Recently, after more than a decade of blank white walls and minimalism, wallpaper has made a grand comeback - and its popularity shows no signs of abating.
This stunning book gets to the heart of the exciting contemporary wallpaper scene. Dividing the book into the three main areas of design - pasted pictures, fabulous florals and architectural illusions each section starts with what is happening now, then traces the history back through the key moments, developments, designers and manufacturers to the origins of the style. New young designers and established manufacturers, funky new layered images and classic designs, the latest visual technology and hand-painted historical scenes.
Each section also explains how to use this type of wallpaper in a variety of ways and rooms to obtain different effects. Expert advice on working out color schemes, mixing florals with geometrics, using large and small prints, zoning and other techniques is included.
