My pick of the latest bedroom wallpaper trends to transform your space

Bedroom wallpaper

If you’re thinking of treating your walls to a fresh coat of paint, think twice. Ok, I do love paint, but the latest wallpaper trends are – how can I put it – simply beautiful, so I’m totally for print and pattern right now. Whether you want to create a feature wall or go the maximalist route, wallpaper is a great way to upgrade your scheme, no matter the size of the room.

You can add a touch of personality through a bold choice, or give your space a luxurious feel with a gold foiled-design. Plus, I promise it’s easier than it looks especially if you’ve got a handy helper around.

The wallpaper trends I’ve spotted (and am loving) are:

  1. Botanical blooms – think anything inspired by nature, including bold leaf motifs and pretty, more delicate florals. But there are lots of Japanese-inspired prints winging their way into my inbox and onto my wishlist, too.
  2. Geometric shapes – always a classic and a great way to recreate an Art Deco-inspired look.
  3. Tropical – one for you maximilists. This is a trend that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
  4. Vintage – soft, beautiful prints in muted tones reminiscent of period properties and archive designs. Look out for flocked designs as well – yep, not to be dismissed!

Botanical blooms

For a whimsical bedroom scheme, choose wallpaper with delicate florals, dainty butterflies and elegant mockingbird prints in nature-inspired hues of dusty green, warm terracotta and pale blue – I’m already in love, are you?

Bring a touch of the outdoors in with a grand feature wall. The Classic Hua Trees mural wallpaper in grey, £189 per roll, from Sian Zeng will help add that sanctuary-like feeling to your bedroom and who doesn’t want that?
Decorate your bedroom walls with the Eleanor wallpaper from the Garden collection, £145, from Elizabeth Ockford to add a subtle pop of colour and a touch of tranquillity. You don’t have to go up to the ceiling with your wallpaper – you can add dimension with help from panelling and paint.

Create a calm and relaxing scheme with the Asterid Nightshade wallpaper, £216 per roll, which takes its inspiration from a fine illustrative painting from the mid-20th century. The ceiling is painted in the stand-out Lamp Black 228, £48.50 for 2.5L absolute matt emulsion, and the skirting in Lead Colour 117, £53 for 2.5L intelligent matt emulsion, all from Little Greene.

Add the wow factor to your bedroom with a bold wallpaper design that oozes style. The Electric Poppies 02 wallpaper, £125 per roll, from Lick in collaboration with Studio Coverdale has one floral and one fern as the focus in the popular pink and green colour combo.  

Geometric shapes

Revive your bedroom walls with Art-Deco-inspired metallic lines or create an optical illusion with bold stand-out patterns.

Go all-out and bring the holiday feeling to your bedroom through wallpaper with vibrant green leafy patterns and statement exotic fauna prints, or keep it simple with your favourite jungle print – the choice is yours.

Design a chic bohemian scheme with the Crane Fonda Soft Copper wallpaper, £150 per roll, from Divine Savages, which features the grey crowned crane intertwined with tall palm trees in a luxurious metallic colourway.   
Make a statement behind your bed with a bold wallpaper choice like the Jungle panther wallpaper in blue by the Graduate Collection, £125 per roll, available at Lime Lace. This exotic design features hand-painted panthers framed by oversized monstera and palm leaves. I reckon this would look stunning in a cloakroom too.
Wake up in a tropical paradise with the Beverly Hills wallpaper, £175 per 3 rolls, from Mindthegap. Let it be the focal point of your scheme and keep the décor simple, in similar shades. 
Transform your bedroom with the Palma 36530 wallcovering, £75 per 10 m roll, from Hooked on Walls. It comes in five colourways, but this warm orange shade is the perfect backdrop for the muted palm trees pattern.

Go for a sophisticated aesthetic with help from traditional wallpaper with soft floral and feather motifs, or opt for a classic structured Damask wallpaper print that takes you back in time. 

Opulence and elegance radiate from the floral Selwood wallpaper in Rose Pink, £120 per roll, from Woodchip & Magnolia. Match your bedroom décor and furniture to this timeless design as a nod to the Victorian era.
The lush pastel shades of the Parsonage Bloom wallpaper, £65 per roll, from Graham & Brown bring the old-school florals back in style while the neutral backdrop lets the classic print stand-out.
