The Spring Essentials: Technology meets decor in our latest range!

It’s safe to say we’re all spending a lot more time inside the house at the moment! If you’re using this opportunity to take care of all of those DIY and decorating tasks you’ve been putting off for ages, you’re not alone! It might not feel like it at the moment but we are in the midst of spring and a new season brings a whole host of new trends. 

We’ve decided to bring forward the launch of some of our most anticipated products to date. Developed alongside our incredible design team, we’ve worked with decor experts across the globe to transform the way we decorate. 

Colour changing wallpaper

The only problem with this one is deciding when you want to change – after all, who could ever get bored with those beautiful botanical shades?! Happily, when you do decide to change it’s as simple as ‘wipe and start again’.

Ever find yourself wishing you could change your wallpaper without the hassle of paste and ladders? Using the same technology as heat changing mugs, we’ve developed our first colour changing wallpaper that uses ThermoChromic ink to bring this floral wallpaper to full bloom. The colour changes are dictated by the heat in the room, meaning it works best near windows or radiators for the full colour-changing impact. 

Tropical Trends

Tropical decor is showing no signs of going away, and in today’s climate who doesn’t want to pretend they’re relaxing on a tropical island? We’ve amped up our botanical collection to include an eco-friendly, washable wallpaper design in a stunning palm leaf. Washable wallpaper is the latest innovation to transform how to decorate. Manufactured using sustainable sugarcane paper (a by-product of sugar harvesting) it’s fully dissolvable when soaked with a warm, soapy sponge – meaning there’s zero waste.

The only problem with this one is deciding when you want to change – after all, who could ever get bored with those beautiful botanical shades?! Happily, when you do decide to change it’s as simple as ‘wipe and start again’.

Continuing our tropical theme, we’re excited to launch our very first floor paper! Yes, we’ve seen the uptake in at-home craft projects lately, from pinterest to One4, and when we saw our wallpaper being used as flooring in everything from playrooms to hallways, we decided to task our design team with creating a durable paper that would withstand the toughest of stomps and the highest of heels! If you have laminate, wooden or vinyl flooring, this paper can be placed directly on top for a smooth, level surface. 

Our floorpaper range has been manufactured using a high-density fibre base and protective vinyl top layer, which makes it suitable even for high traffic areas. 

We took our inspiration for this tropical flooring from one of our favourite interior design bloggers, Floral Poi. We let her test out the new tropical design in her Manchester home, and we love the result.

Get reflective, get crafty!

Finally, we’re expanding our paint collection to include our new favourite glamorous interior trend – mirrors. Mirrored furniture is definitely having a moment and is perfect for any contemporary space. Available exclusively at ILW, our patented mirrored paint allows you to create a full mirror wall with ease at a fraction of the cost of a real mirror. Developed using a high-opacity metallic compound, this paint can be applied with a brush or roller like normal paint and dries with a highly reflective finish.

If you’re not ready to do a full mirrored feature wall, this paint is also perfect for furniture painting! So, if you’ve been itching to upcycle that chest of drawers, now is definitely the time.

We want to see your home transformations! Don’t forget to tag us into your projects, we’ll feature the best ones on the ILW social pages so keep your eyes peeled! Happy decorating!

With the arrival of spring well on it’s way, there’s no surprise at the influx of botanical themed interiors. We nearly always associate bold floral prints with this time of the year, which is why we created the new Painterly Floral Collection.

This brand new collection has evolved from traditional floral wallpaper, and in its place a beautiful, delicate design. It’s hand painted elements welcome a light, airy, freshness to every home, bringing all association with Spring, inside.


Pretty, feminine and romantic is what springs to mind when designing the Painterly Collection. The hand-painted detail incorporated into this print inspired the collection’s name.

The Painterly Floral Collection comes in 3 complementary colour pallets: Grey, Navy & Monochrome. Each colour suited to any room.

This cute and classic flower wallpaper will bring a renewed style to your home. For added effect accessorise with floral print cushions, throws or bed linen. You could even get creative and upholster an old corner chair in a matching floral fabric.

Finding the perfect paint to pair with any of these colourways is such an easy task. Choose a colour within the design that you want to stand out or love the most, and begin paint matching!

We have a wide selection of delicate neutrals, pinks and yellow paints that will harmonically tone together with a feature wall for a classy finish.

Find the paint selection here, or message us on Instagram for a paint recommendation.

Our love for botanical wallpaper is explored within this exquisite collection, bringing a sense of calm and tranquillity to your home through a soft and charming floral print.

Tropical Style Guide: How to use jungle wallpaper designs in your home

Jungle and tropical prints are dominating interior trends already this year – and it’s only February! As predicted interior designers are turning to the wild side, and we have no issues adapting to it with our large range of Tropical Print Wallpaper.

Botanical, bright and bold, these wallpapers can thrive no matter the size of your room, or the style of your home. That’s why we’ve put together our top styling tips to help you introduce a little bit of the outdoors, indoors.

Combine Bold & Simple

Wonderfully bold prints are inspiring, and Tropical Print takes that category too. These designs definitely aren’t boring, they will bring any space to life by combining exterior with interior.

Just take a look at this stunning bedroom transformation with the Lucie Annabel Palma Tropical Wallpaper. The wallpaper here has been styled sophisticatedly to match the colours within the design.

By choosing the prominent green and matt grey accents, this room is left looking contemporary and elegant without too much fuss.

Colour blocking with paint

If you want to give your room a punch of colour and character, then colour blocking is the way forward. It is also so much easier if you use wallpaper.

By keeping your colour scheme similar, and adding a surprise splash of contrast, it will create vibrancy throughout.

Our tropical print wallpaper is often bright and brings a lot of colour to your walls, which is why it is an easy design to try this with.

Jungle themed rooms

The leafy outdoors is something that is guaranteed to make you feel calm and relaxed. Which is exactly why incorporating a botanical theme into your Nursery is a great idea!

Keep your little one at ease in a jungle themed bedroom. Pair wicker baskets, white wood furniture and indoor plants with the Palma Tropical Wallpaper for this jungle look.

Subtle Scandi

Scandinavian Interior has also risen amongst home trends. This very effortless style has been adapted to fit all homes.

Take a look at this beautiful botanical themed bathroom taken from a Victorian house. It has combined simple neutral tiles with organic wood furnishings for the complete scandi essence. 

The Palma Tropical Wallpaper lifts the mood in this space. It just goes to show you don’t need a lot of wallpaper to make an impact when it comes to the botanical look.

Tropical trend and wall panelling

Going tropical with your decor doesn’t always mean you have to paint every wall in vivid colours. Nor do you need to trade in sleek furniture for wicker pieces. In fact when it comes to adding a relaxed, vacation vibe to your home – less is more.

Use wall panelling to your advantage to keep a classic look. It also means you don’t have to decorate the full wall. Used sparingly it elevates the space, introducing character and stand out style.

Walk on the wild side

The bolder the better! Instead of styling your Tropical Print Wallpaper simplistically, match contrasting bright and bold accessories to highlight your favourite elements.

Embrace all types of colour for the perfect contrast. Look at how this bedroom looks with emerald green and blush pink accessories. This room is definitely a mood booster!

 For those looking to indulge a love of colour and pattern, these palm leaf wallpaper designs are perfect. The beautiful mixture of pink, blue and fresh green serve an exuberant focal point that are guaranteed to brighten any pad.

2020 Wallpaper Trends

When it comes to redecorating, it pays to stay ahead of the curve and approach your interior design with confidence. One way of doing this is to familiarise yourself with up and coming trends for 2020, figuring out exactly how and where you can incorporate new prints and colours into your home. 

Whether you’re working in wallpaper around an existing colour scheme or looking to completely change up the hues in your house, there’s a fantastic variety of fresh-looking prints that are sure to turn heads and transform your living space. 

Of course, the informed I Love Wallpaper team have had their eyes towards 2020 wallpaper trends for some time now. So, with the new year in full swing and the Christmas cobwebs well and truly brushed off, it’s time to take a look at our top four wallpaper trends for 2020. 

#1 Floral & Tropical Prints

We started to see floral wallpaper and tropical prints growing in popularity towards the back end of 2019, and these patterns show no signs of slowing down as we wade into the new decade. 

Being eco-conscious, planet-friendly and living much more sustainably are all key, global points at present, so letting nature into your home with foliage-based prints is most definitely in fashion. 

How bold and colourful you choose to be with your wallpaper is entirely up to you, but thankfully, there’s a huge range of options available for however daring or subdued you decide to go. 

Among our favourites is the Lucie Annabel Palma Tropical Wallpaper Navy, pictured above. Not only is this an ideal means of introducing more plant life into your living space, but you can effortlessly mix and match with ‘Classic Blue’, the Pantone colour of the year for 2020.

#2 Geometric & 3D Shapes

If you’re not afraid to go bold, then why not consider the inclusion of some geometric or three-dimensional wallpaper? Both styles lend themselves brilliantly to contemporary spaces, offering an often much-needed pop of texture against the smoothness of concrete, glass and steel and pale colour schemes. 

Intertwining patterns such as our Hexa Geometric Wallpaper (pictured) play on the eyes, drawing attention to your wall for all the right reasons and adding a different dimension to your living space. What’s more, they work amazingly well alongside modern materials such as copper, rose gold and bold, mix-match prints. 

#3 Metallic Effect

Contrary to popular belief, metallic wallpaper doesn’t have to be cold and clinical, in fact, it can be quite the opposite. Golds and coppers give off a natural warm glow, and you’ll find that both materials are in-trend and feature regularly in both contemporary and traditional furniture and accessories. 

Prints such as our Geneva Metallic Pink and Gold Wallpaper work wonderfully alongside warm colours, eye-catching accessories and bold, mixed prints. They’ll give your space an inviting, warm and textured aesthetic that you can’t help but sit back and relax in.

#4 Art Deco Inspiration

Retro inspiration is going to be rife among 2020 wallpaper trends, so get ready to see the appearance of art deco prints this year. The art deco style is incredibly adaptable, and though it’s synonymous with contemporary glass and steel, it also lends itself well to more rustic and traditional aesthetics too. 

Versatile wallpapers such as the Arthouse Deco Peacock pictured here sit comfortably with warm wools, woods and rich, earthy textures, while at the same time it’ll look just as great alongside sleek, modern furnishings.

2020 Colour Trends

As quickly as we watch another year go by, we also see colour trends change and give way to a whole host of new hues.

Last year saw the introduction of terracotta themes, olive greens, fiery reds and resplendent coral colours, but what decor colour trends are we likely to see as we head into a new decade? To help you stay ahead of the curve and keep your interiors aesthetics on-trend, we’ve put together a collection of paint that follows our favourite 2020 colour trends.

Natural Sage

Our biggest colour trend for 2020 is, without a doubt, going to be the tropical-yet-tranquil ‘Natural Sage’.

Natural Sage allows homeowners to reconnect with nature as well as each other, ignoring the chaotic cacophony of everyday life and turning your interior into a secluded retreat that’s free from stress. 

With a nod to natural landscapes as well as the environmental impact our technology and consumption is having on both ourselves and the planet, Natural Sage is the obvious choice for those looking to get back to basics in the utmost style. 

So, which other paint colours can you employ that will complement and work in tandem with Natural Sage? 

Calming Colours

While 2019 colour trends ramped up the shocking shades and vivid colours, 2020 will see many interior designs take a much calmer approach. 

Serene colour schemes are in, and at a time where many are worrying about the effects of technology and the feeling that it’s isolating us from one another, a return to natural shades could be welcomed.To combat this digital disillusion, I Love Wallpaper has picked a palette of calmer colours to persuade people to ditch their devices, take a step back and drink in their surroundings. Shades such as ‘Amphibious’, ‘Manhattan Grey’ and ‘White Lace’ perfectly complement Natural Sage, helping to create a calming, harmonious environment.

Peaceful Pastels

If you’re looking for a splash more colour, why not consider pairing Natural Sage with some peaceful pastel shades? 

Pastels provide a fantastic backdrop for bolder interior design additions and accessories. They allow your select pieces to do the talking while your walls do the leg work, providing a relaxing, pleasant space to sit back in and enjoy.We’ve picked out ‘Gentle Haven’, ‘Rosebud’ and ‘Blue Horizon’ as just three of the pastel colours that work amazingly well alongside Natural Sage.

Sonorous Shades

If pastels are a little light and summery for your taste, perhaps you can switch things up and redecorate with some richer colours? 

Using strong, full-bodied shades alongside the tranquil tones of Natural Sage produces some stunning results, creating a lavish interior space that’s laced with warm aesthetics. The ‘Amphibious’, ‘Mocha’ and ‘Teal Topaz’ paints available here at I Love Wallpaper lend themselves to create some truly decadent interior designs.

Additional Wallpaper Ideas

Of course, you don’t just have to stick to paint in order to work our colour trends for 2020 into your home’s interior. 

The nuanced tones of Natural Sage crop up in or complement many of our stunning wallpaper designs too. The likes of our Palma Tropical (pictured), Toile and Wildlife Animal Wallpaper from Lucie Annabel are just a few examples of eye-catching wallpapers that work wonderfully well with Natural Sage.

Bold Wallpapers for a Daring Bathroom

Long gone are the days where you’d only find boring paper lining a bathroom wall. It’s a room that was often guilty of being neglected, a room that was only visited out of necessity and not styled to be enjoyed. 

These days, people are beginning to appreciate their bathrooms, exploring different interior design options and revelling in discovering new design ideas to make the bathroom a place to relax and unwind. Bold wallpaper designs are bang on-trend at the moment, and there’s plenty of prints out there that can completely transform your bathroom’s aesthetics. Our clued-up I Love Wallpaper team have put together some interior inspiration with our list of unusual bathroom wallpaper designs and daring prints. 

Totally Tropical

Tropical is topical; right now tons of people are choosing to line their bathroom with tropical wallpaper, and it’s easy to see why! 

Designs such as the Lucie Annabel Palma Tropical Wallpaper come in four amazing colours, all of which can’t fail to add a splash of colour and a little of the exotic to your bathroom walls. 

The foliage works fantastically well aside crisp white tiles and softer complementary shades in your bathroom accessories. 

Magnificent Marble

Marble and ceramics are best friends, and matching up the two textures produces stunning results for your bathroom’s aesthetics. 

The opulence of marble and its clean appearance is perfect for pairing with clean white or ultra-modern grey tiling and luxurious linens, mixing together new and old themes.  

Marble wallpaper is also a fantastic way to achieve the positive effects of marbling without the price tag, and those frequenting your washroom will swear it’s the real thing!

The Feature Wall Effect

Feature walls aren’t reserved solely for your front room or bedroom, they’re a fantastic addition to the bathroom too. 

The bathroom often enjoys less space than other rooms in the house, and so papering all four walls can run the risk of looking a little “busy”. If you don’t have much room to play with, a feature wall is an ideal way around this interior obstacle, and a quirky bathroom wallpaper design can really break up the flat colours and neutral tones of your room.

Retro prints and geometric wallpaper are perfect for feature walls, with their bold shapes and vivid colours drawing attention for all the right reasons. You can also use it as a backdrop for furniture or a point of reference to mix and match the colour of your tiles and bathroom accessories.

Bathing in Baroque Style

Nothing says luxury and relaxation quite like incorporating the Baroque style into your bathroom. Sink back, take in your surroundings and you’d swear you were in a Roman bath or drinking in the ornate designs of seventeenth-century art and architecture. 

This bold style is perfect for those who like the finer things in life, and there’s no better way to complete a statement bathroom than lavishing your interior with some luxurious prints. 

Our Barocco Flowers Wallpaper is a stunning design that is sure to set off your high-end bathroom fixtures and provide the finishing touches with a plush bathroom print.

Let the Outside In

Introducing elements of nature and inspiration from the great outdoors is a great way to freshen up your bathroom, creating a clear, calm and airy aesthetic. 

Bird & butterfly prints and floral wallpaper are just two styles you can explore in order to incorporate an eye-catching, natural style into your bathroom. 

Papers such as our Tropicana Floral Leaf Wallpaper work brilliantly alongside tiles or wooden panels, and they’re a great way to tie in indoor planting and vibrant colour palettes too. 

Before You Go…

Ahead of setting about papering your chosen wallpaper style, it’s important that you consider the humidity of your bathroom. 

If conditions are too humid, the wallpaper may bubble or peel; you can combat this by investing in a specialist bathroom wallpaper that is washable and able to withstand moisture. If the wallpaper is not ready-made this way, coating your wallpaper with decorators varnish will seal the paper and allow for easy cleaning and protection against humidity.

It can be difficult to come up with new and exciting interior design ideas, especially in a world where social media is at the forefront of everyone’s minds, and snapping everything becomes part of your daily ritual. Scouring the internet for an idea that isn’t already trending can be quite the task.

Add Style to your Stairs

Green Wallpaper Designs by I Love Wallpaper

At first glance, the staircase can be quite a boring interior project, but thinking about alternative ways to use wallpaper, the stairs in your home can be a whole place to realise your interior design dreams! If you have a wooden staircase, why not brighten up the staircase itself with a variety of wallpaper designs? This wacky and wonderful idea might just be the creative spark you’ve been missing throughout your home.

However, it is important especially if you are getting super creative and mix-matching your prints with your interior design idea, to keep to a strict colour pallet.

The Tropicana Wallpaper in Ivory adds an airy flow, while the Morocco Trellis Wallpaper compliments those beautiful green tones. We think this range of natural colours work well together for an unexpected but attractive way to use wallpaper creatively.

A Showstopper Ceiling


Filigree Geometric Wallpaper Navy, Gold

Wallpapering your ceiling brings a lot of interest to an area that usually doesn’t have any sort of design or decoration. If done correctly, it can create a dynamic look that explores a whole new level of interior design.

Without a doubt, adding a patterned wallpaper to your ceiling is a very daring move. A few important factors to consider are the lighting, size and colours in the desired room. We suggest keeping to one solid colour on the walls to match the wallpaper is a more appropriate way of styling it. We have chosen cool blues for the walls for a classic geometric wallpaper ceiling look to match the Filigree Geometric Wallpaper in Navy and Gold.

Cover up your cupboard

Navy Wallpaper Designs by I Love Wallpaper

Up-cycling furniture has become an ever changing interior trend, and recently its popularity has hit new heights. Up-cycling can make room for alternative ways to use wallpaper and really add extra dimension to a project. If you’ve got an old chest of drawers, or cupboard that’s on its way out, then it’s time to get handy with some D.I.Y! This is not only a fantastic way to revamp old furniture, but the result is amazing and you’re left with your very own bespoke piece.

Mix and match your favourite navy designs to create a new contemporary and chic set of drawers.

A well-dressed wardrobe

Tropicana Wallpaper Ivory, Green

A plain wooden wardrobe can fade into the background in a bedroom. Transforming your wardrobe with a roll of wallpaper could just be the answer to turn it into a stylish feature and update your room without redecorating the whole space. Add a splash of paint and go all out with your choice.

A pop of colour and a contrasting design works wonderfully to bring a dull piece to life. A bold, tropical design such as the Tropicana Wallpaper is just the right amount of vibrance to do so.

Bookshelf envy

Cubic Shimmer Wallpaper Grey, Copper

A bookcase is an essential household piece, it tells a thousand stories and can be turned into a storage haven for all your little knick-knacks. We suggest transforming your traditional bookcase to a more contemporary design to fit your style.

Dress up your bookshelf and create an iconic stand out piece in your home. A geometric print will really add dimension to the background of the bookcase, bringing it to life.

How To Embrace The Colour Of The Year: Coral

Every year there is a colour that sweeps the interior design world up in its magic and 2019 is certainly no different. Whether you choose to adopt the popular colour wholeheartedly by decorating walls with it or prefer to let it influence your accent colours in the home, you’re bound to embrace its inspiration. Today at I Love Wallpaper we’re celebrating the official Pantone Colour of The Year – Living Coral and showing you how to incorporate this attractive shade into your home with coral paint colours and wallpapers.

Why Choose Coral?

According to the official Pantone description, Living Coral is ‘an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.’ It’s a lively shade that derives from the natural coral reefs beneath the sea, making it an appealing colour to choose when redecorating your home.

How To Bring Coral Into Your Home

Coral is a wonderfully versatile shade which could work wonderfully in any number of rooms in the home. It has the power to lighten up dark rooms during the winter months, and reflect the summer season perfectly! Brighten up a living room or dining room with a modern coral inspired painted wall using Johnstone’s Colour Vibe in Strawberry Daiquiri. The pinky toned coral paint can highlight a chimney breast or a window wall as a simple way to make an on-trend interior design statement.

From coral paint to coral wallpaper teamed with other complementary shades, a feature wall that includes this hue will ensure your home is keeping up to date with the latest interior design wallpaper trends. Coral can be teamed with a variety of other colours to create an attractive colour palette for a room. With a light coral and gold wallpaper in the bedroom, you can enjoy a luxurious look, whilst a coral and green combination gives real tropical vibes. However you choose to embrace the coral colour trend, it’ll give your home a stylish boost!

A Warm Colour Palette

A similar warm tone to coral is the more muted and mature Dulux Colour of 2019 – Spiced Honey. The light caramel shade is a lovely neutral hue that could add warmth to any plain wall, and promises a calming effect, making it an ideal shade for a living room. Providing the perfect backdrop to other rich colours, a wall spruced up with a spiced honey inspired shade will certainly fit into popular interior design trends for this year.

The rustic, bohemian interior design trend that we’re seeing lately can be easily achieved with plenty of natural fibre soft furnishings, leafy plants and a muted caramel painted wall in Johnstone’s Burnt Sugar. The caramel paint is also a great alternative shade for a teenage girl bedroom idea where more classic pink and purple shades aren’t welcome!
