Wallpaper is by far the quickest way to bring depth and detail into your living space. A world away from the frumpy prints that lined your grandmother’s walls, modern wallpaper options are as vibrant and diverse as homes across South Africa. But being spoilt for choice leads us to a new conundrum - how to choose the right wallpaper for your space. We’ve narrowed it down to three essential steps to help you find your perfect match.
- Know Your Home
Are you a minimalist? Opt for a subtle textured print to add warmth to your space without detracting from the clean lines you’ve created. Is mid-century modern your aesthetic of choice? Opt for the Gatsby-inspired geometric print of your dreams. A nature-inspired space calls for a neutral statement wall to match. Just changing the colour scheme of your print can make the world of difference to the look and feel of a room. How do you want to feel when you go inside?
- Know Your Style
If your living room is filled with bold fabrics and framed art pieces, a subtle print allows your gallery wall to be the main event, while adding warmth and elegance to the room. Are you looking to bring boldness into your dining area, a mural could be the perfect choice to add a pop of pizzazz to an otherwise understated space.
- Know Your Goal
Do you live to entertain? Give your guests something to talk about by adding a bold mural to your dining room. Add a little magic to your little one’s world by covering their walls in a fairytale animal-print. If you lead a high-pressure work life, it’s likely that your home is a haven of soft tones and plush fabrics where you unwind at the end of a long day. Choose feminine, muted colours with a hint of metallics to create a soft, playful space to kick off your shoes.
