Wallpaper features are continuing to be popular in styles ranging from faux finishes through to quirky conversational pieces that bring a sense of whimsy and creativity.
Collections like the Resene Portobello Wallpaper Collection uses fun designs in sophisticated colourways so that they can work well with a wide range of interior styles and tastes and add a little levity to otherwise serious spaces.
A "wallpaper headboard" and drawer front
Wallpapers aren’t just limited to walls, either. They are increasingly being used off walls to decorate furniture, do double duty as art or to highlight architectural features to bring a touch of pattern to painted spaces.
Resene Wallpaper Collection LL-05-07-4 was used to create a wallpaper ‘headboard’ and dress up the drawer on the bedside table in this child’s bedroom. The walls are painted Resene Bunting, the floor is in Resene Sea Fog, the bookshelf is in Resene Hammerhead, the box shelves are in Resene Breathless, Resene Jalapeno and Resene Hammerhead, the pendant lamp is in Resene Jalapeno and the bedside table is in Resene Breathless.
Interesting wallpapers and paint treatments are an instant conversation starter and the perfect way to express your personality on your walls. Give your visitors a reason to break the ice with a bathroom or lounge in Resene Wallpaper Collection 289564. Or, try wallpapering your staircase with a different pattern on each step.
