    The classic floral wallpaper is back with a new spin. Last year saw a surge in bold floral and nature-inspired looks. It is no surprise that everyone’s minds have turned that way during the last six months.

    3. Retro

    You might have thought you’d left those ’70s designs behind with your childhood. But thanks to the on-going trend for all things retro, retro wallpaper has become a new go-to for homes hoping to make a statement.

    4. Geometric

    Sharp geometric style wallpaper is still making a statement on the walls of Instagram. Many people have even taken to recreate the look on a budget with tape and paint.

    Morning lovelies. This is what the bedroom ‘will’ look like when I get return from the nursery run. It’s all a mad rush in the mornings to get them packed off for their day ahead of fun and play! I have lots of uniform names to put on, putting eBay items online and pumpkin painting to do today. Hopefully we will get to have our Halloween dinner party🤞🏻, not so sure though as Boris has some news for us from Monday! If not then it will just make me happy to be seasonally decorated at home and have a little party with the kids, hubby even promised to get dressed up this year if he didn’t have to go out trick or treating 😆🎃👻💀🧛‍♂️. Have a great day everyone.

    7. Abstract

    Abstract wallpaper is perfect for creating an on-trend mural at home. It has racked up 3,348 hashtags on Instagram, and we can see if racking up quite a few more this year.

    8. Scenic

    Whether it is decorating a nursery or a dining room, a scenic wallpaper will take a home from ordinary to extraordinary. However, we would recommend only using it as a feature wall, rather than covering the whole room.
