Wallpaper has come a long way in recent years. There are so many styles and designs available that it can be quite literally mind blowing trying to decide on one. The trend for wallpaper has become even hotter with statement walls now a thing of the past and drenching now the coolest word on the street.
I love the word 'drenching'. It makes me think of interiors that are saturated in colour, submerged in dazzling patterns with unadulterated personality filling it to the brim. We are throwing away sharp edges and abandoning ourselves to homes that are suffused with colour, wrapping wallpaper around all four walls and sometimes even the ceiling!
Here are our top 10 picks of wallpapers that will have you 'cancelling' all the rules.
