We are currently undergoing an attic conversion and so I’ve been searching the internet for inspirational wallpaper, something that really jumps out at me. The problem I have, is that I’m drawn to so many different styles, and like so many different looks, that lots of it jumps out at me and I find it hard to narrow down my choices.
As such, I have a wealth of images and products stored up and thought they’d I could make good use of them here. I’ve pulled together some of my favourite prints and designs that would look stunning adorning your summer walls. Of course wallpaper lasts much longer than one season, so be sure you can live with it in the Winter too, but these styles are at the forefront of current trends and you won’t tire of them yet.
Dip Dye or Ombre:
There’s plenty of both styles, dip dye and ombre designs are everywhere it seems and still very popular. I’ve chosen this Plum Pastel Ombre wallpaper from DigitexHome (£40 per roll) to show how stunningly simple yes everso striking a print like this can be. I also think it has a freshness, particularly in this colourway, that would lift any room.
We’ve written before on the OakFurnitureland blog on how to bring the jungle look into your home, and this design, Jungle print wallpaper by Mika Rose from Graduate Collection at £125 per roll, is an easy way to achieve that. Admittedly it’s a fair investment, but I’m sure you’ll agree a roll on a statement wall would look incredible.
The trend for natural brick and wood style wallpapers has been around for a long time now and really needed a refresh. There are some innovative, updated prints coming along for A/W (more about that another time) but for now this Dip Dye Wooden Boards in Lemon from Decor Wallpaper at £40 per roll fits the bill. A lovely, summery take on a typically wintery look.
I couldn’t not include one of my favourites from the classic Farrow and Ball collection, this one is called. Jasmine and comes in several different colourways if Jade isn’t for you. A great idea to frame some more expensive wallpapers if you can’t afford more than one roll.
Fruits and Palms:
Moving on a little from the Jungle print trend, this striking Sophie Conran Coconut Grove Midnight design from Arthouse, has been very well received. At £48 it’s not too expensive either and works well with the sultry, inky blues that are still present and continue to be in the A/W 15 trends.
What do you think of this summery selection? Would you paste any of these prints onto your walls?
