Our homes are a reflection of ourselves and for a Black Southern Belle that is especially important. We choose the way they look, the finer details and colorful accents, and this in turn reflects who we are. When you personalize your home, you don’t just make it feel like your own, you make it look like an extension of yourself and that includes your wallpaper selection. Today we are giving you inspiration with 7 Wallpapers to Match Your Personality.
7 Wallpapers to Match Your Personality
Is that a paintable design on your walls? A white canvas simply waiting for the opportune moment to be transformed into a vibrant talking point, but not just yet! You want to keep your options open and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Textured paintable wallpaper is the perfect choice for those who want a new room design, but also have one eye on the future. By choosing a paintable wallpaper, you can easily give your home a brand new vibe if you suddenly feel like a change. A raised pattern like the one on this Curvy design makes a bold statement with slight shadows that form as the pattern dips inwards.
A durable wallpaper that stands on a thick base is perfect for walls that are a little uneven. If you’re new to decorating and you want to avoid the hassle of plastering wonky walls, this could be the wallpaper for you.
Do you prefer the finer things in life? Kick-start your productivity with stunning green walls. Nothing says luxury like regal damask wallpaper, and green has been psychologically proven to boost output in offices. Combine luxury and productivity for a look that shows your career-driven side, as well as your competitive nature.
This glorious Desire Teal wallpaper shows that you’re motivated, without being too intimidating. The fun colors will allow guests to relax and feel at ease.
This stunning Kelly’s Ikat design is sure to wow your guests and show your more refined side. This geometric pattern may be quite bold, but the deep blue hue brings a mature tone to the room.
Designed by Kelly Hoppen, you can be sure that this gorgeous, slightly textured wallpaper will provoke conversation. If you’re the type to have topical evening debates and dinner parties, this wallpaper would make a great addition to your home.
Nothing says classy and sophisticated better than a monochrome featured room. This stylish Majestic wallpaper design is perfect for those who take extra pride in their homes. A wallpaper that depicts a luxurious damask pattern, but uses a toned-down color palette, this design creates a stunning contrast in any home.
Effortlessly stylish, a monochrome design can easily be paired with matching soft furnishings that coordinate in color, for a modern finishing touch. Making smaller spaces seem bigger, black & white wallpaper can reinvigorate your living room and communal areas.
This damask wallpaper is easy to apply in an afternoon, as it is printed on Superfresco Easy rolls. With these, you paste the wall and not the paper, making it so much easier to apply.
If you have more of a flamboyant nature, you should play with large scale patterns and glorious, vibrant colors. Try not to mix too many bright colors at once, as this can come across as quite overpowering. This Paradise Garden Selaggio wallpaper designed by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen boasts big impact colors with a gorgeous white floral pattern.
While white may not seem too flamboyant, the contrast between the two colors makes each vine pop out from the canvas, capturing your attention and creating a finished look with depth. This floral wallpaper may display a bright, bold color, but the intricate leaves, flowers and vines show a more delicate side. This shows your guests that whilst you may be a little flamboyant, you still have a softer side.
Confidence doesn’t need striking colors or decadent patterns, and that’s where this gorgeous Quantum black & silver wallpaper comes in. A subtle change in texture across this patterned paper adds depth and creates a more intricate pattern as light and shadows stretch across the raised areas.
Shimmering glitter highlights the geometric pattern that inches across your walls. Perfect for kitchens and bathrooms, this stunning paper is washable and can be kept in excellent condition whatever little accidents occur.
Are you a go getter? Why not display your ambitious star quality with this amazing Stardust Midnight design? This stunning holographic design reminds you to shoot for the stars every day. Seek motivation and inspiration in the beautiful twinkle of this cosmic wallpaper.
The black wallpaper may look unsuspecting, but you just wait until the light hits the gorgeous pattern! Each foiled star beautifully reflects the light with illuminating rainbow streams. Easy to apply, this design is part of a paste the wall range and takes much less time to put up than your average wallpaper, so you’ll have more time to chase your dreams.
