These new styles of wallpaper and tile are the perfect way to refresh and reinvigorate your interiors. Go big—and go home.”
“Wallpaper has a magical quality, much more than paint. Through wallpaper you can transform a room in such an impactful way. Using wallpaper also helps add a dose of personality into a space, whatever your interior style,” says Jamie Watkins, co-founder of Divine Savages. [Image courtesy of Divine Savages]
Bold are Avalana Simpson’s designs for both wallpaper and murals. “As modern maximalism comes to the fore, people are learning to cherry-pick clashing patterns and colors to reflect their personality,” she observes. “Bespoke designer murals are unrivaled when it comes to adding something spectacular to your space.” Simpson’s hand-painted wallpaper designs include leopard print, tiger repeats, and zebra stripes, while her mural designs take in fantasy jungle scenes and black swans swimming on a gold background. “Cinematic mural designs offer depth of field and transport you somewhere different,” says Simpson.
