Habitat plus

From Habitat plus – wallpaper


Wallpaper has returned to our homes in a blaze of ultra-stylish designs, eye-catching textures, dimensional treatments, new materials and digital printing techniques

For those who grew up in the all-white walls of the 1990s and 2000s, wallpaper delivers the opportunity to create interiors that hum with vibrancy and personality. It’s a look that marries with the move towards more layered interiors with clusters of collectibles. Wallpaper has become a conversation piece.

For those who remember wallpapers from their childhood, those sometimes dull and overpowering styles have been replaced with wallpapers that are rich, colourful and interesting.

We started small, using wallpapers to create a feature wall. Now, we’re using wallpapers in whole rooms and houses, but also in unexpected ways – on furniture, bedheads, as art and more.

In this booklet, we share advice on how to choose wallpaper, the types available, and how to hang it. We also look at the key current trends: botanic prints, florals, metallic finishes, graphic prints, oversized designs and murals, the classics, fun looks and personalised art prints.

Happy wallpapering!
