Love it or hate it, wallpaper is a design trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. From the bedroom to the powder room and beyond, wallpaper is the perfect way to add a pop of color and style to your home. It is, very often, the cure for the common wall, which is why it remains popular. Luckily, gone are the days of stale floral prints and dusty hues.
Contemporary wallpaper offers designs from all ends of the spectrum. Whether you want an elegant and modern look, or you want something unique and art deco, there’s a print waiting for you. Here are some of our favorite wallpaper trends for 2018.
2018 Wallpaper Trends for Your Inspiration
Modern, Hand-Printed Appeal
Some of the most stunning prints out there feature unique artwork that can actually double as an art piece in your home. These signature pieces often come at a bit of a higher price tag, but when something likens it to art in your home, it might just be worth it. There is also a larger variety of styles when it comes to hand-printed wallpaper. Artisans create it to mirror their design styles and you, as a consumer, can match it to your needs – whatever those may be.
We’ll admit that faux wall finishes are a bit dated and out of style lately, but faux-textured prints are definitely in. How do they differ? To put it simply, steer clear of the faux tiles and go towards something like a faux concrete print. It adds a layer of depth and warmth to a room without that obvious “faux” look. Plus, it allows for a little more leeway when it comes to your design aesthetic. If you want something ultra-modern, this is a trend you want to check out.
Embellished Art Deco Designs
Retro-lovers will rejoice for this one! One of our favorite looks for petite powder rooms or a pop of intrigue is a unique art-deco pattern. With just a hint of sparkle and shine, a pop of color, and a little depth, they add a world of wonder to any room. Want a designer pro-tip? Add some twinkle lights to your room for an added touch of glamor.
Large-Scale Floral Scenes
When you think of floral wallpaper, you might initially have flashbacks to your grandmother’s dated decor. Luckily, floral designs have vastly improved since then. Consider adding color and style to your room with an oversized floral print. Rather than utilizing petite pastel flowers, opt for something more bold and beautiful. It’s a guaranteed stunner.
Wallpaper Continues to Evolve
The beautiful part about wallpaper and interior design is that the two continue to evolve side-by-side. As design styles change, so do wallpaper styles, so you can always find something new to complement your home. And, while it will always appeal to some designers and homeowners more than others, there’s no doubt that it’s a trend that’s here to stay.
