Our Top 10 Wallpapers To Create The Ultimate Feature Wall

If you’re looking to make a statement with your home decor that won’t overwhelm or interrupt your aesthetic, consider creating a feature wall! 

A feature wall, or accent wall, is a surefire way to create impact in a space without breaking the budget. Feature walls have made a real comeback over the last couple of years and they’re no longer created with just paint or wallpaper; modern feature wall design spans across a wide range of interior design trends, from biophilic living plant walls & natural textured walls, to modern heritage DIY wood panel walls. Wallpaper design has also moved with the times; with manufacturers consistently creating new designs to remain in line with trends.

Here at DCO HQ we like to keep our finger on the pulse of interior decor trends to share with you; so I’ve compiled this guide to our top 10 wallpapers to create the ultimate feature wall!


1. Take a trip to the Orient

Our Teshio Oriental Scalloped Pattern wallpaper is a uniquely elegant feature wall wallpaper; featuring oriental scenes such as houses, trees and mountains, set within a scallop pattern. Its intricate details are beautifully highlighted with metallic gold and acrylic texture, providing sophisticated dimension. This washable, textured wallpaper can be easily applied via paste the wall and comes in a selection of four rich colourways including plum, dove, navy and charcoal. 





 2. Keep your minimalist aesthetic flowing with a natural textured feature wall

It’s often thought that wallpaper for a feature wall needs to be bright & bold - this couldn’t be further from the truth! A feature wall simply needs to be an eye catching focal point in the room, meaning you can create your accent wall in even the most contemporary & minimalist spaces. By opting for a distressed, natural textured wallpaper like our Sierra Metallic Textured Concrete wallpaper, you create an impactful feature wall while keeping the space fresh. This washable wallpaper also has a natural metallic sheen which softly reflects light to create a warm ambience. With four colourways available including blush, silver, sage and dark silver, this intriguing wallpaper is guaranteed to bring character to any colour scheme!





3. Go back in time with a Retro alternative to geometric wallpaper design

Geometric wallpaper is still popular as ever and we absolutely adore our unique Venn Retro Geometric Printed wallpaper for it’s Retro twist on this trend! It features abstract shapes and has an acrylic stippled texture, adding extra character to its charming design! This eye catching, washable wallpaper is made with environmentally friendly, PVC-free eco foam and comes in a choice of three beautifully bold colourways: orange, blue or green. If you’re looking to inject some alternative glamour into your home, this unique abstract wallpaper has all of the glam and personality you could ask for!




4. Bring the outside in with an enchanting, botanical wallpaper

The pandemic has influenced us to be much more mindful of the impact that our home decor can have on our wellbeing. Spending so much time at home has allowed us to reassess our spaces from a completely different perspective, and many of us have needed to create more multifunctional spaces that cater to both work and leisure, such as home offices and home gyms. Our search for a harmonious home environment has led us back to our roots (pun intended) - bringing plants and organic textures into our homes to reconnect with nature and promote wellness! 

Inspired by real living plant walls, our Cascading Garden Botanical Leaf wallpaper is a breathtaking botanical wallpaper bursting with lush foliage. This romantic leaf wallpaper comes in four rich colourways to inject biophilic design into any colour scheme: navy, plum, green and crimson.




5. Go big & bold with tropical plants and jungle animals

If you’d like your feature wall to ooze character, our Comoro Tropical Window Design wallpaper is a lively jungle wallpaper design, featuring vibrant tropical plants and animals! Crowned lemurs and monkeys steal the show, while trailing green leaves and colourful lilies climb the wooden frame that they’re sitting on. If you peek through the window panes beyond the tropical leaves & florals, you can see the river and rainforest treetops in the distance. Available in a colour choice of navy, plum, black or light wood; this quirky wallpaper is perfect for creating an eye catching feature wall that will truly transport you to the tropics!





6. Embrace the DIY wood panelling trend

Marble wallpaper styles have been (understandably!) incredibly popular for some time now, ranging from inky marbled paint effects to natural marble stone effects. Our Semper Marble Metallic wallpaper is a fresh take on the marble wallpaper trend, incorporating elements of biophilic design with its organic texture that looks almost like the walls of a natural stone cave.
