Wallpapers featuring graphic lines and bold shapes in a gentle colour palette are taking centre stage in home decorating, blurring the lines between traditional notions of masculine and feminine styling. When it comes to displaying such striking wallpaper, the bigger the better, so opt for a floor-to-ceiling accent wall or wallpaper an entire room for a contemporary and commanding effect.
Elegant and arresting, the Open Trellis wallpaper by York Wallcoverings is reminiscent of Moroccan art and architecture. Enhance its calming blue-and-white palette and organic forms by pairing with neutral furnishings in clean silhouettes.

To avoid the sterile and clinical feel that can often result from an all-white colour scheme, go for wallpaper with a subtle metallic finish. The Ondulation Blanc wallpaper from the Edison collection by Casadeco features pearlescent triangles that add interest and depth to any room.
The French Knot wallpaper from York Wallcoverings is toned down by its dusty colour palette and consists of broad bands of raised dashes, resulting in a look that resembles stitches on a smooth backdrop. It’s a simple and standout wall covering ideal for a small room, as it will help create the illusion of space.
Crisp lines meet hypnotic shapes that unite and repeat in HS2010 from Ashford House’s Pattern Play collection by Hertex. Reminiscent of the repetitive forms that occur in nature, this vivid wallpaper will catch people’s attention and encourage lengthy gazing.
If you’re an Art Deco fan, you’ll love the luxurious and reflective Palladian wallpaper from York Wallcoverings. It’s neutral enough to blend in but sophisticated enough to make a statement.
