Wallpaper Trends For 2015

We know that wallpaper is here to stay! Wallpaper is making a big statement in the way we decorate our homes and businesses.

Today’s wallpapers are a work of art. They are made to the finest quality and have the most amazing designs. That’s why we believe wallpaper is here to stay.

It’s the easiest way to change the vibe of a room or add atmosphere. Paint just can’t do what wallpaper can do.

Below we have found some resources that talk about today’s wallpaper trends and what’s hot for 2015.


The latest trends in wallpaper and what to look for in 2014-2015 to create an on trend space.

Many of this season’s wallpaper designs are taking cues from past eras while adding new twists to create highly versatile and contemporary looks. Wallpapers with metallic sheens, floral and geometric prints, texture, and faux finishes are seen all over today and will help you create the trendy wallpaper appearance you desire for your home. The latest trends in wallpaper also feature wallpaper used in a number of unique applications such as on the ceiling or as accents on furniture to compliment full wall applications. Continue reading

We have found photographic murals to be hugely popular. we expect this to only increase as more and more beautiful murals come onto the market.

Wallpaper is used worldwide to decorate interior walls (and sometimes furniture) in homes, shops, offices, and public spaces. The style, price, and appearance of different wallpapers will vary dramatically, and as a consequence different styles will be popular at different times.

Most shops will differentiate their wallpapers on ‘stripes’, ‘plain’, floral’, ‘polka’, ‘damask’, and ‘conversational’. Most distinctions will also be based on the base colour.

However, most modern wallpapers are not the classical ‘repeat design’. On the contrary, they are statement mural pieces. As a consequence, the hot trends for this coming 2015 season’s wallpaper design is around the following:

More and more modern homes are turning to realistic floral photo murals to inspire their living rooms, office spaces, and even bedrooms! Continue reading

Top designer Scot Meacham Wood  made this design trend prediction for 2015 regarding wallpaper.

Wallpaper is still coming back strong – and I think the next year is going to provide even more options and expansions in the wallpaper market. Look for more bold patterns (and those aforementioned saturated colours) on walls (and ceilings and doors!) in the next year. This image from Steven Sclaroff is a perfect example – maybe not for everyone … but, an inventive and bold use of a classic botanical wallpaper applied to walls, doors, and casings!

Some of the other design predictions for 2015 include glamour, bright colour, mixed metals, white and of course wallpaper

Wallpaper seems to come and go, but we are having a major love affair with it right now. It adds such dimension, warmth, and personality to a space— something you just can’t get from paint alone. From art-driven to knockout statement paper, these are our favorites. Not comfortable doing an entire room? Start with one wall or a jewel-box powder room.

There really is something to suit all tastes when it comes to wallpaper. Because it is so versatile we think wallpaper is amazing and is here to stay.

Wallpaper Installers Brisbane – Covering The Walls Of Brisbane

We have been covering the walls of Brisbane with beautiful wallpaper for years. We have over 30 years of experience when it comes to wallpaper installation in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

We have seen Brisbanites embrace wallpaper! We have seen a big increase in homes and businesses throughout Brisbane and surrounds using wallpaper to great effect.

The average home owner can now give their home an injection of style by using wallpaper. The beauty of wallpaper is that it’s an affordable way to create big impact in a space.
Paint can’t deliver the same “wow factor” that wallpaper can. One feature wall is all that is needed in most cases to create a really visual appealing wall that will completely transform your room.

With so many beautiful wallpaper to choose from, there really is a style to suit all tastes. There are very modern vinyls that are neutral in colour but amazing in texture. Materials such a grass weaves and matting that is very in at the moment. We see a lot of commercial establishments using these wallcoverings as they are unlikely to date but at the same time add a whole new dimension to an area.

Below are two walls we wallpapered in Brisbane using a neutral textured paper. The first wall was where the tv would be and was just the thing to break up the room and draw the eye to a focal point. A lot of people are using wallpaper to highlight a tv alcove. The second wall was a dividing wall that was wallpapered in the same paper. Both walls looked amazing when finished and gave the home an instant modern vibe.

Below is another example of a one colour modern textured wallpaper used in an entry. It highlights the wall perfectly and creates instant visual appeal, so much better than a stark white wall.
The wallpaper is from Arte International and is part of their Boracay Collection. It has amazing texture, it’s made from plants but looks like snakeskin. We include a closeup shot below to give you an idea.

Having seen the wallpaper up close you can see how some wallpapers are effective because of their textures and not necessarily their patterns or designs.

Whilst many businesses across Brisbane choose commercial wallcoverings there are many that want something that will be alive with colour and pattern. Something that will entice their customers in and make them feel instantly relaxed and comfortable. many businesses such as salons, hairdressers, nail bars, boutiques and shops choose a wallpaper that will look on trend and be an accessory to the business. We’ve found damask wallpaper is great for that as shown below.

Installing wallpaper in the bedroom is very popular. we are finding that some people aren’t quite adventurous enough to wallpaper a wall in the living areas yet are quite willing to experiment with wallpaper in the bedroom. However after they fall in love with their bedroom and realise how just one feature wall can transform the whole room they are willing to wallpaper the living room.
There really is no easier way to add the “wow factor” to a space. Even great art work doesn’t have the same impact as wallpaper, if you choose right.

Bedroom wallpaper installation Brisbane

Below is a different contrast to the bedroom above. Where one is sophisticated and moody, the wallpaper below is soft, feminine and romantic. A perfect example of how wallpaper can be so many things in one area.

Another way to add interest to a space is to use wallpaper to highlight an unusual area such as an alcove or partition. Below we used a Cole and Sons wallpaper called Woods to wallpaper a feature wall that extends up to a skylight. It looked very effective and really made the whole area.

The bedroom partition below looks amazing. Wallpapering the divider in a stunning Harlequin wallpaper has made all the difference and created a feature that has transformed this room.

Another very popular trend in wallpaper today is the use of faux finish wallcoverings such as brick wallpaper, wood wallpaper and concrete look wallpaper.
Below is an example of a brick wallpaper we installed to an area underneath stairs in a Brisbane highset home.
