Habitat plus - pattern

Wallpaper brings us unbelievable diversity.

Wallpaper continues its march across our walls, bringing pattern, colour and texture to our interiors in often unexpected ways. Bold, oversized patterns, murals and luxury looks tempt us with eye-widening drama.

Faux looks are still strong but in more subtle ways with wallpapers that mimic cork, bark and distressed concrete. Wallpapers often bring a tactile sophistication with embossed surfaces, delicately flocked patterns, and textural finishes.

Create your own

While there is a huge range of wallpaper available from Resene ColorShops, if you can’t find exactly what you’re after, try a totally bespoke solution with Resene WallPrint. Whether it’s a family photo, an art print you like or a graphic you have designed, simply upload a photo and add the dimensions of your wall. The online programme will then calculate 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.
