THE LATEST PAINT AND WALLPAPER TRENDS
The stalwarts of any decorating scheme, start your search with a little insider knowledge to truly get the best out of the new paint and wallpaper trends. Here, MyJobQuote are predicting five next big trends for paint and wallpaper.
1. GO BIG, BOLD AND BRIGHT
Wallpaper has gone through varying periods of popularity, but the latest trends are focusing on using wallpaper more liberally, choosing more daring and bold prints for your schemes. From reprints of classic architectural designs to shockingly vibrant floral fiestas, wallpaper’s recent resurgence is not stopping anytime soon.
2. PILE ON THE TEXTURE
The natural look will always be full of imperfections, and that can be embraced with texture. The industrial aesthetic such as a concrete-like paint adds definition which can be interacted with through touch, offering a truly unique pattern in each application.
3. MAKE IT A MURAL
For a short time, simple murals, often in vinyl format could be purchased from the High Street. Now, designs have advanced to include full scale works of art that can be the highlight of a room, with the remaining walls complementing it with subtle, natural colours.
There’s a wealth of wonderfully bold wallcovering designs hitting the design world this season – whether single panel designs, vast wall size pictorial scenes or textural looking surfaces, any of them will add a whole extra dimension to your space.
4. WARM UP WITH NEUTRALS
For some time, grey has dominated many rooms with its various tones and versatility. However, we could see a return of warmer neutrals such as oatmeal and beige coming back, offering a warmer, more homely ambience then grey currently provides.
5. STEP INTO THE DARK SIDE
Dark colours used to be avoided as often this would be misinterpreted as making a room seem dark and dingy. However, with an eclectic use of space, well-placed lighting and shapes, deeper royal blues and luxurious emerald greens are making a comeback.
