A passion for pattern

This season it’s all about big, bold patterns when it comes to wallpaper. Our advice? Take a deep breath, be brave, and pic whichever pattern pulls on your heartstrings. Base your room design around your chosen wallpaper and the end result is bound to impress! This month we’re rounding up the latest trends in wall coverings – geometrics, modern botanicals and the new exotics.

Gorgeous geometrics

Why not capture two trends in one with a geometric wallpaper featuring metallic elements? Zoffany’s ‘Oblique’ range is one of our favourites at the moment, with its lovely bronze zig zag design available in a range of colourways. ‘Seizo’ is another stunning choice with a fretwork pattern which would work perfectly in a cloakroom teamed with brass or bronze fittings. The gold on green combo particularly gets our vote.


Modern botanicals

Floral wallpapers are eternally popular and for very good reason. But the key to updating your home when it comes to botanical designs is to go for bold, large scale patterns. New from Harlequin is a collection called Zapara which features outsize leaf illustrations in vibrant colours. ‘Kelapa’ has a wonderfully tropical vibe and would work well with non-patterned sofas and pared-back accessories.

Cole and Son’s ‘Palm Jungle’ design is another bold wallpaper to consider. It features a dramatic fern print available in a huge variety of colourways. Emerald green on black would be our choice for a dramatic dining room look.


The new exotics



The other big trend this season is exotic prints featuring animals. Cole & Son’s ‘Leopard Walk’ really stands out and would look great teamed with crisp neutrals to create an ‘old meets new’ effect. We also love Clarke & Clarke’s new ‘Animalia’ collection in which giraffes, tigers and exotic birds take centre stage.

We have more than 6,000 wallpapers to choose from in the showroom so do pop in and take a look. We’re based just two miles outside Stamford in a pretty converted dairy in Uffington. We’d love to see you and help you choose your dream wallpaper!
