Bold wallpaper ideas: the best design accounts to follow for colourful, patterned wallpaper inspiration

·2-min read

Wallpaper has the power to completely transform a space.

It’s one of the most cost-effective ways of reinvigorating a tired room or adding oomph to a property lacking in character.

And, after spending more time than ever at home over the last year or so, you might be after a change of scene (or at least a more interesting background for work calls on Zoom).

With autumn incoming, there’s no better time to embrace your inner maximalist by dialing up the pattern and creating a cosy ambiance inside your home.

Right now? The trend is to go all-out, with bold floor-to-ceiling wallpaper designs and print clashes.

There’s no need to be a wallflower when it comes to wallpapering.

After some inspo? These IG accounts have got you (and your walls) covered.
