New Wallpaper and Inspiration for 2023
Maybe you remember walking into a kitchen 30 years ago and seeing bouquets of daisies patterned all around you. Maybe it was a flock of geese flying around the room in perfect formation. Or maybe it was just a wallpaper trim of roses instead of molding around the highest reach of the wall…
If you remember that, you remember “Grandma’s” wallpaper.
NOW, fast forward three decades. After ALL those associations with Crockpot roast beef stewed between four flower-clad walls, wallpaper is BACK and actually trending!
Of course, you AREN’T going to see the same patterns this time around! Thank goodness…
Wallpaper today is transforming rooms with vogue colors, impactful patterns and alluring textures…the creativity doesn’t stop with the newest botanical inspirations, either, but with 3D experiences you can brush up against, let your eyes sink into, and fall in love with.
Where can you use wallpaper?
Wallpaper has seen a HUGE shift in design, style, and even applications…today, enjoy textured varieties and a whole kaleidoscope of colors and larger-than-life prints you can actually make art with.
The ENORMOUS varieties of wallpaper also mean you can use it in more spaces than ever. In fact, you can use it in every space!
Consider a daring color expression or textural experience in:
- The bathroom
- The bedroom
- Powder rooms
- The dining room
- The kitchen
- The home office (better than staring at flat, greige walls when you’re stuck on something, don’t you think?)
Wallpaper is having its elegant moments now, too, which is why its use in dining rooms and areas you entertain in is your new to go BOLD.
Minimalism and gray-everything are FINALLY phasing out…you can inject more COLOR and vibrance and experiential design into your home with something as simply and satisfying as WALLPAPER…in any space!!
