Wallpaper gets a bad rap. With a tendency to conjure up images of your grandma’s old living room or a twee kid’s space it’s hardly the first design choice that springs to mind when reimagining an interior scheme.
Recently however, the humble wallpaper seems to be making a comeback. Led by design-savvy brands such as Murals Wallpaper in the UK, Sandberg in Sweden and Lemon in South Africa, these designs are closer to installing artwork than slapping some pattern on a wall. From floaty watercolour tones to striking marble and mosaic designs, digital printing has changed the game for contemporary wallpaper.
While the new class of wallpaper choices seems endless, we’re taking classical cues with a selection to suit a conceptual or relaxed aesthetic, sure to add style without overwhelming existing design choices.
