Trends in colour pattern and feel for wallpaper this year

Wallpaper trends 2016

Our studios are filled to the brim with pattern books, swatches and samples helping us keep ahead of the trends. Be inspired by modern geometrics, understated pastels, and refreshing aqua designs.


Bold geometric patterns are back for 2016, modernising walls for the coming season. Expect designs in striking colourways to bring a contemporary look to this style; on-trend blue hues help update traditional geometric patterns such as Honeycomb by Casadeco, giving a more modern feel. For an understated, subtle take on the trend use bold asymmetric designs in muted tones, such as Geometric Wood Panelling by Albany. The soft pastels help give a fresh take on Autumn/Winter 2015’s trend for textured wallpapers, whilst tapping into the trend for candy colours for the warmer seasons.

Pastel hues return, with a fresh feel coming from a sun-bleached palette of patterns and paints. Soft colours can bring a feminine, vintage vibe to interiors – think muted ice-cream tones such as pretty pinks, pale greens and lovely lilacs. These calming colourways help compliment traditional patterns such as the elegant Toile by C Brewer and Sons and Jungle by Paper Moon – updated for this season with modern colour ways. After making its mark in 2015, yellow is set to continue to brighten walls throughout Spring/Summer 2016 making it a key shade for the sun-bleached trend. Trends-Blog_09.jpg

Associated with peace, harmony and happiness, aqua accents are set to embrace walls. Reminiscent of the aqua waters seen on unforgettable holidays, this shade is perfect for vintage interiors, as well as sleek, contemporary homes. Combine aqua shades with earthy toned furniture to bring a touch of colour to your interiors; designs such as Nirvana by Albany Indian Summer tie both palettes together. Alternatively, striking shades and deceptively simple designs, such as Danzon by Matthew Williamson can be coupled with bold, bright accessories such as fuchsia to create the perfect backdrop for plain furnishings to really make your walls stand out.
