We have always loved dark and dramatic walls, and they are definitely on-trend now. Deep, rich backgrounds lend an air of drama and sophistication to any room and give the space a strong identity and real sense of character. This is especially true of these moody florals which are reminiscent of still life paintings from Dutch Masters of the Golden Age. Oversized and printed on a background of decadently deep shades, these wallpapers are not for everyone, but they are truly beautiful. Somehow, they are traditional, yet modern and luxurious, and they are clearly not your grandmother’s wallpapers. They can make a major statement in a small powder room or can be used as an accent wall in a living room or behind a bed in the master bedroom.
Here are a few of our favorites.
