Jenny Blanc Writes…Wonderful Wallpaper Part 1

Jenny Blanc PictureI’ve always loved wallpapers because they set the scene for the room, and create atmosphere. But, I often find that people aren’t aware of the fantastic variety of texture and style in wallpapers. For a long time wallpaper has been seen as only very traditional. Recently, however, the design houses have come up with contemporary designs that work in many different styles of home. Wallpapers are now THE thing to have. Even if you have a very large design you can have a feature wall and two plainer walls with tonally schemed paints.

So, this week I’ve shown some delightful schemes, which demonstrate the wonderful capabilities of wallpaper for transforming a room. Of course, a traditional, floral print is an easy way of creating comfort, and colour as you will see below. But, there are many more contemporary or modern prints and materials that can have really beautiful effects. From a simple paper to silk and shells, the materials that can be used today are truly remarkable, and the effects even more so. I hope you love the schemes as much as I do!

Contemporary
The huge increase in the creation of stunning, contemporary designs is truly evident in these Jim Thompson wallpapers. A bold geometric, paired with a modern combination of colours in a floral print, shows the subtle influence of a traditional design with a contemporary twist through colour.

Traditional
Traditional, floral prints, with a modern twist from the Baptista collection by Colefax and Fowler show that traditional wallpaper isn’t outdated, but in fact has been brought right up to date, and immediately creates a sophisticated and elegant look.

Textured
A featured wall in textured wallpaper such as Seychelles above by Nobilis, made from Capiz shells, or a textured woven silk such as Sands of Lazaro by Philip Jeffries, is a fantastic way of creating a unique and magical room.
