2024 Wallpaper Trends: Botanicals, Wood, Textures and Wallpaper on the Ceiling

In 2024, wallpaper is truly having its moment.

This year we’re seeing the return of materials and styles that speak to both tradition and modernity.

One of our favourite trends is wallpaper on the ceiling. Adorned ceilings feels like feature of a time gone by – we so seldom see this in houses now (unless you were lucky enough to nab a 100 year old house!).

Botanical prints and large jungle murals are bringing the serenity of nature indoors, while deep hues and a (surprising!) return of brown and sepia tones add depth and warmth to rooms.

Top wallpaper trends for 2024:

  1. Natural materials like wood, cladding and brick

Wallpapered crevices

This trend sees wallpaper being places in smaller crevices and joinery. Prints sit playfully inside bookshelves, behind kitchen splashbacks and inside panels and frames instead of spanning entire walls.
