nature, wall covering design trend

Adopting the latest wall covering design trends can attract and retain clientele, residents, staff and guests by creating a point of difference.

Leading the way with state-of-the-art printing technology, we are seeing more and more pattern and colour specified, with a move toward warm and comfortable spaces and fewer white walls. Tropical landscapes, art deco, florals, abstracts, Aboriginal designs… The options are limitless to make a statement in any given space.

Not keen on dramatic visuals and don’t want to go too crazy? We cater for all tastes, styles and briefs and offer a wide range of neutrals.
