As 2021 starts to wrap up, we’re focusing on wellness interior design trends. Next year’s mindful home is all about nature, escapism, and deep earthy hues that ground us. And one of the ways that anyone – with any budget – can easily transform their home, is the addition of woodland wallpaper.
This is an affordable decorating tip to bring the outdoors in and no matter what season you feel most connected to, there’s a wallpaper mural to bring your woodland vision to life. Whether you love cute, abstract or photorealistic, there are so many ways to channel the beauty of forests and woods in your home.
Here are some ideas to inspire you…
Realistic bluebell woodland

Is there anything more uplifting than a woodland floor painted with bluebells? The promise of this blueish/purplish perennial in mid-spring is enough to excite any rambler and these flowers attract walkers and tourists in their thousands every year.
Their short time in bloom makes them something of a rare and exceptional gem, but with our pretty Bluebell Woodland mural, you can enjoy this revitalising vision of blue all year round. No matter what’s going on in the world, this colourful work of nature assures us, “better times are ahead”. We could all do with a little dose of that these days.
The perfect woodland wallpaper for 2022 and easy to style in any room of the house!
Lost in the forest wallpaper
Mural in photo: A Poplar Tree Forest in Autumn
Need some serious escapism? The real world hasn’t been kind to us in recent years. However, we remain resilient and we find joys in the smaller things. This colourful Poplar Tree Forest mural is a small change that can create a huge impact in a room that needs some TLC.
While the trees are muted and tonal, a pop of golden yellow in the background adds instant warmth to any space. Whether you want to transform your bedroom into a hidden haven for self-reflection, or you want to make your living room the perfect place to relax, this autumnal woodland wallpaper will melt your stresses away.
Cute woodland animals mural

A major trend for children’s bedroom wallpaper in 2022 is inciting a sense of individuality and exciting their imaginations with elegant but detailed wallpaper. Think big story-telling graphics, nature landscapes bursting with little details and magical woodlands dotted with cute little animals.
Of course, murals like this one – the Forest Lookbook’ wallpaper mural by Kikki Belle – aren’t just reserved for kids’ bedrooms. They work well in playrooms, music rooms, study rooms and other areas of the home where imagination, at any age, is welcomed.

Moody forest wallpaper
Mural in photo: Smokey Misted Forest
Celebrate the wonders of winter scenery with this calming Smokey Misted Forest mural, made for those who want to create impact and atmosphere. There’s something so soothing about a cold, misty day. The kind of day where the air is crisp, the weather is still and the trees are out in full force.
Turn your home office into a calm, cool environment and let the dark green hues bring nature to your desk, while adding a stylish, sophisticated twist to an otherwise drab workspace. We think misty morals are great for cosy bedrooms and living spaces too – allowing you to dabble with the dark interior trend without stepping outside the safe zone!
Woodland wallpaper with a Nordic touch
Mural in photo: Subtle Nordic Flora And Fauna
This vintage-inspired Subtle Nordic Flora And Fauna mural by Andrea Haase delights the senses without overwhelming them. It’s perfect for a minimalist nursery, playroom or children’s bedroom. But the elegant design can look the part in any room of the house… who says you need to be a kid to enjoy this spectacular woodland wallpaper scene?
The colours are soft and gentle enough to fit in with any interior scheme (but especially organic design schemes) and the beautiful atlas detailing makes this mural a great choice for vagabonds, as well as those who miss travelling the globe.
Deep in the forest mural

Do you love escaping to the country? Is a wooded trail your first choice when it comes to hitting the outdoors? Getting lost in nature is good for the soul, and this Birch Forest Sunlight wallpaper depicts everything wonderful about putting on our walking boots and heading out on a sunny spring day.
While woodlands can be atmospheric in the wintertime, spring and summer bring a sense of hope, renewal and optimism. This is when flora and fauna are in their prime – and what’s more enchanting than that?

If you’ve been swayed the maximalist narrative, you may be interested in murals with a bit more colour. This British Woodland mural is an explosion of vibrant pigments!
Perhaps emboldened by Gucci’s latest décor collection – which features some seriously ‘out there’, colourful wallpapers – bright hues are making a comeback. And this time, there’s no messing around. Think bold colour combos and patterns that demand attention. Just like this rainbow woodland scene that’s been captured from above in the midst of fall.
Abstract forest wallpaper
Mural in photo: Wine Forest
Not everyone’s into landscapes or photo murals. We get it. You’re low-key and your home is the same. Abstract designs work well for people who prefer to keep things kind of cool and sophisticated. They’re ideal if your interiors are coordinated and stylised, with key colours that can be seamlessly matched with soft furnishings and well thought out décor.
This stylish Wine Forest wallpaper mural by SpaceFrog Designs has Instagram written all over it, and the colours are mellow enough for any time of year. There’s definitely no use-by date for something like this, giving you a wallpaper design that looks good season after season!
Just make sure you level up your artsy millennial interiors with some cream coloured fabrics and soft textures. Y’know, the kind of cushions that you just want to squish but you won’t because the ‘gram, hello?
