The wallpaper revival isn’t going anywhere! While trends come and go, the wallpaper resurgence offers home designers unparalleled inspirations to create the home they’ve always envisioned. So, what’s big on the market in 2021? Here are our favorite wallpaper trends from this year, and our trends to look out for going into 2022.

Balancing Wallpaper Trends and Personal Style

It’s the age-old conundrum: trendy, or personal style? Looking back at this year’s wallpaper trends shows that you really can have the best of both worlds. 2021 delivered a vast array of options, suited to almost every home designer, covering a wide range of tones and textures. With so much on offer, your problem might be too many wallpaper choices.

Nevertheless, let your personal taste shine through in the choices you make. Your individual style sets your home apart, and the trends are here to inspire and provide you with options. The effect of wallpaper on your space is essential to consider when thinking about your home design. Are you looking for a statement wall or something to add subtle texture while not being overpowering? Using wallpaper wisely is the quickest way to bring extra life into your home.

The Trends of 2021

2021 has shown the continuation of old trends and the introduction of brand-new ones, expanding the style choices on the market. Here are some of our wallpaper highlights of the year, sure to live on into 2022.

Texture Focus

Unlike past years, texture plays an important role in current wallpaper trends. Mark Alexander wallcoverings have been at the forefront of the texture trend this year, with the Paperweave and Grasscloth collections offering natural sophistication and creative design. Paperweave is created with traditional Japanese techniques, handwoven to create subtle tonal differences that add depth.


Timelessly bold and beautiful, florals find their way into the trends most years. They help connect indoor and outdoor living areas, brightening up a room and providing a refreshing atmosphere. We’re seeing floral designs that are simple and lightly colored, as well as rich and bold jewel-toned masterpieces. We recommend soft floral patterns for bedrooms and opening up smaller spaces, and a bright statement floral wall for an aesthetic edge in larger spaces.


The term “abstract wallpaper” can wear many hats, but above all, it means something bold and expressive. These are absolutely statement pieces, letting your personality shine and your home design inspire.


Wall murals are more popular than ever, letting your walls tell a story and showcase art outside of a frame. This trend also closely aligns with popular animalistic prints. Arte Wallcoverings brings these trends together with the Menagerie of Extinct Animals, a stunning nature-focused work of art that’s sure to stand out.

Maximalist patterns also work excellently as wallpaper banners. Banners of a pattern can be placed horizontally in line with other furnishings, creating a strip of detail across a plain wall. If an entire wall covered in a busy print is overkill for your personal style, consider using a pattern you love as a highlight.

Looking Ahead To 2022

In 2022, we’re going to be seeing the continuation of textured textiles as wallpaper. Whether boldly patterned or single tone, the design depth of textured wallpaper is here to stay. Geometric designs remain a timeless design essential, with recent collections showing more bold and brightly colored offerings.

Florals and maximalist prints have been the trendsetters of this year— be bold! Find a pattern that inspires you and refresh your home’s style. Our Boca Raton interior design showroom can help you find the perfect wallpaper for your home, setting the backdrop for your style.
