Want to make in impact in your home? The newest way to make a statement is with bold wallpaper. The new season trends will help to add some drama and a touch of glamour to your decor, so be inspired to make over your rooms with one of these modern wallpaper designs.

From chic florals, to retro wallpaper prints and bold graphics, there are so many ways to pack a punch with your interior design this year. So whether you’re aspiring to hotel chic in a city apartment, or country calm in a pretty cottage, you can find your new decor inspiration here.

One of the biggest trends of this season is to mix dark drama with some pretty botanical touches. Black wallpaper with a floral or nature-inspired theme will look great teamed with lime green accessories, adding a modern touch to an elegant room. You can create a similar look with one feature wall, opting for a dark grey hue, which will complement an otherwise muted colour scheme.

For something completely different but just as stylish, a white room with a snowy backdrop is still on trend. Printed wallpaper with a forest theme, white or grey sofas and faux fur rugs and throws will set the perfect winter scene that looks warm and inviting all year round.

Use clever wallpaper designs to create the illusion of expensive but stylish exposed brick or woodwork. Or choose wallpaper that is printed with a black and white bookcase, a world map or woodland scene.

Find the right wallpaper and you can create your own work of art in any room. Section off different wallpapers to create a stylish feature wall, or wallpaper a canvas to create a striking focal point, without committing to a permanent feature.
