Habitat plus - Pattern

Wallpaper has come of age.

No longer the preserve of Nana’s back bedroom, today’s wallpaper has a lusciousness, variety and depth not seen before.

Bespoke digital prints, unexpected texture, eyepopping patterns, hand-drawn illustrations, shimmering metallics, holographic effects and hyper-real faux looks. We’re spoilt for choice.

Paper the whole room, or just one wall. Whatever the look – luxe, low-key or the slightly bizarre – there’s a wallpaper to suit.

Imperfect walls?
Use a textured or faux wallpaper to disguise them.

Use wallpaper as a fashion accessory.
Most modern wallpapers can easily be removed and replaced or repainted as often as you desire and can afford

Did you know… that new wallpaper collections are regularly released, so keep an eye on the wallpaper library at your local Resene ColorShop

Totally bespoke
Create your own paper with Resene WallPrint. Whether it’s a family photo, an art print you like, or a graphic you have designed, simply upload a photo, add the dimensions of your wall then the online programme calculates how much wallpaper you need. You will receive paste-the-wall wallpaper strips cut to size and numbered, so it’s super easy to put up.
