The wall design can do that Living space give a completely new effect. It speaks for the character of the host, determines the mood of the living space and colour also known to affect our emotions.

Living Coral and statement wallpapers are the wall design trends in 2019

The color institute Pantone has set the color of the year 2019 with "Living Coral". A lively orange with a coral undertone, inspired by the Creative industry, society and popular travel destinations. After “Greenery” and “Ultra Violet” in 2017 and 2018, Pantone has chosen “Living Coral” for the twentieth time as the color of the year.

If that is too glaring, you can also switch to the so-called "Ice Cream Colors". Pastel shades in pistachio, strawberry and mango are this year's trend in the interior sector. The designs bring a certain variety in the four walls and can be very beautifully combined.

Even so-called statement wallpapers will resurface at least since this year. Eye-catching wallpapers with large patterns put statements in our home and can even replace decorative elements.

Place emphasis on quality and longevity when choosing colors

Whether trendsetter or the classic white, it is important that the colors chosen for the design do not harm our health. Particular attention should be paid to the ingredients. Harmful chemicals, solvents, preservatives and softeners are not allowed on the list.

In some cases, these substances can cause allergies, skin rashes, respiratory problems and headaches, or even be carcinogenic in the long term. In particular, attention must be paid to a low VOC value (volatile organic compounds).
