Wallpapers come in so many varying patterns, colours and textures these days that design options are endless.
The beauty of wallpaper is its versatility. It can be put up and pulled down with relative ease and speed, and
the overall visual impact that a wallpaper provides can totally transform a room. Recently, we have seen trends leaning towards bold prints such as exotic birds, plants and large geometric patterns. Feature walls still seem to be quite popular and double-up as an artistic statement, giving the room an eye-catching focus. Placing a console table with a vase and perhaps a mirror on the feature wall can perfectly finish off the look and give a designer feel to the room. The same also goes for textured wallcoverings that add a touchy-feely dimension to a wall. Home & Lifestyle Magazine takes a look at the latest collections available on the Coast… The stunning Paris Green range from Glamora is a washable vinyl wallpaper available in various rich colours. It is water-resistant, eco-friendly and slightly embossed, giving it an impressive texture. Glamora is available from UDesign in San Pedro de Alcántara (www.udesign.es) and B&D Marbella in Pol. Ind. La Ermita in Marbella (www.bydmarbella.com).
