Focus on Painterly Florals

Inspiring new designs from some of the biggest wallpaper brands, this pretty and artistic trend is the perfect choice for spring/summer 2017.  Painterly florals can be bold and bright for an eye-catching statement or soft and delicate for a more understated look. 

Designers Guild showcase their jewel like tones in these beautiful examples of the trend with a striking feminine feel. Try pairing these with paint or fabric in the brighter shades for a colourful contemporary look or match with muted neutrals to let the wallpaper shine.

Harlequin’s new Standing Ovation collection takes a more stylised approach with the abstract Exuberance paper with dragged watercolour blooms, the large scale floral trail Floreale and the pretty Salice paper with a hand painted look.

Subtle shades can be found in the beautiful Waterperry collection from Sanderson. Inspired by country gardens, the pallet focuses on lilacs, indigos, creams and mint with a soft painted finish. The collection includes wallpapers and large scale wall panels for those statement rooms. 

For those who would like a more contemporary design in softer shades, try the ornamental branches and flowers in Nina Campbell’s Perdana. Featuring shades of lilacs and greens, this printed paper resembles coloured crayon for a striking effect.  Alternatively, Albany offers a more romantic take on painterly floral theme with the soft pink Raipur Floral and the pretty Rose Floral. 

All of the above papers are available on wallpaperdirect alongside 12,000 other designs. To find your perfect paper, visit
