We love a “feature wall” here at Betta Living and standout wallpaper collections continue to be a big trend in 2014.
Wallpaper can bring pattern, design and texture to a room - further than what can be achieved with paint and we particularly love this effect when contrasted with our fitted furniture in kitchens, bedrooms and even bathrooms where specialist wallpaper can still be incorporated into the design.
We asked Sarah Dickson, our resident interior stylist, to share her current favourite wallpapers by Graham & Brown.
Here are her top five:
Kelly Hoppen's Knightsbridge Bead is a stunning geometric print. Clean lines and the use of dual colour will suit any style of room. This version of the Knightsbridge wallpaper design is an indulgent beaded design, reminiscent of tiny crystals that sparkle in the light for a really decadent look.
Steve Leung's Bao is inspired by oriental screens. It's a print destined to be a modern classic. Clever use of tones and heights give a sophisticated three dimensional effect and the metallic highlights add elegance and decadence.
Barbara Hulanicki – Hula oozes Barbara Hulanicki’s Art Deco influenced signature style combining it with modern colour ways to create a Victorian inspired geometric design, which is a good contrast with Mid-Century modern. This wallpaper adds a subtle and elegant shine to any room.
Isabelle from Monsoon, is a bright and beautiful flower and bird motif wallpaper. Inspired by an 18th Century French design, the charming blue and pink birds sit perched upon the stems of pink roses in bloom, surrounded by fluttering blue, white and pink butterflies and is evocative of classic, European elegance.
Kelly’s Ikat by Kelly Hoppen is a contemporary take on the ancient weaving and dyeing technique Ikat. This geometric feature wallpaper in bold blue and white would add a real impact to your home or even workspace.
Do the geometric graphics float your boat or are you the floral prints more to your taste when it comes to wallpaper? As always, tell us what you think – which of these wallpapers do you like the most or like the least?
