Wallpaper trends we love for Spring/Summer 2024

Whether you’re stamping your style on a new home, redecorating a cloakroom or hallway for a more striking look, or livening up your lounge with a feature wall, a wow-factor wallpaper will add flair to your home.

There’s such a huge choice of wallpaper available, it can be hard to choose. Here are our favourite wallpaper trends for Spring/Summer 2024.

Travel Map

This Travel Map wallpaper by Brand McKenzie (£249.00 per roll) showcases favourite destinations across the globe in a handpainted style design. It’s ideal for inspiring your next adventure to Spain, Italy or Australia, or bringing those vibrant locations into your home.

The whimsical design features historic landmarks and national symbols, from leaning towers and cathedrals to koalas and gondoliers. We love this for a feature wall, home office or study, a place to take a moment to daydream of future travels.

Jungle blues

We’re huge fans of design house Divine Savages at Good Homes, and their Spring/Summer 24 focus on decorating in blue and white is another winner. Or favourite is their Faunacation wallpaper in Bombay Blue (£150 per roll). Keep things wild with this jungle wallpaper design featuring tropical palms, lush foliage and big cats.

The Bombay Blue colourway features a heritage-inspired palette of soft cream and delicate blue. This makes for a timeless interior that still packs a punch with pattern, ideal for a kitchen or dining room.

When life gives you lemons

This fruit-themed mural will liven up any room in your home, but is particularly perfect for a kitchen or dining room. Wallpaper Mural

The made-to-measure lemon wallpaper mural by Uta Naumann is available at from £34/m2. It can be crafted onto a variety of wallpapers including paste the wall, and peel and stick that’s great for rented accommodation.

Good as gold

All that glitters is certainly gold when it comes to Daniel Bland’s debut collection of luxury wallpapers.

Daniel, a British gilder and gold leaf artist, is famed for his signature large-scale gold and copper interior schemes. He has now launched a range of wallpapers to bring the specialist craft of gilding into more homes. 

The collection of 17 beautiful papers combine rich copper, glimmering gold and earthy patterned wallcoverings. Inspired by metals in their purest form, the designs are available in mural form, pattern repeats, or smaller scale patterns for small spaces, above panelling or dado rails. 

Faded Grandeur by Bland Designs in copper and gold

“Gilding is the process of gold-leafing surfaces to give the appearance of solid gold, silver or copper. I’ve often been asked over the years whether there was a way of making this gilding effect more accessible. It’s been a long two years and a labour of love but I’m absolutely thrilled to bring homeowners an easy to use wallcovering so people can steal the style,” Daniel says. 

“The collection offers a new edge on wallpaper designs putting a modern twist on the metallics trend. I adore how these foil-based papers permit light to bounce around the room effortlessly regardless of whether you cover your walls or ceiling.”

Our fave is Faded Grandeur, a repeating mural wallpaper available in copper and gold (£395 per roll), and printed on a silver foil base with a soft patina to the metallic finish.

Stripes rule

We love the new So Stripey collection from Ohpopsi. This six-strong collection brings together statement stripes with bold and unapologetic colour schemes.

These joyful designs are perfect for bringing personality to any space.

Zoe Eaton, Creative Director of Ohpopsi, says, “There are no restrictions or rules so don’t hold back. Hang them horizontally, on ceilings or mix up colourways and create a personalised feature wall of stunning stripes.”

Our pick of the range is Bloc Stripe (£48 per roll), which juxtaposes classic stripes in unconventional colourways, making for a truly eye-catching design. The wallpaper is available in 8 colourways: Rich Teal (pictured), Chartreuse, Coral, Jade Blossom, Peach Puff, Bubblegum, Jade and Inky.

The Med

Add a holiday vibe to your home with this paper from Brand Mckenzie. The Mediterranean Wallpaper (£265.00 per roll) captures an idyllic hillside decorated with cobblestone paths and stairways.

In Lavender Rose, this wallpaper evokes the sun setting on the scene, casting its glow over the houses below. The bright yellows of the boats and lighting add to the early evening effect, making this a great choice for a bedroom or living room.

Tropical Chic Décor

We might be in the middle of winter, but according to wallpaper design house Ohpopsi, we’ll soon be reaching for the pina coladas and sunscreen. That’s thanks to the emerging Tropical Chic Décor trend for wallpaper.

Using data from Pinterest, Ohpopsi found searches for ‘Tropical Chic Décor’ have soared by 110%. Expect interior schemes full of palm leaves, warm colours and greenery.

“This new trend builds on the momentum gained by maximalism and biophilia, combining the best elements of both to bathe our homes in a warming, tropical glow,” says Zoe Eaton, Creative Director of Ohpopsi.

“Over the last few years, our homes have become our sanctuaries, our safe place from the outside world, and this trend elevates that feeling by channelling the escapism a tropical holiday brings.”

The Ohpopsi Urban Tropic wallpaper (£79 per roll), shown here in Tropical Bright, mixes tropical foliage, birds of paradise and glimpses of architectural structures and monochromatic elements. This pattern will bring an urban jungle feel into your home, juxtaposing worlds in a show-stopping contemporary paper.

Textured Palm (£199 per mural) is another bold and contemporary wallpaper from the design house. The large scale and multi-directional design sets layered tropical foliage against a contrasting sky, while filtered shards of light bring movement to the leaves.

For another touch of the tropics, Glasshouse (£79 per roll) layers hand-painted tropical plants with glimpses of glasshouse architecture peeking through the gaps. This wallpaper is inspired by Glasgow’s botanical gardens, and brings together the indoors and outdoors.

The geometric grid of the glasshouse windows contrast with the organic tropical leaves, resulting in lively blend of shape and form.

Sea shells

Another wallpaper trend we love for 2024 is coastal. Abigail Edwards has added a Shells Wallpaper to their collection of wallpapers, fabrics, tiles and rugs. 

With its hand-drawn seashells simply sketched by Abigail, this wallpaper invites you to rediscover the joy of listening to the whisper of waves while collecting shells on the beach. In subtle hues of peach, oyster and sandy neutrals, the colour palette evokes the tranquil coastal colours.

Close up, the paper features intricate patterns of scallop shells and cockles mixed with spirals of nautiluses, while from afar the wallpaper appears to be composed of playful stripes as the shells float in their mollusc groups.

Shells Wallpaper is available in four colourways: Scallop, Cockle, Ocean are all £118 a roll. Watercolour, which is printed from the original watercolour pencil sketch, is £198 a roll. Rolls are 10m long and 52cm wide.

Dark and sultry

Fiona Howard Wallpapers is championing the dark and sultry trend for 2024. The design house has a range of sumptuous wallpapers that will bring drama to your home with their warm dark tones of charcoal, blackcurrant and peat. 

With spots of contrast colour, these wallpapers will bring a bold and chic look to any room.
