Interior design trends 2020: nature inspired wallpaper

Posted by for Life

Nature inspired wallpaper is the interior design trend we’re coveting right now.

Public service announcement: wallpaper is making a comeback. 

That’s right – when redecorating, you no longer need associate the word wallpaper with the garish stuff used in the 70s, or indeed the past-it florals on display at your nan’s house. Instead, imagine creating the feel of a luxury, boutique hotel in your own home through the use of hand painted, statement wallpaper. 

Whether it be a ‘mural’ look, with one strip of carefully chosen, illustrative paper, or an eccentric all-over pattern, wallpaper is giving our homes the character we’re craving.

But if you really want to give this trend wings, opt for a design inspired by nature. From calming seaside scenes to opulent palms and elegant birds, the natural world is the best muse and brings a little of the outside in. 

Predictably, blues and greens are a big part of this trend, which is great news for those looking to create a soothing vibe in their abode. But equally, we love the playfulness of pink. 

See below for six truly gorgeous nature inspired wallpaper designs to transform your home. 

  • Anthropologie Leopards wallpaper

    Nature inspired wallpaper: Anthropologie

    Anthropologie proves its decor prowess once again with this stylish leopard-printed wallpaper. 

    We love the pale grey-blue in this design, but there’s also a vivid orange and dark grey contrast on offer if you want something more striking.

  • House of Hackney Palmeral Magna wallpaper

    Nature inspired wallpaper: House of Hackney

    House of Hackney is known for its endless patterns and prints which adorn wallpaper, fabrics and soft furnishings to boot. 

    The brand has lots of designs that revolve around nature, from eccentric florals to birds and beasts. But we particularly love this Palmeral print, which is considered to be one of its most famous.

  • Maison C Tancho wallpaper

    Nature inspired wallpaper: Maison C

    If you haven’t heard of this divine wallpaper brand before, you absolutely need to. 

    Inspired by literature, nature, fine art and fantasy, each whimsical design is hand-drawn and painted by one of the co-founders. 

    We adore this design which comes in mahogany, petrol, taupe, sage and goldwyn pink, but make sure you check out the ‘Coven’ print, too.
