Bringing the outdoors in

When it comes to nature, it’s not just about being outside – even viewing scenes of nature can help to reduce negative feelings, and even increase feelings of calm and overall happiness. With everyone currently spending a lot more time indoors we’ve got some top tips on how-to bring the joy of the outdoors inside.

Plant life

Indoor plants are perfect for every room, from the high humidity of the bathroom to sunny open-plan lounges. If you’re not particularly green-fingered look for low-maintenance plants such as lavender, aloe or a stunning peace lily or two.

Such pretty colours work brilliantly against a neutral background. Contrast the stunning greens, purples and pinks against a neutral wallpaper such as gold or silver to compliment the nature aesthetic.

Love a leafy wall

Potted plants aren’t the only way to give your decor more of a nature-inspired vibe. From traditional tropical colours to bold and modern alternative colour schemes, leaf wallpaper designs are a great choice. One of our favourite combinations is green and soft pink. Do a playful take on the green wallpaper trend with coordinating accessories, such as this funky monkey lamp!

A modern take

Looking for a modern take on the natural trend? Why not work a little monochrome magic into your interior design! This new take on nature provides the ideal background for a variety of colours and styles, making it a fantastic feature wall option.

Whether you choose a traditional take with blooming roses, or a cool and contemporary banana leaf design, making black and white your wallpaper of choice can open the door to a whole rainbow of colourful accessories!

Best of both worlds

Of course, when it comes to nature, it doesn’t have to be an either or. Fresh leaf wallpaper prints plus eye-catching plants can add up to a cool, calm and serene space, perfect for a home office. Make this look work for you by ensuring neutral furniture and accessories made from natural materials complete the decor. After all, there’s a reason scandi-cool has been one of the biggest styles hits in the last few years – combine it with botanical wallpaper prints and rack up the likes!

Have a monochrome moment

When it comes to an interior style that works for every major trend, it’s difficult to imagine a more perfect pairing than black and white. This classic combination works with a whole host of accent colours, meaning switching your whole room look could be as simple as switching up a few accessories. Not sure if Monochrome is for you? Let us show you how to make it work for every trend…from the ever-popular scandi wallpaper trend, or industrial, to floral, wildlife and full-on glamour.

Follow our style tips and have yourself a monochrome wallpaper moment!

Black and white…and scandi 
Bringing a little nature into the home has a huge number of benefits, something we touched upon in our tropical style guide. The scandi trend is all about calming tones peppered with natural fibres and earthy prints. Think yellows and greens, all set against a stunning neutral black and white banana leaf print wallpaper.


Black and white…and industrial
One of the reasons black and white prints work so well together is the sharp contrast of the colours. What better way to highlight this than with a crisp geometric print wallpaper, such as the Wingate in mono. The sharp shapes in the print perfectly match with staple industrial accessories such as brown leather and black metal.

Black and white…and floral
Of course, monochrome doesn’t need to be angular to draw attention. Saturated floral prints can look amazing when teamed against a backdrop of rich, luxurious fabrics in complementary shades. Making charcoal wallpaper work in floral shades, like this Midnight Floral Mono shows that black and white is anything but a plain and simple shade combo! 


Black and white…and wildlife
When it comes to interior decoration, taking a walk on the wild side can involve stunning colours and intricate patterns…which can make matching colours a real headache! The answer? Monochrome! Combine the wonderful patterns of animal prints in a black and white colour scheme. Our Dalmatian Print wallpaper makes coordination a sinch and brings a grown-up edge to the most playful of looks! 


Black and white…and full-on glamour
From timeless black and white films to the little black dress and pearl combo, monochrome has long been associated with glamour and style…Play to this with bold patterns in rooms designed to be a little indulgent and fun, including dressing rooms and bathrooms. We love the use of Nordic Geometric Mono to create a space that brings old school Hollywood right up-to-date.

Home office looks to love

Whether you work from home on a regular basis, or it’s your first time doing so, we’re sure you’ll agree that having a dedicated place in the house for the 9-5 can make a huge difference to your productivity, your focus and even your daily stress levels!

A great starting point for your home office is to think about what you need for the role that you do. Then add your own personal style! 

It’s also important to consider where your home office is located. Are you lucky enough to have a whole room dedicated as an office? Does it double as a playroom for the kids, a dressing room or even a spare room for overnight guests? All these things need to be taken into account when deciding on the perfect wallpaper for your home office… (and it goes without saying you want a space that looks amazing on that daily video call!)

Go for pattern

Who wants to spend time staring at a blank wall?! Create a stylish feature wall for your office with a bold print in pared back colours, to create a fantastic look without fear of distraction. Complete your look with home office accessories that tie into one of the year’s biggest trends, in this case an uplifting spring Scandinavian vibe with plants and natural-look fabrics.

If your home office is more nook than room, maximising space is vital! And it’s important to create a look that works with the overall room. Achieve this easily with an industrial-style wallpaper that tones back the pattern and turns up the shine. 

We’re a huge fan of the way Milan Metallic wallpaper in Neutral & Gold is used so stylishly by @mrs_rackley.home to create her home office space. The clever use of storage doesn’t distract from the subtle pattern, while the colours perfectly complement the overall room decor, seamlessly blending work and home life looks!   

The new neutral

If anything is going to uplift your workspace it’s bright colours and the beauty of nature. Creating a nature-inspired home office can be done in different ways, utilising pretty plain wallpaper or a subtly incorporated silver wallpaper. We love the way that @mybudgethome has achieved this look, cleverly incorporating the Venice Industrial Metallic wallpaper to boost her accessories and give the wall an overall ‘finished’ look that a plain white wall would struggle to achieve.

Create your own geometric wall art

From simple shapes to the most complex of designs, 2020 is undoubtedly the year of the geometric print. We have everything you need to recreate this stunning look for yourself…Ready to get started?

1 – Pick a colour scheme

From a cool and minimalistic grey geometric wallpaper to a bright, multi-coloured look. The first big decision when it comes to creating a geometric wall design is to consider your colours! We’ve put together a guide to some of our favourite colour combinations, which is your favourite?

2 – Map out your pattern

Once you’ve decided a colour scheme the next job is to map out your pattern using masking tape. Make sure your wall is prepped to paint (i.e. that every nook and hole is filled and the surface is sugar scrubbed) and have fun playing with a pattern! For maximum impact go for triangles of all different sizes and adding some inside others.

While mapping out the pattern of a piece of paper can help, have fun and don’t be afraid to add and remove the masking tape, standing back and picturing the final effect before you finalise your design. 

Once it’s complete make sure there are no gaps between your tape that would allow colours to run into one another.

3 – Get painting

We suggest going for your brightest colour first and allowing it to dry before then incorporating your supporting colours. Use a brush to carefully fill in the edges of your shape before completing the middle with a roller for a smooth overall finish.

4 – Peel to reveal

Once the paint is dry it’s time to unveil your masterpiece! Whether you’ve taken inspiration from blue geometric wallpaper, pink geometric wallpaper or even gone for vintage-inspired colours and elaborate patterns, peeling is a crucial stage.

Firstly ensure the paint is fully dry in all areas to prevent any leakage in the pattern. Next, peel away the tape at 45-degree angle for the smoothest finish and admire your handiwork! Don’t forget to share your finished creations with us on our social channels, just tag @ilovewallpaper.co.uk. 

Love the idea of the geometric look but not sure you can pull-off the DIY? Don’t worry we’ve got a stunning range of geometric wallpapers in all colours and designs to make your walls pop!

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

For April Fools Day 2020 we took it up a notch with a whole host of new ‘trends’. We decided to bring forward the launch of some of our most anticipated products to date…..to April 1st (big clue?!) Take a look at the products, descriptions and images we made up for the day – were you fooled?

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!
