(Diesen Artikel auf Deutsch lesen)

Design wallcoverings have made a triumphant return to interior design, adding depth, texture, colour and personality to homes. The right covering can transform a space from ordinary to extraordinary, evoking emotions and making it a powerful tool for decorators. 

With my clients I work almost exclusively with Glamora and Inkiostrio Bianco design wallpapers. Why? All their designs are more than only wall coverings, they are works of art transforming rooms into worlds, bringing spaces to life.

Each wallpaper is tailored specifically to the customer space and visualisations are always part of the project. 

Choosing the right wallcovering can be a daunting task with the myriad of options available. In this guide, we will explore 4 essential tips to help you select the ideal wallcovering for your home decor. 

The first step in choosing the right wallcovering is to consider your personal style and the vision you have for your space. Reflect on the mood and ambiance you want to create. Are you looking for a bold and vibrant statement, or do you prefer a more subtle and tranquil atmosphere? Your style preference could range from classic and timeless to contemporary and eclectic.

Tip 1: Begin by identifying your preferred color palette, patterns, and motifs

If you’re drawn to nature, botanical or floral wallcoverings may be a great fit. For a touch of luxury, metallic or textured wallcoverings can work wonders. Understanding your style will help narrow down your choices. Once you’ve defined patterns and motifs, ensure that your chosen style aligns with the architecture and existing elements of your home. While you can certainly mix styles, achieving cohesion is essential. Elements like flooring, lighting fixtures, and architectural details should complement your chosen style.

Tip 2: Assess Your Space 

Consider the architecture and size of your space. Some styles, like minimalism or Scandinavian, work well in small apartments, emphasizing functionality and space optimization. Larger spaces may accommodate more elaborate designs, like traditional or eclectic wallcovering motifs.

Tip 3: Consider the room’s usage 

For high-traffic areas like the kitchen or hallway, vinyl or washable wallcoverings are excellent choices, as they are easy to clean and durable. In bedrooms or living rooms, where durability is less of a concern, you can explore more delicate materials like silk for added luxury. 

Tip 4: Seek professional advice 

As an interior designer, I can help you translate your style preferences into a cohesive design plan with visualizations prior to each project. I can also provide valuable insights and introduce you to styles you might not have considered. 

Conclusion: Choosing the right wallcovering style is a journey that involves self-discovery and creative exploration. With the right approach and help, your home can become a true reflection of your personality and a welcoming space where you love to spend time.
