The beauty of wallpapers is that they can transform a room with very little effort and can be changed whenever you like. You can go for a statement design that will give the wow-factor or simply choose something that adds a general tone to the room. We have seen many of the big brands bringing out metallic collections in recent years as well as a multitude of different textured wallpapers that give that “touchable” feel.
The new “Thousand Li of Rivers and Mountains” design by De Gournay combines religion, history and mythology from Chinese murals and scrolls. The collection brings old traditions into the contemporary home. De Gournay is available from UDesign in San Pedro de Alcántara (www.udesign.es).
The Iron Grenade coloured wallpaper from Casamance’s copper range comes in various attractive colours. Casamance is available from UDesign in San Pedro de Alcántara (www.udesign.es), Cort Idea on the Mijas Road (www.cortidea.es) and the Marmorin Design & Property Center on Marbella’s Golden Mile (www.marmorindesigncenter.com).

The Feuille wallpaper by Farrow & Ball is a large-scale 1800s French jacquard leaf pattern that flows organically, creating an almost forest-like impression, and it comes in seven different colourways. Available from Tela Bella near Pol. Ind. Estepona (www.telabella.es).
The Équateur collection by French wallpaper and fabric giant Élitis puts a ray of sunshine into your room.

The Julian range from the new OUT SYSTEM™ collection by Wall & Deco offers a different way to decorate important external structural features that strengthen the wall’s surface on which it is applied. It is resistant to knocks, tears, abrasions, rain and UV rays. Available from UDesign in San Pedro de Alcántara (www.udesign.es).
The new Matrice collection enables Brondi and Rainò to explore the different effects that can be achieved with ceramic surfaces. The range is highlighted by perceptive and tactile qualities, taking concrete as its main inspiration. It is suitable for floors or walls – both indoors and outdoors. Concrete symbolises solid austerity with uncompromisingly modern architectural style (www.ceditceramiche.it).
