IF YOU'RE thinking of wallpapering your home in 2010, you'll be spoilt for choice with a huge array of patterns and colours. The mantra 'bold is better' will continue into next year with key trends encompassing: shimmering metallics, bold blossoms, new oriental, chintz revival, Indian Summer and textured weaves. It's hard to believe that just a few years ago wallpaper sales had plummeted and paint reigned supreme. Now it seems things have come full cycle and most homeowners are experimenting with adventurous wallpaper to personalise their homes.

Here's a few new designs to give you some inspiration.

1) Nina Campbell's take on the chintz revival is the Orchard Blossom collection - a pretty mix of branches and blossoms that's reminiscent of the Laura Ashley country cottage-style of the 80s. It's pounds 49.35 per roll. Visit or 2) A more affordable brand, Graham & Brown has come up with Desire, a modern take on the classic damask in bold fashion-led colours. It comes in five colours but is pictured here in teal/gold at pounds 30 per roll. For stockists visit 3) Osborne and Little's latest offering is an Indian-inspired range by photographer and artist Henry Wilson. The Banswara pattern features clipped foliage in a peacock urn in shimmering colours. It's pounds 45.24 per roll. Visit or 4) The new oriental trend has a far eastern flavour with a modern twist. A perfect example is Bird Song from Nono's Wallpower Unlimited collection. It's more a piece of wall art than wallpaper and is sold as a 372cm by 280cm panel at pounds 325.
