Looking for feature wallpaper ideas? Look no further! There are so many ways to bring the magic of wallpaper to your home, so we’re sharing some of our top wallpaper décor ideas, tips and tricks to help inspire your next project, plus we share our insights on choosing the perfect bathroom wallpaper…
1 – Why Only Have One Wallpaper When
You Can Have Two?
Double the fun with our Crane Fonda wallpaper in this bathroom.
Use contrasting colours in the same print for added design detail and maximum wallpaper magic, expertly executed by our good friends over at Always Sunday House
. Lexi has combined our Crane Fonda
wallpapers in Soft Copper and Black Gold for an extra Divine and Savage twist in her girl’s bathroom. We love this design trick, it’s at once playful and at the same time sophisticated – a different take on a classic monochrome scheme and rather than using a standard black and white wallpaper, this has a decadent edge to it. Also note the perfect pattern matching on the two halves…it’s these small design details that count!
2 – Always Look Up
Don’t forget about the ceiling when it comes to creating some wallpaper magic! If you love a bit of Gatsby glamour, then you'll absolutely adore these examples with our Art Deco inspired wallpaper - Deco Martini.
transformed her kitchen using our ‘Arsenic’ colourway on her ceiling. Kitchens can sometimes have limited wall space due to cabinets, so if you need to get your pattern fix in, your ceiling is the way to go.

Another fine example of the so-called ‘Fifth Wall’ is from Dani Dazey
, who created a cosy yet vibrant space with our ‘Rose Gold’ wallpaper. Beautifully framed using architrave for an extra decorative design detail, we love how this particular use of our metallic wallpaper bounces the light from those gorgeously
retro ceiling pendants.

used our Midnight Gold version on the ceiling of this beautiful home office, bringing an unexpected dose of Art Deco pattern and elegance to this room.

3 – Not Just For Walls (Or Ceilings)
Get upcycling, perfect for making good use of offcuts of wallpaper.
We’ve seen some fantastically creative examples of using our wallpaper on furniture. If you aren’t in a position to get pasting the walls, then you can still get your pattern fix. Look at adding some wallpaper to furniture – whether it’s on tables, sideboards, cocktail cabinets - you name it you can do it. We’re big fans of Kooki Wood
who’s created some stunning pieces, like this fabulous cocktail cabinet in our Deco Martini Rose Gold
, and this G Plan display cabinet adorned with our Cattitude
4 – The Rise of the Bold Bathroom
We are here for this and love seeing so many of you embracing bold pattern in the bathroom with wallpaper! Wallpaper helps you to create maximum impact in what is likely to be the smallest room in your house, plus it's the room all guests are bound to see when they pop over, so it’s your chance to have a bit of
fun and experiment.
We particularly love this bathroom designed by Wolfe Interiors
using our Safari Soiree
wallpaper in Forest Green paired with luxe brass details and
deep green tiles.

We love tiling and wallpaper, it’s the perfect combination for a bathroom – both practically and aesthetically. Ca’ Pietra
have some gorgeous options and this bathroom with our Kyoto Blossom
wallpaper in Lotus Pink and their Butler floor tiles create a statement ‘design moment’ that’s both eye-catching and elegant.

There’s plenty of tips on how to install wallpaper in a bathroom on our previous blog post here
– you can pair wallpaper with tiling or panelling below to avoid 'danger/splash zones', plus you can always grab some Decorator’s Varnish and seal it all in for a perfect finish. We’d recommend the matt varnish which dries pretty much invisible.
We hope you’ve found some inspiration to get conjuring some wallpaper magic in your home! Remember to tag Divine Savages
in your projects so we can share your alchemy with everyone next time!
