Home trends – Feature Walls

Feature walls are right on trend for interiors.  A simple but high impact means of changing a room feature walls look great whether it’s simply a contrasting colour, a patterned wallpaper to complement your decor or adding drama with a classic work of Art.

The idea of feature walls is to stand out but  you still need to consider how it ties with the theme of the home or space.  Ensure the design works with elements of colour or decorating motifs in soft furnishings for a co-ordinated look.

The opportunities for feature walls are endless from textures to complement the architecture of your building and replicate brick, metal or wooden textures like this room using Metal Plate  If you think wooden, metallic or brickwork textures may suit your space, view our Textures collection for inspiration.

Make your wall a canvas with a work of Art like this room which features The Siege and Release of Gibraltar by John Singleton Copley from our TATE collection of wall designs.  If you want to feature famous artwork whether classic or modern view our collection from TATE for inspiration.

It is important not to overwhelm the space with your choice of feature wall, ensure the rest of the decoration in the space complements rather than competes with the design.  A really great example of a high impact yet perfectly co-ordinated feature wall is this example using Redheads.
