Art house

Adorning the walls of city pads and country houses, statement wallpaper is back. Here's our pick of the latest collections, in a world created by celebrated paper artist Su Blackwell

Wallpaper is back on the scene. Be bold, be brave, and make your home unique.

The '70s were a riot of colour, pattern and texture. Wallpapers had their moment, pasted corner to corner and room to room.

Then came Magnolia and minimalism - making homes a blank canvas for art. But the trend for wallpaper has returned. "For instant glamour and a sense of opulence, try a flocked design," advises Tricia Guild (pictured right), creative director and founder of Designers Guild. "And don't feel limited by smaller rooms. Papers with illustrious or metallic effects can reflect natural light, and stripes really elongate a room."

This resurgence is boosted by some exciting design collaborations. Vivienne Westwood for Cole & Son, Kelly Hoppen for Graham & Brown, Matthew Williamson for Osborne & Little, and scores more are bringing high fashion into the home with their wallpapers. Embrace it. Forget the apologetic 'feature wall' and go bold.
