A new year and new wallpaper trends where colour and personality are in focus. At Photowall we’ve rounded up the key trends for the wall. Wallpaper Trend 1 – Authentic Presence We’re welcoming the year where structure wood-wallpapers are dominant, at least if you like the trend’s authentic presence.

It’s hard to imagine anything could top the lush tropic patterns and archetypal seventies swatches that took the design world by storm in 2016. But since leading color experts Pantone announced ‘Greenery’ as Colour of the Year 2017, we’re expecting even stronger vibrancy in this year’s interior trends. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up the key interior trends predicted for 2017 and how you can channel them in your own home. Zest is best You heard it – green is set to dominate color palettes this year and utilising the natural shade can help create an energising space. Whether you use accent bursts or go emerald with your paint palettes, introducing green hues into your home will be a sure winner this year. As one of the most soothing shades around, green can add a sense of ease to any part of your home. You might not want to use green from floors to walls, but introducing the color subtly with accessories is a great way to inject the trend into your home.

Fashion season is back in full swing, and we’ve seen a shift in silhouettes and a palpable shakeup in patterns and color. From contemporary catwalks at Fashion Week, fresh into the walls and accessories of your home – here we explore how you can use these trends to help inspire a fashion-led switch up in your home. Texture touches Radical ruffles adorned the catwalk at New York Fashion Week, and channelling notably ruched décor is the best way to get the look.

These kind of fabrics work really well alongside pastel hues and blushed metallic shades of rose gold and copper.

Spring is finally approaching, bringing with it new trends. We can leave the dark, muted colours of autumn behind and focus on brighter shades. The big trend colours this spring are pink and blue, ideally matched with the accent colour white. Our interior inspiration continues to come from nature and plants climbing the walls feel just right – as in our wall mural Geranium, designed by Byracka.
Wallpaper can be so much more than patterned walls. If, like us at Photowall, you prefer to see wallpaper more as a material for change, you suddenly have tremendous possibilities to create just the feeling you’re looking for in your home.There has been a veritable explosion in the structure trend recently. Marble, concrete, wood and fully tiled walls feature strongly in almost every interior design magazine. Homes should feel rustic and down-to-earth – but also personal, reflecting the people that live there. If you’re not blessed with a wood panel you can reveal, or you want to create a concrete wall more simply, there are alternatives. At Photowall we have structure wall murals in a variety of forms. Never has it been so easy to create change.
This summer’s interior design trends celebrate individuality and serenity through unique pieces that sit oh-so-harmoniously among everyday home essentials. There’s something distinctly beautiful about pairing the old with the new, and elements of reclaimed rustic décor combined with contrasting bold statement shades of colour accentuate this perfectly. Primary colours have been swapped for palettes that reflect the diversity of nature, and in this piece we explore different ways to use vibrant shades of mustard and yellow.Beautiful bathroomBathrooms are often the hardest room in the house to get right. The perfect bathroom usually combines space-saving basics with objects that serve a purpose. Often, people opt for neutral shades and soft hues in their bathrooms for calmness. The alternative would be to follow this summer’s top interior trend and add in statement pops of colour with soft furnishings – bright towels, robes and rugs all add personal flair to your bathroom. Large bold patterns can also create an illusion of a greater interior space – try pairing our Pineapple wall mural with yellow accessories for those all-important colour pops.
Lately we've seen the pineapple everywhere in the interior world. On posters, pillow cases, lamp foots - you name it. Photowall of course is a big fan of the trend and for the brave we have wallpapers to decorate the walls with this beautiful fruit.
We are really proud of our inspiration images to the freshest collection Summer Memories by designer Ulrika Gustafsson. The stylist behind the images, Sten Vasseur, is a florist at Grand Hôtel in Stockholm – which turned out to be perfect as the collection contains beautiful floral motifs.
