Trend: Wallpaper

I never thought I'd see it, but wallpaper is back. Don't worry about a resurgence of ivy borders and hearts and bears, the new wallpaper is heavy on geometrics and arts and crafts revivals. There is also a leaning towards interactive wallpaper. 2 Jane features four wallpaper-by-numbers designs that take the paint by numbers concept to the max. I'm not too keen on the idea of painting in all these little designs myself, but it could be relaxing to some.

Another interesting product is Graham and Brown's Frames wallpaper, created by artists Wood and Taylor. This paper allows you to completely customize your room design with art and photos. If you hate dusting picture frames, but are tired of listening to your family complain that you don't have their pictures up, this may be for you.
