Bring some colour into your home with a striking wallpaper design. Whether you have a traditional or contemporary styled home there is always some space for that hint of colour. Hits of colour in a design can really help bring the whole room together, making it feel cohesive and relaxed. Colour can be used to highlight certain areas making them feel larger or smaller depending on the purpose. A trend happening this year is to place colourful wallpaper on your ceiling whilst leaving your walls and floor neutral. This effect creates drama and really helps to bring a large space in and make it feel more homely and comfortable. Mineheart’s Colour Block Paneling by Young and Battaglia has a striking statement stripe of colour that would be the perfect way to introduce colour into your home using a contemporary design.
Pattern and Contemporary Floral
To add some drama and excitement in your home, then look no further than a playful, patterned wallpaper print. A busy pattern can be calmed by a neutral colour and this combination would work well in an older style property. The Delft Baroque wallpaper by Mineheart from www.thelongeststay.com takes a traditional pattern in beige and highlights it with a light, white background. The overall effect is a charming, refined print that would introduce some interest and confidence to a room. If you are looking for a bolder statement, then a contemporary floral pattern could be for you. Mockbee & Co’s Mandala print is a beautiful example of symmetry, nature and fresh colours combined. This exquisite print would lift any space.
If you want the high-end look but don’t have the time or money to install it then you can use some luxury, illusion wallpaper. There is plenty around now, from bookshelves to paneling to super-chic marble effects. Natural stone and wood have been photographed and printed so expertly that the effect is wonderfully realistic. Piet Hein Eek has designed some beautiful marble wallpaper for NLXL and this would be a dramatic addition to your home. The black marble would be perfect for a dramatic bedroom and the white is just subtle enough for a hint of luxury in any living space.
