News A Look At The Top Wallpaper Trends 20th July 2017/ By:Roy/ No Comments Wallpaper seems to be experiencing something of a resurgence in home decor, and with so many quirky and beautiful designs to choose from, it’s little wonder that it’s gaining popularity. Gulf New recently highlighted some of the top wallpaper trends to emerge this year in its Design Diary, with everything from Amazonian prints to metallic designs making the list. Tropical prints are particularly popular at the moment, with the newspaper noting that this is further evidenced in Pantone’s colour of the year, which is green. One of the keys to getting this look right is to get a good contrast between a vibrant foreground print and paler backdrop. Another wallpaper trend to watch is that of ink and watercolour prints. According to the newspaper they “pack a strong design punch”, which makes them a great choice if you’re looking to make a statement on an accent wall. Minerals and metals were also highlighted as a wallpaper design trend, with metallic patterns a great way to add some opulence to an interior. If you’d rather go down the minerals route, check out the stunning crystal wallpapers showcased by the Metro recently. You should also be looking to use patterns with depth, according to Gulf News. “If it’s a graphic print or image that you’re after, invest in designs that project distinct depth,” the newspaper stated. Of course, hanging wallpaper can be a challenge and that’s only amplified if it’s got a distinct pattern that needs to be precisely matched. Hire painters and decorators in Cardiff to make sure you get a professional look that you’ll be happy to show off.
