Wallpaper Is Back: 4 Trends to Personalize Your Space

Over the years, wallpaper has gone through a multitude of trends, reflecting the ever-changing tastes and preferences of homeowners: from floral patterns and intricate geometric shapes, to neutral, minimalist designs.

In the early 2000s, when minimalist designs and painted accent walls were all that, wallpaper took a back seat in most design choices. But in recent years wallpaper has seen a resurgence, reclaiming its status as a stylish design element. In fact, this year has seen a fresh wave of wallpaper trends that blend contemporary aesthetics with a touch of nostalgia.

Here are some of the trends that are standing out in 2023.

Nature-Inspired Prints

Bringing the outdoors inside is a prevailing trend in 2023, as it has been in recent years. Wallpaper designs inspired by nature such as forest landscapes, modern floral patterns, and tropical prints add a sense of serenity, organic beauty, and a touch of escapism to any space.

Abstract Geometric Patterns

Geometric designs are historically a popular choice, but now with a modern twist. You can introduce more energy and playfulness to your interiors with abstract patterns featuring bold, asymmetric shapes and contrasting colors.

Textured Effects

Wallpapers with texture and three-dimensional effects are gaining traction in 2023. Embossed patterns, faux brick or stone finishes, and metallic accents create depth and visual appeal. These textured wallpapers bring a luxurious touch to any room and provide a captivating backdrop for furniture and decor.

Sustainable Choices

As environmental consciousness grows, sustainable wallpaper options have become increasingly popular. Many wallpaper brands are now embracing sustainable practices, offering a wide range of environmentally friendly choices without compromising on style or quality. These are often being made with natural or recycled materials, and organic, water-based pigments that are free of PVC.
