Let's look at which trends we see on the walls this summer.Soft and round shapesIn the large trend report for 2020, we could see a trend where furniture, armchairs, sofas and tables had clearly round, playful and soft shapes. Now we can also see that this trend has reached our walls and wallpaper!
Wallpaper gives you so many possibilities. They can transform a room in an instant, and bring a comfy and cozy feeling. Here are my 10 favorite wallpapers I'm really into now, and the rooms I'd put them in.I think the wallpaper Stunner Peachy could be super nice in a hall, who wouldn't want to see this as soon as you got home? I would be incredibly happy to see it, anyway. Or, why not have it on a wall in the living room? I think both areas would get a real lift with this wallpaper.
I think that at Christmas, all styles, colours and shapes are allowed. Sure, there are classic colour schemes like red and green, but I want to go off the beaten track and dare to mix it up with other colours. This year, for example, I fancy a Christmas with a pink/purple theme. But of course, with some classic features that keep that Christmas holiday feel. I'm planning to mix red, green, gold and natural materials with this year's favourites. I think it will be a wonderful Christmas.Fold a Stylish Paper Tree Quickly and EasilyDifficulty levelSimpleTime required10–15 minWhat you'll need:- Wallpaper or other thick paper- Barbecue skewer- Scissors/scalpel- Hole puncher or needle
Create a cosy autumn feeling with recycled candle stubsWe'll start with a DIY project that creates the perfect cosy feeling. I'm thinking candles! Is there anything that instantly creates more atmosphere than candles? You can easily make candles yourself if you have some old stubs at home. They're perfect for reusing and making new candles!Melt your old candles down in a bowl of water. Then attach a wick to the bottom of an old glass jar, try looking in the recycling, or grab the jar as soon as the last of the breakfast marmalade is used. Then pour your melted candle wax into the cleaned jar and let it solidify. If you want an extra fancy jar, you can cover it with some leftover wallpaper. Tie a small string around it for an extra stylish detail. Look around to see what you have at home and let your imagination flow. If you have any scented oils at home, you can put in a few drops in the melted candle wax and in a flash you have a scented candle.All kinds of old candles work so save them and mix them. Even if there's just a little wax left in the tray when a tea light is finished, you can save it and recycle it. Have a bag or jar in a cupboard where you put all the pieces, then just make a candle once it's full.
Personally, I like to treat myself with a nice new school kit before each new term. It can include colourful pens, new bookmarks, stylish notebooks or a new pen case. And much of this is easy to do yourself with the help of some wallpaper!
