Wallpaper that wows as part of a layered interior

Featuring our current favourites from Artisan’s extensive collection as both serious statements and understated backdrops.

In association with Artisan.

Head in the clouds

Life is but a dream when you’re surrounded by Auckland designer Emma Hayes’ painterly wallpaper. Her designs abstracted from nature include the just-released Bloom (above left,
in Smoke), which features dynamic shapes that appear to billow and disperse, and Nebula (above, in Mist), a more expansive version of her popular Cloud design with a pearlescent
finish. Mural-style wallpapers such as these gently set the tone in a space, yet have an undeniable influence on your mood, helping you keep calm and carry on.

Extra texture

Subtly sensational, textured wallpaper isn’t the star of the show, but it’s a vital member of the supporting cast. This warm neutral scheme (right) features Madagascar wallpaper by Élitis, one of many the French maker creates with a chic 3D materiality, including rustic raffia and embroidered effects. Opt for it at your place to bring durable character and depth to a room.

Maximal botanical

Wall flowers but definitely not wallflowers, options like these by Cole & Son have a storybook quality — there’s something to be discovered with every glance. The London-based brand has been manufacturing printed wallpaper since 1875, its everlasting appeal lying in its ability to be statement (Midsummer Bloom, below) or sweet (Sweet Pea, below right), graphic or glamorous. Any which way, it’s a timeless pleasure that richly rewards those who embrace it.
