"From traditional and classic to bold and graphic, wallpaper is back in a big way. We can't get enough of its room-transforming, style-defining powers." - HGTV

However, wallpaper is back in vogue with updated technologies and styles to make designing with wallpaper a contemporary simple element for anyone to add to their space. Wallpaper has gained a new reputation in the home and commercial spaces with designers from all over using wallpaper in their designs.
WALLPAPER IS BACK WITH NEW PATTERNS
Years ago when designing with wallpaper, there were fewer choices in colour, pattern, and texture. Today, there is an endless range of on trend wallpaper patterns available from updated contemporary damask patterns, geometric patterns, and faux finishes.
Traditional patterns have been given a fresh look with the addition of texture, layering, and metallic details to create an incredibly rich, luxurious feel. There are also more options available that are less literal and theme based than wallpapers of the past.
New geometric patterns add an even more contemporary vibe while creating stand out feature walls with a high impact. With simpler and cleaner silhouettes they work well alongside paint or with complementary plain textural wallpapers.
Faux finishes have also modernized wallpaper with the ability to add the realistic look of a three dimensional texture to a two dimensional surface.
WALLPAPER IS BACK WITH MORE SOPHISTICATED COLOURS
The sophisticated and richer wallpaper colours that are now offered allow for a more dynamic and stimulating colour story within your spaces. This diverse range of colours helps you achieve precisely the aesthetic you are after.
An artistic sensibility is also added to wallpaper with wallpapers that have a hand painted quality or digital wallpaper murals consisting of blown up photographs. This style of wallpaper also takes the place of artwork in a space and creates a large scale gallery appearance.
Metallic light reflecting details also add an entrancing effect to your wallpaper and entire space. They are a largely popular 2014 wallpaper trend that will help you create a luminescent contemporary space.
WALLPAPER IS BACK WITH IMPROVED TECHNOLOGY FOR EASY INSTALLATION AND REMOVAL
Not only are your options broadened aesthetically, now new technological advancements have made the entire process from production, to installation, to removal much easier. Paste the wall wallpapers allow you to apply paste directly to the wall just like paint and then apply the wallpaper to the wall directly from the roll. When you need an update there is no more mess or tools required. Just peel one corner and the panel comes down entirely! Wallpaper is being used in more innovative and sophisticated ways than they were in the past and are a great feature for creating an inspired, intriguing space.
