From Habitat plus - wallpaper

The most popular category of wallpaper style is texture. It's the wallpaper equivalent of the Resene Whites & Neutrals collection.

Texture adds character to a single-colour wallpaper, enabling light to play across its surface to add an extra element of visual interest. Textured and fibrous wallpapers add a natural look to a room that instantly makes the space feel cosy and calm.

Another product in this category is Anaglypta – timeless textural paint-on wallpapers. They come in a wide variety of patterns from traditional motifs to softly textured and offer the flexibility of finishing them with your favourite Resene paint colour. The Anaglypta design such as Resene Wallpaper Collection RD125 above, can be painted with a deep blue like Resene Tarawera to give a room classic charm.

Woven, crumpled, embossed or bark-like, textured and paint-on wallpapers add subtle character and dimension

Did you know?  Wallpaper is a great way to disguise damaged or uneven walls. The thickness of the paper and the visual effect of the pattern help cover the bad bits.
