Style We Can Adhere To

Wallpaper has triumphantly returned as a modern design trend, and there is an endless assortment of ideas to match everyone’s taste and sensibility. From heritage designs that recollect the cozy parlors and bedrooms of a bygone era, to classic florals and botanical patterns, and even riotously playful, graphic prints and bold images — rooms cloaked in vivid wallpaper are defining the current direction in interior design.

For the brave at heart, experts encourage a commingling of classic designs such as stripes or natural motifs with more striking ones such as ikats and Turkish Kilims, even in the same room. Scenic and mural wallpapers are highly popular, as are wallpapers that have texture. This may sound strange, but a textured print (or a flat print on a textured wall, for instance) lends a room more dimension, and with it, coziness and intimacy. These days, if you can envision it, you can print it on wallpaper to match your heart’s desire. Time will pass, but this trend will stick!
