Wallpaper

Florals in the home needn’t be ultra-soft and feminine, nor reminiscent of the ‘good room’ at your grandparent’s house. The walls in the home of photographer Martyn Thompson and his partner, artist Dove Drury Hornbuckle prove that in abstract forms and rich jewel tones, florals can take a room to moody, dramatic heights.

For a more loose, crafty vibe, take a cue from the home of Melbourne-based creative Paula Mills and her family, where layers of vintage floral prints and wallpaper lend a brilliantly eclectic, textured look.

If you’re not afraid of making a statement, choose unapologetic bold floral wallpaper – we love the brilliant vintage wallpapers in the Sydney home of Karen Julian and her family. There’s also endless inspiration to be found at Halcyon House, designed by Brisbane interior designer Anna Spiro, which brings together a diverse yet complementary range of floral wallpapers and textiles, creating interiors which are at once classic and contemporary.
