If we generally consider fashion trends in interior design, they move towards simplicity, conciseness, and comfort. This determines the popularity of minimalism, Scandinavian style, the direction of lofts, and others, welcoming a large amount of free space. As for the wallpaper, in 2020, both ugly, imitating painted walls, and bright patterns are popular. Together with experts from ARS, we prepared a review of the TOP 3 trends in wallpapers that will be relevant for many more seasons in a row.
The trend for gradient transitions is observed not only in finishing materials but also in other aspects of life. For example, this is one of the most fashionable trends in a modern manicure. The transition from light to dark shades, and vice versa, is relevant. Here, designers do not set limits. Such wallpapers look very good in the interior of the living room, bedroom, and nursery. Alternatively, they can highlight the dining area in the kitchen or use it as a visual accent in the room. This wallpaper fits perfectly into minimalism, which does not imply the use of more than three shades. Gradient transitions seem to “blur” the same color, so they don’t look colorful.
Important: We recommend combining the gradient with the color of the ceiling (ideally, the shade of the roof should match the top shade of the gradient palette). This is necessary to maintain the visual integrity of the perception of space. The most daring can safely experiment with contrasting color gradients, in modern interiors, they also have a place to be.
Stylish Metallic Effect
Now more and more often, there is a graphical trend. This is expressed by the use of black and graphite elements in furniture, decoration, and accessories. A little “dilute” the asceticism of a strict design wallpaper with a metallic effect. They look amazing! Wallpaper can be matte, glossy, or embossed, but the rougher their texture, the more modern your interior will look.
Such wallpapers can be found in almost every interior of the inhabitants of Northern Scandinavia. Although in the Scandinavian style, monochromaticity is traced, wallpaper with large floral prints here acts as a visual accent. They well “refresh” the interior and are entirely consistent with the Scandinavian style.
