Wonderful wallpaper

From habitat plus - bedrooms

Wallpaper can fill your bedroom with colour, character and personality.

Art Deco décor

Fan designs are a classic theme in Art Deco décor. Resene Wallpaper Collection AGA003 works in place of a neutral wall colour in a heritage home. Pair with walls and bay windows painted in a soft white like Resene Merino.

Today’s wallpapers are more diverse than ever so whether you’re after a classic design to match your heritage home or a playful animal pattern for your modern apartment, there’s something to suit everyone in the Resene Wallpaper Collection.

When there’s so many designs to choose from it can be hard to narrow down one you like. One idea is to take inspiration from the architecture of your home. A home built in the 1960s or 1970s might suit a geometric mid-century pattern while a villa could hark back to its Victorian roots with a William Morris-inspired design or a Californian bungalow could channel a little Art Deco glam with a design with a fan pattern or gold-coloured diamonds or horizontal stripes for a touch of ‘streamline moderne’.

Other themes to try

Wallpaper with exotic charm

While at first glance it appears to be a classic Victorian-inspired design a closer look at Resene Wallpaper Collection 91091 reveals zebras and palm trees – for a bit of exotic charm. Pair with bedlinen made with natural fibres such as linen and cotton and flooring and skirting stained with Resene Colorwood Natural wood stain protected in Resene Qristal ClearFloor to create a relaxed space.

top tip  It's best to order more wallpaper than you need. New wallpaper collections are regularly launched and older collections are usually deleted after three years, sometimes sooner. If you need to patch or replace any damaged paper, you may not be able to buy it anymore. Also, with graphic wallpapers, pattern matching can soak up extra rolls.

Wallpaper with a pink stripe pattern

Wallpaper with a forest canopy design

Pink room: There’s nothing quite like a stripe pattern to transform a bedroom from tired to terrific. Resene Wallpaper Collection E300131 features both green grey and pink tones allowing you to pair it with greens such as Resene Robin Egg Blue from the Karen Walker Paints collection, pinks such as Resene Wax Flower, greys like Resene Silver Chalice or a crisp white such as Resene AlabasterGreen room: Wake up beneath a forest canopy with Resene Wallpaper Collection 91250. Add nature-inspired touches such as earth-toned linen and sheer drapes and flooring in Resene Colorwood Natural protected with Resene Qristal ClearFloor.

Textured anaglypta wallpaper

Nature inspired wallpaper

Glamourous bedroom: Anaglyptas are textured wallpapers that are designed to be painted over – ideal for when you want a wallpaper in a particular colour. Create a glamorous bedroom with Resene Wallpaper Collection D80000 painted with a green grey such as Resene Lemon Grass or a regal grey like Resene Silver Chalice. Stain flooring in dark Resene Colorwood Deep Oak and protect with Resene Qristal ClearFloor to amp up the luxe factor.  Nature bedroom: Patterns inspired by nature will bring a feeling of calm to your bedroom. Resene Wallpaper Collection 2008-146-04 can be used instead of a neutral to create additional texture in a space. Pair with walls painted in soft cream Resene Double Thorndon Cream.


Dial up the drama in your bedroom by creating the ultimate feature wall with a mural from the Resene Wallpaper Collection. Think of murals as a large-scale artwork designed to fit your entire wall. These oversized designs can transform your space into a floral wonderland, a Jurassic-age jungle or your favourite beach or mountain. Or, create your own custom mural from your favourite photos. Resene WallPrints come in strips which you hang in the recommended order. These oversized designs look particularly good in rooms with a high ceiling where it’s possible to see the full scale of the design.

A bold wallpaper design for your bedroom

A dreamy wallpaper design

Tropical wallpaper: Add a touch of escapism to your bedroom with a bold design such as Resene Wallpaper Collection HX7-050 which will transport you to a land before time. Pair with trims in Resene Merino and flooring in Resene Colorwood Natural or Resene Colorwood WhitewashClouds wallpaper: The dreamy design of Resene Wallpaper Collection 99347 will have you feeling like you are drifting away in the clouds or have been swept into the brushstrokes of a Constable landscape painting. Let the mural be the star and keep bedlinen and flooring simple with Resene Colorwood Natural on the floor protected in Resene Qristal ClearFloor.
