This year is all about BOLD. That’s why it should be no surprise to see the giant resurgence of wallpaper in 2014’s interior design trends. Wallpaper is hot and here to stay. From vibrant vintage-style graphics to bold florals to opulent foil textures, the writing is on the wall. Here are some of our favorite takes on the wallpaper trend:

“Wallpaper is no longer your bog standard printed flowers,” says Resene colour consultant Sarah Gregory. “Thanks to digital technology, we now have animal skins, vintage plates (from the Essentially Yours range) and lace stripes (Essentially Yours), among other designs, as well as gorgeous prints like Audrey Hepburn repeats (Black & White III range).” – (from Resene)

“Designs, styles and colours are varied, but if there’s one underlying theme, it’s nostalgia. Many of the new wallpapers take their inspiration from past eras – the ‘30s, ‘50s, ‘70s and ‘80s. But there is nothing old-fashioned about the new collections. Modern colours, some with metallic shimmers, offer a fresh spin on old.
“The big floral patterns, when they first came out, were bright florals against a light background,” says Sarah. “Now they are more soothing, something you could have on all four walls rather than just the one – and that is something we are seeing a lot of.”” – (from Resene)

Metallic Foil Wallpaper

What’s exciting about metallics? Their luxe, ever-changing interplay with light. Foil papers such as Calico’s gorgeous marbled metallics subtly change hues with the movement of the sun. Here’s a beautiful video on the making of these extraordinary papers:

Our method embodies years of research in the various disciplines in paper marbling, which have spanned the globe. The arts of Suminagashi and Ebru, emanating from Japan and Turkey respectively centuries ago, are both evident in our collection. However, it is our expansion of these practices that makes Calico Wallpapers truly unique. By drawing from each of these forms we have created something entirely different.” – Calico Wallpaper

Texture is also playing a lead role in 2014 design trends, particularly with fabrics and faux wood or brick panels. Textured wallpaper brings refreshing splendor and decadence to any room. This tactile choice ranges widely from neutral to striking, bringing nature back into the home.

“There are lots of lovely textures,” says Sarah, “many with a velvety touch, or a contrast of shiny surfaces with matt areas to give additional dimension to a wall.”
Flock wallpaper has a new look too, with strong contemporary patterns in sophisticated colours. No longer just the domain of florals and damasks, we’re seeing flock wallpapers with bold geometric patterns and circles in up-to-the-minutes colours, such as teal, baby blue and pinot noir burgundy. A softer approach may see foamed wallpaper inlaid with interlocking rectangles in various sizes and tones of pearl lustre and white – or the same pattern in an elegant matt black. “ – (from Resene)
