Nature-inspired wallpapers to brighten up any room

While we still adore Scandi-inspired minimalism, there’s something to be said for having print and colour in our homes. Maybe it’s all the summery weather we’ve been having, but we’re thinking more about how to bring that outdoor feeling inside, especially for the days when the sun doesn’t shine. These wallpapers all take their inspiration from the natural world, from flamboyant florals to curious creatures.

Whale of a time

Proving that patterned wallpaper doesn’t have to mean shouty colours, these calming whales will make you think of rolling waves and sea-toned shades. Even better, this clever design is self-adhesive, and can be removed and repositioned without leaving a trace, perfect for rented homes or those of us who love to change things up. Whale self-adhesive wallpaper, from €32.51. Jumanjii, etsy.com

Dark & daring 

If, however, you’re not one to shy away from a little drama, then this House of Hackney design is the perfect combination of delicate flowers with a deep background. Dark colours can work well in any space, so don’t rule your home out just because you don’t have huge rooms. Poppium wallpaper, around €212 per roll.
