Once out of style, wall covering has definitely made a comeback. And it’s nothing like what you remember seeing on grandma’s walls.

The 1960s and 1970s touted bright geometric patterned papers with pop-art designs. The mid-’80s through the 90’s ditched the idea of wall covering and instead, homeowners stripped their walls of it, creating a more minimalist aesthetic. While seagrass has hung in there through the years, a much bolder approach has entered the scene today.

While leading trends include murals, coverings with an aged elegance or gentle worn look, and textured looks, others are pushing the design envelope—adding graphic patterns and all sorts of tactile dimensions. In fact, most of our clients are asking for a bolder approach even in small spaces.

We love our client’s powder room that’s bursting with personality!


Add some pattern to your space, either in bold graphics or a subtle tone on tone.


Still light and bright, this trellis design adds pattern and interest to this white space.

Let loose and have a little pattern play in your space!
