WALLPAPER TRENDS TO GET HUNG UP ON
Continuing our Autumn trends series, it’s timely that it’s International Wallpaper Week.
We were really excited at some of the wallpaper samples on show during our recent visit to the London-based Interiors Exhibition Decorex. We especially loved the excellent Azure Blue papers we saw on some of the stands and were particularly drawn to various ranges featuring watercolour-style designs brushed onto neutral backgrounds.
Zoffany and Ian Sanderson were showing some appealing examples, whilst for those lucky enough to be able to splash out, the high-end Philip Jeffries range was stunning too.
Sarah is now looking forward to incorporating the best of these in current projects.
Top Tip: Get the look whilst saving on the budget. Be creative and use sparingly as a feature wall – alternatively (and we love this idea) hang in panels or frames to create your own bespoke piece of artwork.
Another Autumn trend we picked up on (see our last blog) was the Scandi-inspired colour palate of greys and stones. Ever-classic and always relaxing and easy on the eye, these neutral bases provide the perfect backdrop for most room schemes, whether your taste is classic or contemporary – or for those who like a bright burst of colour, these shades also work well with bold brights used as accents.
Our own website www.nielsenhouse.co.uk has a great selection of wallpapers, with many of the options also available in grey. Check out the Elitis native range here http://www.nielsenhouse.co.uk/shop/wallpaper/elitis-natives-wallpaper/ and you will find shades of grey in this life-like animal hide texture and tone wallpaper. The added bonus is that it is hard wearing and enormously practical as it comes in a washable vinyl.
Another luxury washable vinyl from Elitis is the Glass range, an embossed undulating square mosaic texture giving real depth.
We are always impressed with Altfield’s ability to provide great textured finishes. We offer plenty of choice but amongst the options on our website, have a look at their Innovations Bellgrade Wallcovering which comes in 5 cool colours, glacier, mocha, honey, alabaster and pearl.
Mia from Altfield is also a super paper and works well as a feature wall where texture can add interest on an otherwise plain scheme.
Phillp Jeffries’ work here references Autumnal skies and evokes a sense of the great outdoors
This blue and white wallpaper seen at Decorex would work well as a feature panel
