2022 Wallpaper Trends Unwrapped

Hey there, wallpaper enthusiasts! Here we are, the dawn of a new year. But before we finish wrapping up 2022, we thought we'd take you back through the biggest wallpaper trends of the year to help inspire you.

Retro

First up, let's talk about one of the biggest trends of the year: retro-patterned wallpaper. If you’re a fan of all things vintage, this one’s for you. These throwback designs are all about bringing the past into the present with bold, geometric shapes and colourful palettes. Think ‘70s disco vibes meets ‘50s dinner chic.

Never one to stay in the past, Retro continues to be super popular into 2023! Our Keep On Rollin’, Wave After Wave and Peace and Love are signature Retro wallpaper styles and are the perfect way to add some fun and personality to any room.

Botanical

2022 also saw a huge rise in botanical wallpaper designs last year. Possibly the result of an increase in home working. With more and more people needing to bring some greenery into their homes, these nature-inspired patterns bring the outdoors in with colourful foliage, oversized flowers, and even fruit and vegetable prints. They’re a great way to add some life and colour to a room without committing to real plants.

So bring some Miami Vibes to your home office or relax Under the Banana Tree with these breezy botanicals to bring a breath of fresh air to your space.

Abstract

Another popular trend last year was abstract patterns. These designs are all about creating vascular interest with shapes, lines, and colours that don’t necessarily represent anything in particular.

They’re great for adding some drama and depth to a room without being too overpowering. So if you're looking for a wallpaper that's a little more subtle but still makes a statement, abstract patterns may be the way to go.

Our Good Vibrations abstract wallpaper is perfect for adding some pizzazz to any room.

Bold

But if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, why not go for a bold, graphic print? These bold wallpapers are all about making a statement with large-scale designs and eye-catching colours. They’re perfect for adding some drama and impact to a room, especially when paired with minimal furniture and decor. So if you’re looking to make a big impact with your wallpaper, graphic prints are the way to go.

Mary Jane and Mesmerised are some seriously bold wallpapers! So go ahead, make a statement!

So, there you have it, folks. These are just a few of the wallpaper trends that were hot last year. Whether you’re a fan of retro patterns, botanical designs, abstract patterns or bold statements, there’s something for everyone. So go ahead and give your walls the love they deserve with a fresh coat of trendy wallpaper. Your home (and Instagram feed) will thank you.
