Metallic wallpapers have been a key interior trend for the past two years - and their popularity shows no sign of fading. It’s their sheer versatility that’s giving this trend such longevity. They’re a great way to capture a high-end look as well as the perfect option when you want to reflect light into your room to maximise your space. And whether you have a modern pad or a more traditional place, there’s a metallic wallpaper out there for you. Let’s take a look at how the latest metallic wallpaper trends could work in your home.
This season, we’ve seen the geometric trend get the metallic treatment. The pairing of dark colours with metallic highlights creates a really dramatic effect, like the ultra-fashionable navy and rose gold, for example. A stunning choice for a contemporary bedroom, kitchen, study or cloakroom.
Damask design wallpapers have been brought right up-to-date in a range of metallic colours. They’re a great way to give your space an opulent feel – whether you pick out a feature wall, add shine to alcoves or go all-out on all four walls. This is a great look for a bedroom or grown-up living room, and will stand the test of time in homes of all tastes and eras.
THE NATURAL LOOK
Natural designs with a metallic twist are big news. From slate look papers to stone-effect designs, they are a fresh new way to bring metallic surfaces into your home. Natural designs with a reflective foil finish are a great way to flood your room with light – perfect for small spaces and open plan rooms alike. But you can also opt for a paper with a tactile, textured metallic finish or a design that contrasts matt with metallic for a strong, of-the-moment look.
Metallic papers in botanical designs are also on trend. From vibrant to monochrome, from traditional florals to fashion’s favourite tropical trend, you’ll find everything from palm prints to big blooms to satisfy your love for metallics. Whichever you prefer, they are fabulous way to add glamour to a bedroom or create a living space with a sleek look.
So, whatever interior style you favour - and whether you want to go big and bold or subtle and understated – there’s a metallic wallpaper that ticks all the boxes and ensures your look is thoroughly on trend.
