Now that we have entered a brand new year it is time to review which trends we are leaving in 2019 and what styles we will be adopting in 2020. Since the festive season has now quietened and life is slowly but surely getting back into a routine it is the perfect time to assess the New Year in the world of home decor. What has been officially chosen as the colour of 2020? What simple decor changes shall we be making around the house?
The day has come. Your wallpaper has just arrived in the post. You’re staring at your blank wall... you’ve now realised that you have no idea how to put your new wallpaper up. After getting carried away scrolling through pages and pages of beautiful, high quality wallpaper, it’s easy to forget the reality of applying it to your walls. Luckily, that’s what the internet is for! Unfortunately we cannot crawl through the screen and help you put your fabulous paper up but we can sure give you some tips and tricks as to how to get started.
In this first blog post we’ll start with the tools you should consider getting to make your wallpapering experience go a lot more smoothly.
Today’s blog post gains its inspiration from a platform which us at World of Wallpaper are LOVING at the moment; Houzz. For those unfamiliar with the site, Houzz is an interior design, ‘social-media-like’ website used by homeowners looking for home decor inspiration, businesses exhibiting their design projects, and nosey people like me who just enjoy scrolling through pictures of other people’s immaculate homes. Not only can you get lost scrolling through people’s kitchens for hours, you can also get involved in discussions with professionals and other home-owners, exchanging words of advice for your own or others design projects.

Upcycling with Wallpaper
With growing environmental concerns, one of this year’s main focuses is to create less waste, especially through repurposing or recycling. This is perhaps why there is an ever-growing interest in upcycling. But what exactly is upcycling? Well, put simply, it is the process of repurposing and renovating old furniture or items to create new and often unique pieces. For example, by taking an old, marked bookcase and adding leftover wallpaper as a backing, you can revitalise the item and make it usable and stylish once again. In this post we are going to explore some creative and stylish ways to use wallpaper to upcycle items.
