Top 5 aesthetic wallpaper trends coming to 2022: our predictions

From back to nature (hello plant prints) to wildly 3D panoramic mural wallpapers, these are the 2022 trends coming to an interior near you.

The top 5 aesthetic wallpaper trends we predict for 2022:

  • Maximalism
  • Return to Nature
  • Panoramic Murals
  • Timeless Opulence
  • Trompe l’oeil

1. Maximalism

The minimalist aesthetic is so last year! Although the white and bright design trend has dominated for the last decade, we’re now seeing a major swing back from minimalism to maximalism. It’s time to go bold with colour, maximum design and a mixture of unique prints.

2. Return to Nature

We’ve all spent a lot of time indoors the past couple of years, so it’s all about bringing nature to you! Turn to foliage, botanicals and stone replica designs for daring splashes of nature’s colours. They’ll be sure to make an eye-catching impact.

3. Panoramic Murals

With a casual increase of over 300% in Google searches over the past year, it’s about time panoramic murals had their moment. Whether you have a large wall in your home screaming for personality or a vast office space that needs bringing to life, panoramic murals will answer all your vivid statement dreams.

4. Timeless Opulence

Just like vintage fashion makes its way into our modern-day wardrobes, timeless motifs and art deco return as the ‘clothing for our walls’. 2021 has seen this trend resurge in popularity and is looking to stick well into 2022. With a masterful blend of glamour, a little bit of drama and a lot of nostalgia, how could you go wrong?

5. Trompe L’oeil

The trompe l’oeil trend’s blend of raw materials such as stone, wood, concrete or brick has made quite the impact in 2021. It has meditated on technology and art to bring to life industrial-style decor and has added depth and character to many a room.

However, another ‘t’ trend, terrazzo, has dominated since it began its rivalry with marble many years ago. Since then, the beauty and textural quality of the coloured mineral chips have created a modern ambience in many homes and office spaces. And it doesn’t look like the trend is going away any time soon!
