Reinvigorate your home with a fresh yet calm palette of pale green and soft beige. Found in nature, these airy shades are easy partners. Use an equal mix of the two, then add shots of bright white to stop them looking murky. Subtle colour rises need pattern for interest, so work in textural and botanical prints, and use faux or real flowers to underline the colour palettes natural inspiration.
Use an eye catching wallpaper to unify different living zones in an open plan space. Here, two separate seating areas are visually drawn together by a whimsical botanical print running around the entire circumference of the room. Paper from the dado rail upwards to prevent the scheme from becoming too busy, it is a sneaky way to save money on your scheme, too.

This is also a fantastic way to upcycle an old item that might otherwise end up at the tip. Go for wood or brick effect wallpaper for an on trend trompe loeil look.
