As we turn more of our attention indoors during the cold winter months, it becomes increasingly difficult to resist the urge to redecorate. Rather than breaking the bank on a full-on renovation, update your space with a statement wallpaper instead – it’s far easier on the pocket and will provide the wow factor you’re looking for. Be inspired by these five wonderful wallpapers from our Pinterest boards.
With its barcode-like succession of vertical lines and a palette straight out of Alice in Wonderland, this 320550 wallpaper from the Stripes Only collection by Eijffinger, available from Dreamweaver Studios, makes a playful statement. It’s ideal for a colourful kids’ room or a superbly bright welcome in an entrance hall. Find more bold wallpapers here.
When we asked Marc Shotland of Home Fabrics for advice on how to incorporate a bold print in a space he told us: ‘Use a three-tone colour palette as your base, and then go wild with pattern and texture.’ This Mughal Garden wallpaper in Navy and Paprika from the Durbar collection by Matthew Williamson for Osborne & Little has a luxurious feel and its vibrant pink, yellow, orange and blue tones update the classic floral look.

A statement wall doesn’t have to be bursting with colour; this detailed scenic print in all shades of grey manages to attract attention without being overpowering. The hand-painted L’Eden wallpaper in Grey from the Papiers Peints Panoramiques collection by De Gournay has an enchanting effect on its minimal surrounds.
Making a statement doesn’t need to be complicated, either. Mosaic wallpaper in Soft is a simple yet eye-catching design by Parisian studio Bien Fait, made up of colourful, tessellating triangles that encourage your eye to dart around the room. It looks beautiful here paired with classic furnishings and vintage art.
Created by Anewalldecor, this giant Spring Floral wall mural is a welcome reminder of the new season, featuring an overblown watercolour painting in feminine pinks, peaches and purples. At once subtle and striking, it would look marvellous on a focal wall in your living room.
