Wallpaper: 5 Trends for 2018

Wallpaper has undergone a renaissance in recent years and is now more popular than ever in today's homes. Here's a quick look at what's trending.

1. Floral patterns

Always a classic! Floral patterned wallpaper is a great way to add a country touch to a room. The floral wallpapers of 2018 have a more natural look and are less intense than those used during the "peace and love" years, but they still maintain their lively colours. This wallpaper is ideal for creating an accent wall in a bathroom, living room or bedroom.

2. A touch of nature

Wallpaper that is inspired by nature continues to be very popular in 2018. If you want to bring an exotic touch to a room, choose wallpaper that is reminiscent of the jungle, a rainforest or any other nature scene that inspires you. For a more minimalist or Scandinavian decor, there are more discreet options that also highlight nature.
