Interior Design Trends and Modern Wallpaper
Throughout the years, wallpaper has been a bit of a taboo subject in the world of interior design. Majorly popularized throughout the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s, mid-century modern design showcased a phalanx of paper putter-uppers.
Over the years, wallpaper petered out as neutral colors took to the stage of wall Accenture and later evolved into bolder and more daring looks with vibrant colors and textural treatments. However, with the recent emergence of modern daring looks, wallpaper is making a serious comeback in today’s design wold.
Trends are popping up all over major designers’ portfolio books that are bringing a new sense of style back in the room design and decor. Geometric patterns of plaids, Greek key, Mediterranean and Islamic patterns are all the rage.
The major plus side of wallpaper that has brought back its reemerging is the fact that nothing is more unique or bolder than the ability to flawlessly incorporate interesting design without looking kitschy and/or cheap-tastic.
Another major trend in modern wallpaper design is the incorporation of modern floral, fleur-de-lis, and baroque-inspired trimmings. These patterns, once popularized at the height of french royalty, saw their way out as trends changed and became “Americanized.”
Though, these days more and more designers are turning to the past and European design in particular to add a romantic and homey feel to today’s homeowner.
