It’s that time of year again when we start predicting which wallpaper trends will be big in the New Year. 2021 was a great time for interior design, but we are even more excited about what 2022 has in store!

In 2021, we saw a huge hype for panel wallpaper, geometrics, florals, maximalist designs and  chionserie. This year, murals are going to play a key part in wallpaper trends, as well as greens, earthy colours and retro designs.

We have put together some designs in anticipation of which wallpapers will be trending in 2022, so that you can be completely up to date! Inevitably, the wallpaper trends will be influenced by what the designers make in 2022, as well as consumer preferences.


Trend 1: Wall Murals

In 2022, the same old pattern repeats just won’t cut it anymore. Wall murals with beautiful intricate scenes will be very popular in the year ahead. If you are not sure exactly what a wall mural is (don’t worry, I didn’t know either), it is a large piece of artwork which is pasted onto the wall in the same way that wallpaper is. However, instead of having a typical pattern, it has a whole scene that fits together like a puzzle on your wall.

Benefits of having a wall mural:

So what is the benefit of investing in a wall mural? Well, they are eye-catching, make a statement in the room, work in any location and give you plenty to look at.

So, here are a few stunning wall murals that we sell on our website...
