Can we really go another year staring at boring white walls? This upcoming 2023, everyone is out with the old and in with the new, including interior designers. This year, experts are taking on the trends and making the leap from blank walls to something much more intriguing. Say goodbye to watching the painted walls dry and hello to a much more exciting trend – wallpaper. Let’s take a look at how top designers are incorporating the latest obsession into some of New York City’s hottest homes.
Looks like someone decided to move business over to the Upper West Side this season, and its name is textured wallpaper. Spotted within the walls of the iconic luxury condominium, The Astor, is a gorgeous corduroy material that lines its interior. Designed by AD100 design firm ASH Staging, the designers used the Philip Jeffries wallpaper to enhance the warmth and comfort of the historic home. Originally built by the Astor family in 1901, the texture balances the room’s traditional character with a contemporary feel.
Ombré Wallpaper — The Cortland
Making its way over to West Chelsea, are the designs of Rodney Lawrence. The home boasts a custom blue ombre wallpaper created by Trove. The soft gradient of the textile brings a brightness to the rooms while adding a seamless pop of color. The subtle boldness brings a fun uniqueness, making it perfect for both the intimate family gatherings and the elaborate parties held in the home. The custom paper cohesively connects each room of the home while bringing in a refreshing light.
Patterned Wallpaper — Brooklyn Point
From the designs of ELLE Décor A-List designer Charlie Ferrer of FERRER, this apartment’s wallpaper is bringing elements of the outside, in. The model residence located in Brooklyn Point in Downtown Brooklyn will have visitors transported into a stylish oasis surrounded by walls of flower prints and leaves. The muted colors of white and pearl grey are enhanced by burnt orange stems that match the rug, drapes, and throw pillows, bringing together design elements throughout the room.
