{bold and beautiful wallpaper trends for 2015}

Wallpaper Wednesday: Hot Wallpaper Prints, Colors and Textures for 2015

Wallpaper continues to gain popularity with homeowners and designers. Here is our look at wallpaper trends for 2015 – the hot colors, prints and textures – from some of the top manufacturers.

Blue Mountain Wallcoverings

“2015 will bring the bold and the beautiful,” according to Blue Mountain Wallcoverings, with patterns on a larger scale and upbeat color pairings. “Blue Mountain’s 2015 collections boast a provocative and eclectic mix of large-scale patterns in sophisticated palettes of citron brights, classic neutrals and deep indigos, creating a home that is both playful and refined.”

York Wallcoverings

“Rich jewel tones have reached new pinnacles of popularity,” says Gina Shaw, vice president of new product development for York Wallcoverings. “Blue is stunning combined with analogous shades like teal and bottle green, as well as contrasting hues. It’s great for grounding an otherwise light and airy room.”

“We are increasingly finding new inspiration in opulent architecture and design rooted in the traditions of faraway places,” she says. “It’s become easier for people travel to exotic destinations and, by creating wallpapers with a global sensibility, we make it possible to bring a piece of those places home with them.”

Seabrook Wallcoverings

“Everything floral is in full bloom in fashion and interior design,” says Suzanne Ashley, director of product development for Seabrook Wallcoverings. “Look for an abundance of flowers in all varieties, styles, and scales to impact wallcovering, especially in watercolor techniques.” Additional influences include textures found in nature, from feathers and fossils to bamboo and cork.

Regarding color trends, she says, “the big story is BLUE – all shades. Most important is navy, with some calling it the new black. The newest blues are the deep shades – like marine blue, which is navy with a hint of green.”

Brewster Wallpaper

“Feature walls are a wonderful way for people to incorporate the colors and pattern that they love without overwhelming the room,” according to Brewster Wallpaper. “Feature walls are especially popular in the bedroom behind the bed, in dining rooms, nurseries, and used to create a special focal point in an entryway.” Brewster also says bright palettes, vivid florals, and modern geometrics will continue to be on trend, as well as global chic designs with exotic Moroccan influences.

Patton Wallpaper

Patton Wallpaper sees seafoam, aqua and light purple as trending colors for 2015, along with the classic neutral black. Gold and silver metallics add shiny accents to wallcovering patterns, or standing on their own, and ”vintage damasks are seeing a resurgence in popularity, along with florals.” Patton also sees surface prints, papers with a slight embossing or raised texture, as a trend in 2015., “and grasscloth is a classic that never goes out of style and always adds that extra layer of color and texture to a room.”

Washington Wallpaper

Lattices, damasks, and geometrics will be hot in 2015, according to Washington Wallpaper: “classic patterns that customers understand and look familiar to them, but are freshened up with a modern twist.” The updated textures show depth, which adds another layer of texture to a room without making a huge statement. “Grasscloth is huge, from tasteful naturals, to glammed up papers with a pearlized finish and metallic accents.”

Ontario Wallcoverings

Grasscloth is also one of the trends that Ontario Wallcoverings identified. “Grasscloth has always been a go-to wallpaper. We’re seeing a resurgence in its popularity with our current grasscloth book, and we’re working on the release of another grasscloth book this year.” In addition, Ontario sees another trend emerging: “We have also noticed that there has been a move from the traditional look to that of contemporary in many regions.”

Hot off the press is the launch of a new grasscloth collection from Thibaut and Hirshfield’s wallcovering people have given it an overwhelming stamp of approval.

Here’s what Thibaut has to say about their gorgeous new pattern book:

Thibaut introduces Grasscloth Resource Volume 3, a dynamic collection of grasses, raffia and paper weaves.  This vibrant collection includes grasscloths with printed geometric shapes, as well as colorful sisals and mylar papers with high-gloss metallic finishes.

There are so many rockin’ wallpapers available right now it makes my head spin. Traditional, European, retro, flocked, classic, vinyl, hand blocked, screen printed, transitional; wallpaper is very much in vogue.

The staff at Hirshfield’s Design Studio tell me naturals are trending: grasscloths, linen looking papers, bamboo, or silhouettes of nature, like trees and flowers. Also, for a single wall application (focal wall) geometric patterns and damask motifs are customer favorites. The wonderfully exotic Moroccan influence has been emerging over the past year and is now starting to appear in the wallpaper industry.

 Hirshfield’s carries an extensive wallpaper library in the majority of our stores. We offer wallpapers at all price points and have the most diverse selection of high-end or “to trade only” books in town. Our sales staff are wallpaper savvy and knowledgeable with every aspect of the world of wallpaper.

No other decorating product offers so much color, design and coverage to suit any mood, taste and need. Stop by your neighborhood Hirshfield’s and see for yourself all the exquisite wallcovering options.

{friday finds: the seamy side of grasscloth}

You have found the perfect grasscloth for your dining room. You’re ready to order, but first ask yourself if you’re able to embrace the idiosyncrasies of these natural beauties.

With grasscloth, natural or dyed, you will see seams when the paper is up on the wall. If the paneled effect bothers you then grasscloth is not for you. As we like to say in the business, “That’s the inherent beauty of grasscloth.” You won’t have as many seams with grasscloth, because it is 36″ wide compared to 20 1/2″ or 27″ wide standard wallpaper. Grasscloth is a natural fiber and there can be shading variations from roll to roll, even if it is dyed, you will see color variations.

With that being said, grasscloth is timeless and has been a favorite of designers for years. It brings another layer of texture, color, warmth, and in some cases, another pattern to a room. Grasscloth can be the rock star of a room or the back-up singer, the decision is up to you.

What are your feelings on grasscloth? Have you used it in your home? Do you prefer a natural color or a dyed version?

All papers are available at Hirshfield’s.

{beach inspiration}

As June turns into July, it seems the lazy days of summer are all too quickly passing us by. If you haven’t already, now is the time to fully embrace summer and draw inspiration from all it’s warmth and beauty to help carry you through that dreaded season that starts with a “W.”

Nothing says summer quite like a day spent at the beach, so for this post we wanted to highlight all the ways you can recreate a sunny day at the beach in your home.

We always like to start with color when designing a room. Warm, natural and muted colors all work well for creating a weathered beach look.

Natural elements like wood, grasscloth and stone all have comfortable, easy-going feel perfectly suited for a beach theme.

Erin Paige Pitts

In a recent article in the Washington Post, designer Erin Paige Pitts explains what colors work well when going for a coastal look:

Neutral colors, especially ones with a gray base. All of Benjamin Moore’s OC colors are neutrals with gray undertones. Neutral doesn’t always mean white.
