated. It reminded us of the tired and overly frilly prints of our great grandmother's era.

However, today we are fortunate to have so many wonderful wallpaper options at our finger tips. These papers are easier to apply, easier to remove and are available in myriads of styles and prints.

It’s not surprising that many of us are embracing this design trend. After all, a striking statement wall is all it takes to transform an otherwise ordinary room from drab to fab.

Working in almost any location, feature walls are perfect for adding personality and excitement to large living spaces where you want to make a statement, or by emphasising small spaces that need to impress without overpowering.

Large, graphic patterns are bang on trend and will add depth to a large room, a dark striking patterned paper will make a room that feels too big instantly cosier, or adorn an orangery with large floral patterns to bring the outside in. The choice is yours!

Wallpaper also offers a tremendous selection of beautiful finishes. Pearl, glitter, raised inks, suede and embossed –to name but a few – are all readily available, allowing you to create the perfect space and indulge in a lavish design.

Whether you're serious, silly, modern or traditional there's a paper for you. From youthful whimsy to sophisticated elegance wallpaper can be used to create a designer look in any space.
