Wallpaper trends - oversize

From Habitat plus – wallpaper

It's the ultimate feature wall. A wallpaper with an oversized print or a full-on mural will certainly make an impact in your home.

Going big and bold doesn't mean you'll end up with walls that scream at you – it might be an all-over cloud-scape, a pretty tonal botanic print like the image at bottom right, or a toile-style scene, like the one at right.

For more impact, choose a colourful oversized design or a mural using photographic imagery. There are beach scenes like below, huge flowers like left, forests, city skylines, mountains, tropical islands, swirling 3D shapes... pretty much anything you can think of.

Just for you

If you can’t find what you want in the wide range of the Resene Wallpaper Collection, or want something quite personal and one-of-a-kind, check out the Resene WallPrint service where you can create your own wallpaper from a photo or favourite print. You simply upload a photo, put in the dimensions of your wall and you'll receive numbered wallpaper strips cut to size. Try it out at

Top tip: Large patterns tend to work best on larger feature areas and uncluttered walls that are viewed at a distance. As you move closer to the design you can then appreciate the smaller details.
