Wallpaper Design Inspiration for your New Home
Wallpaper needn’t be boring, nor should it be overlooked when you plan the interior design of your new home.
Feature wallpaper is for when you want to make a bold statement in your home. From dramatic florals and geometric prints to subtle splashes of colour or detail; you are given seemingly endless amounts of wallpaper choices to choose from at affordable prices – all thanks to the internet.
Your home is your sanctuary, a reflection of you. Go that little bit extra to customize your spaces with wallpaper that reflects the mood you’re trying to create.
Take a look at some inspiring wallpaper examples below (a vast majority of them came from Graham & Brown – check them out, stunning wallpaper collections to choose from) which will hopefully spark some ideas in your head about what direction you want to go in with your own home.

Brown wallpaper is the new neutral. It can be teamed with almost any colour scheme, creating a chic-masculine vibe
