Coming in at number one on the list of living room wallpaper ideas is 3D wallpaper, which has seen an increase of over 300% in Google searches between January and December 2020. ‘3D wallpaper designs will become a huge trend,’ says Alex Whitecroft, Head of Design at I Want Wallpaper. ‘As we look for creative ways to make our spaces feel bigger, expect to see giant wall murals which create an infinite effect and feeling of depth featuring tunnels, cityscapes and forests’.
Also on the rise are tropical, bamboo, animal print, botanical and scenic wallpapers, signifying that exotic adventures are moving indoors. ‘Since we haven’t been able to travel this year, many homeowners have sought ways to bring their holidays into the home,’ says Whitecroft. ‘Invigorating tropical styles – rich deep rainforest and jungle patterns – are a shorthand way to bring the world to you, while also suggesting a sense of the natural world which, for many in towns and cities, has felt very distant this year.’
