Wallpaper Trends for the season

Wallpaper Trends for the season

It’s Black Friday this week and everyone is focussing on specials and promotions. At Wallpaper Inn we are giving away 20% discount on all purchases over R1000 when you use the coupon code BLACKFRIDAY20. Our promotion runs from Friday 27 November - Monday 30 November - because we understand most people enjoy weekend shopping too! We thought we wouldn’t focus on Black Friday for this blog post, but rather on what’s trending and what customers are looking to have in their homes this season!

With summer on its way and the holiday season fast approaching everyone is in the mood for change. In light of 2020 and the COVID pandemic we are all expectant to see what 2021 ushers in! We are all excited and inspired with hope. And a revamp of our spaces is just the trick to stir that joy!

It seems appropriate then that the shedding of this past year is what people are experiencing and embracing - and the trends are lining up with this subconsciously - with popular choices being exposed brick, rough concrete and metallic textured papers being very popular.

Trompe-l'œil literally translates as “trick of the eye”, as walls are made to look like something they're not. Faux brick wallpapers are forever popular and have remained fashionable for years. A great way to achieve a rustic or industrial look without the headache of a big renovation, our brick wallpapers and murals are perfect for the modern homeowner.

At Wallpaper Inn, browse our bevy of brick wallpapers in reds, cool and warm greys and sleek and distressed textures - you are spoilt for choice! https://shop.wallpaperinn.co.za/wallpaper/bricks/

In addition, we have a beautiful range of concrete, stone, slates and rich, mixed texture wallpapers, combining rough, organic textures with opulent metallics.


On trend colours for the season - navy, emerald, gold, and blush are tastefully married with elemental, earthy tones and textures to create a wonderful finish just right for your space.


When it comes to décor finishes all these wallpapers are a versatile choice. Complement the red brick by adding accents or furniture in pops of blue, sage green, mustard, red, mint, or turquoise. Balance it out with some cherry brown, warm grey or charcoal, or add contrast with black and white.

For the cooler brick and slate shades, warm with neutrals, nudes, rose golds, and soft greys or imbue with décor elements in shades of plum, teal, navy and yellow.


Whether you prefer brick, natural or metallic - we have something for everyone in our well curated selection of wallpapers. Our knowledgeable staff will assist you in choosing the right wallpaper and we can recommend reputable installers to install your wallpaper to make this festive season an enjoyable and stress-free one!
