8 Playful Wallpapers To Liven Up Your Walls

From abstract ink blots to comical cityscapes, patterns are embracing the lighter side. Familiar favourites return again and again, but this season sees florals move away from vibrant colours and over-blown prints to neater graphics in unexpected hues.

The classic toile presents with a twist: traditional scenes give way to kitsch with a hand-drawn feel. Avoid sensory overload and choose cool shades such as restful blues and smoky greys. Select a pattern that appeals to your sense of fun and apply with abandon. Here’s 8 playful prints to consider…
