Home decor trends come and go, but wall paper will be fashionable forever. Give your home a style upgrade with these pretty prints.
Sure, you could keep your walls painted boring beige (let's face it, it's always beige), but why not upgrade your home decor with some printed paper instead? We've been adorning our walls with paper since 150 BC - it's the trend that keeps coming back! That's not to say we haven't moved on since then. Where once there was a traditional set of prints to put on your walls, now there's more choice than you could shake a selfie stick at.
Let's start with the classics. You can't go wrong with a traditional floral print on your living room walls. It's like a daisy print dress on a warm summers day: it never goes out of style. Want to toughen up your style a bit? Go for pretty flowers printed on a dark blue or black background - it adds just the right amount of edge. What if your style is more Zooey Deschanel in 500 Days of Summer quirky? Go for a bold pop art print - this works particularly well in a bedroom. After all, where else do you most unleash your wild side?
You might be thinking there's a limit to where you can put paper on your walls, but you'd be wrong. Bathrooms are often neglected when it comes to home design, but they're also the room that's usually crying out the most for a bit of attention. This is where a geometric print design comes in. The bold shapes will add a bit of interest to an otherwise boring room, and with a good quality glue, you won't need to worry about it peeling. Whichever room you're papering, a clever eye for colour can really add a special effect. Room too small and gloomy? Go for a light-coloured paper with a slight sheen that reflects that light to give the appearance of more space. Want to amp up that cosy feeling? That's what rich, ruby tones were made for.
