The interior design scene is seeing a major resurgence of wallpaper of late, and we couldn’t be more excited about it. But make no mistake: this isn’t your grandmother’s wallpaper featuring the dated prints and heavy finishes of decades' past. Instead, the modern wallpaper trend is all about geometric patterns and fresh shapes full of satisfying symmetry.
And the best part about it is that there are a ton of different ways to incorporate it so it's suitable for any and every style sensibility. You can opt for a small but bold statement wall, you can paper your entire home floor-to-ceiling, or you can incorporate the ever-popular removable wallpaper that you switch and swap with the changing seasons.
The point is, the wallpaper possibilities are endless. And the spaces below will give you all the inspiration you need to make this trend your very own.
