Fresh for the new season and year ahead, Graham & Brown has unveiled this Oriental-inspired design as its hero wallpaper. It's bold move on from the soft metallics of 2018's magnolia pattern and 2017's geometric design.

'We have identified our Kabuki trend as a key design influence for 2019 and the Wallpaper and Colour of the Year 2019.' explains Paula Taylor, Colour & Trend Specialist.

The elegant design is sure to give walls the wow factor. Exotic bird prints and metallic finishes are both identified as key trends for 2019 by the in-house design team.

Paula goes on to say, 'With a rich ancient history, entwining spiritual meanings, Kabuki-inspired this glamourous paper and colour. Both transform traditional art into a modern style statement.’

Because feature walls are still very much a thing, Graham & Brown have identified a need for a co-ordinating paint. So, in conjunction with wallpaper of the year, there's a Colour of the Year 2019. Taken from the same palette, it will make decorating a whole lot easier.
