Wallpaper trends - nature

From Habitat plus – wallpaper

From sweetly pretty to rampantly tropical, leaves and flowers are growing up our walls.

Habitat plus
As a general rule, the larger the design, the less you should use it. Reserve large, bright designs for feature walls

There are meticulous designs that look like they have been lifted from the pages of a Victorian era plant catalogue, painterly flowers with a whimsical look, lush sprays of palm fronds, fossilised leaves and decadent overblown flowers.

All have one thing in common – nature. Botanical motifs have always been popular in wallpaper design as we seek to surround ourselves with stress-releasing natural elements. This season there's a rich array of styles, colours and scale with on-trend looks including tropical hot-house plants and fullsome floral.

Did you know... that today’s papers are moisture resistant and tough, coping with the varied and challenging conditions of bathrooms and kitchens?
