4. Stay classy with subtle prints

Sometimes less is more when it comes to wallpaper designs. Subtle prints are a timeless trend that add texture and warmth to a space without overpowering the room. Our favourite classics are subtle floral prints on soft, neutral tones. Pair a classic print wallpaper with a luxury occasional chair for a classy, high-end look.

5. Make a statement with embossed wallpaper

Embossed wallpapers complete with fashion-forward designs are emerging as one of the biggest trends for 2022, and we can see why. The raised design of embossed wallpaper gives it texture, adding depth to your space, whilst designs such as this funky flamingo print add heaps of character.

Some wall patterns are simply timeless. We're loving the look of this green and gold patterned bee wallpaper, which features a perfect mix of traditional and contemporary. Pair with gold home accessories and velvet furniture for a totally timeless feel. Alternatively, if you're looking for something funky and fabulous, opt for a subdued yet striking zebra print wallpaper.
