Home Decor: 7 Wallpaper Designs to Fawn Over
Hayward on Goldoni by Fromental
A collaboration between Fromental and furniture and lighting brand, Marta Sala Éditions, the Hayward on Goldoni pattern is a mix of gorgeous blue and green hues complemented with gold accents, all made from plush velvet.
Untitled I by Fromental
Fromental was inspired by English artist Ben Nicholson—who specialises in abstract, landscape and still life paintings—in its Untitled I design. With its pencil-thin lines in soft black and subtle shades of pink, beige and skin tones, it will make one feel as if they walked into the pages of Nicholson’s sketchbook.
Houghton by De Gournay
De Gournay is a brand synonymous with exquisite, hand-painted wallpaper and its Houghton design does not disappoint. The inspiration came from the Chinoiserie wallpaper, which dates back to the 18th century, at Houghton Hall—a Palladium home in Norfolk that was built for the UK’s first prime minister. The Houghton pattern brings to mind the signature De Gournay favourites—a gorgeous pattern of vines and florals, along with an exotic bird or two, that is available in three colour themes.
Riga by Missoni Home
Fans of Missoni will immediately recognise its Riga or Zig Zag collection of wallpaper and liken it to the fashion brand’s characteristic style—a kaleidoscope of colours arranged in lined or geometric patterns. Another less obvious option is the equally colourful, and a touch more whimsical, Vanessa pattern that is covered with butterflies.
Coral Pearl by Lala Curio
Pearl beads in various sizes are arranged to depict coral reefs on a pale orange or blue-grey background—a tactile wallcovering that manages to look both delicate and striking at the same time.
Geometries by Lala Curio
The eclectic mix of styles featured in the Geometries wallpaper reads like a laundry list of art themes but give it the Lala Curio treatment and it just works. Geometric shapes are decorated with patterns inspired by Australian Aboriginal patterns, mid-century modern prints and Gustav Klimt’s paintings, all in shades of gold, silver, pastel pink and spring green.
Shoji Blossom by Tat Ming Wallpaper
The traditional grid pattern found on Japanese shoji screens is combined with cherry blossom motifs for a tranquil, tactile wallcovering made from denim or felted wool in midnight blue.
