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?
Here we are...2020! The start of a new year is like a breath of fresh air as it marks the perfect excuse to create new goals for yourself, however big or small. Nevertheless, if goal-setting is not at the top of your list, how about a revamp? If you ever needed an excuse to redecorate the living room, or add a sparkle to your living room, now is a better time than any.
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.

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.
