From Habitat plus - wallpaper

There's a growing appetite for whimsical and quirky wallpaper designs, which are being increasingly used in quite sophisticated schemes.

In the interior design world, they're called 'conversational' designs – and you can see why. Pair a feature wallpaper with a bold Resene paint colour and bright furniture to create a room which is packed with personality. There are cheeky cheetahs, prickly cacti, fruity tropical prints and perky polka dots – these off-the-wall wallpaper designs will definitely get you talking.
