Wallpaper technology has come a long way of late with digital printing enabling the most incredible designs; in particular the ability to realistically mimic everything from brickwork and wooden slats to a full-on rainforest or Georgian panelling. These are our favourites...
1 Concrete To add a touch of industrial chic to any space. But be sure to pair it with warm woods to avoid it being too cold. Concrete Wall
2 Wooden panelling To add instant history, depth and wonderful warmth. Best confined to a single feature wall. Regent Oak Paneling
3 Distressed wood The original faux wallpaper by Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek, perfect for adding a touch of the Scandi natural vibe or seaside to any space. And available now in many colour variations. Can’t be beaten for quality and effect. Scrapwood
4 Scenes of nature Add some instant greenery and a view to any wall, as gazing upon nature is your fast track to happiness. Forest papers
5 Deluxe reliefs If you really want to go to town on the faux finish front, then Italian brand Wall & Deco are your one-stop quality shop. They even make papers suitable for use in the bathroom! Deluxe designs
6 Tin plate For an instant injection of hyper cool New York loft, why not put this across your ceiling? Tin plate
7 Metal works And finally, for something more unusual, why not bring the outside in with a wall of faux ironwork. A lot easier to maintain than the real thing! Metal works
