Looks can deceive. A huge trend at the moment are the trompe d’oeuil wallpapers: optical illusions. Paper that looks like tiles, leather, concrete, wood or fabric. Wallpaper design houses Arte International, Elitis and Designers Guild are the most renowned distributors of these chic and creative wallpapers. However cheaper designs like the VT Wonen wallpaper collections are also breaking new ground and have introduced several designs that fit the trend.
The Andalusia tile wallpaper from Designer Guild suffused with the energy of the House of Lacroix. The tiles look as if they are corroded by the test of time. Another example of tile paper that looks corroded is the Merci Brooklyn collection.
The French brand Elitis has a variety of eye-deceiving wall papers like broken glass pieces or feathers.
Is it wood? No, it is really wallpaper. Vt Wonen’s scrapwood wallpaper or Piet Hein Eek‘s wooden planks, give a robust look to any space.
