Wallpaper trends continue to remain popular with new and improved technology capable of producing rich color and large graphic designs that are strong and exhilarating, according to columnist Patti L. Cowger of NapaValleyRegister.com.
Wallpaper is not just made with paper. Today you will find offerings made with metal, canvas and flexible glass. Grass cloth’s have expanded their offerings to a rainbow of colors for those who love this natural look.
Florals, damask and highly textured patterns are also making a comeback which may be a concern to some but the new adaptations make them fresh, bold and palatable. The flowers and damask are graphic and bolder, and the textured papers offer a pretty alternative to white walls. Wallpaper is here to stay as a design element for all styles.
Kravet has just introduced Echo Design, an heirloom India wallpaper collection inspired by India’s rich history of color and textile patterns. These distinctive designs include paisley, ikat and small geometric motifs that have been re-interpreted to create a relevant, modern statement.
In colors ranging from hot vibrant orange and pink to deep indigo, soft aqua, refined calm grey and yellow, these eye-catching wallpapers are a stunning interpretation of beautiful ikats and traditional handblock designs.
Enjoy incorporating wallpaper into your next design project, it plans on being around for many decorating years to come!
