Over the years, wallpaper has been developed to offer fresh and creative finishes & textures that will bring definition and style to any interior. The latest technology within the paper and paste industry now allows wallpapers to be used in all areas of the home, even the kitchen and bathroom. The industry experts at Harlequin talk us through how to use different wallpapers and styles around your home in their ‘Know How’ guide below…
All types of wallpaper are suitable for use in your living room. It all comes down to the style that you are wanting to achieve! Contemporary graphic wallpapers make a huge impact on their own, but if you are looking for a more individual look, why not mix designs and colours together? We love the combination of Harlequin’s Plateau and Meridian design in mustard and smoke.
Period homes often have beautiful panelling – make a feature of these panels by incorporating a statement paper to add a contemporary twist whilst still retaining the character of the property.
If you prefer more of a retro living area which is currently a hot interiors trend, why not look at Harlequin’s collaboration of retro inspired wallpapers with renowned designer Orla Kiely.
Make your dining room the talking point at dinner parties by incorporating statement wallpapers into your interior. Whether you are after a cool contemporary look or a classic country style…there is something for everyone. Here are some of our top picks:
The hallway is the first place visitors see, so make sure you show it off to it’s best! Wallpapers that run the full drop of your walls make a real statement. Metallics are on-trend this autumn, so why not stay at the forefront of fashion and add some of these luxurious shades into your home?
People are often wary about using wallpapers in kitchens but due to the advanced technology in wallpaper and paste, this is now possible and should certainly be treated the same as any other room in your house. We love the look of this country kitchen with the added designer touch of mixing designs from the same colour palette.
As with kitchens, wallpapers are now great for bathrooms too, so why not add a touch of design and colour to your walls? Create a classic rustic look with Poetica’s drift wallpaper, a contemporary colourful feature with Boutique’s Jolie Stripe, or a luxurious statement with Koi, which features painterly fish swimming through water.
The bedroom is your place to retreat to, so why not use wallpaper that really reflects your personality – from vibrant upbeat bedrooms to tranquil boudoirs. If you like bright, cheerful colours in your bedroom, these wallpapers from leading interior brand Harlequin are definitely for you.
If you prefer more of a tranquil oasis in calming hues, take a look at these relaxing havens.
