It’s no secret that wallpaper is back with a vengeance, and when it comes to finding the right selection for your interior, there are times when less is more. Today’s post is dedicated to minimalist wallpaper that makes a statement in a subtle way. From linear patterns to neutral tones, the options below are perfect for those who want the wallpaper to be one feature of the room rather than the main focus. Ready for a closer look?…

Abstract Designs

CB2’s Thatch Textured Self-Adhesive Wallpaper is designed by Chicago-based artist Noël Ashby. An abstract take on geometric design, the pattern features grey tones that create a soft statement. Plus, you’ve gotta love the fact that the wallpaper is removable!

Geometric Style

We now move from the abstract to the geometric with ferm LIVING’s Grid Wallpaper in dusty green and white, the perfect blend of precision and softness. Printed on WallSmart wallpaper (non-woven fleece), the pattern is irresistibly on-trend. Plus, WallSmart wallpaper is easy to hang! Isn’t it great when amazing design isn’t fussy?!
