THE TURN-OF-THE-CENTURY HOUSE

At the start of the 1900s, Swedish industry was thriving, and wallpaper prices decreased. Many people could afford to dress their homes with wallpaper. The wealthy built their houses on the city's outskirts and chose different wallpapers in every room to create an all-through lovely home. In smaller cottages, wallpaper became a popular option to dress up a modest interior. Palm leaf and stylised flower designs were the height of fashion.

BLOSSOMING ORNAMENTATION



THE JUGEND VILLA

During the first years of the 20th century, a new and brighter style was trending in Europe. In Germany, it was called Jugendstil, and in France, Art Nouveau. In Sweden, the trend went hand in hand with Swedish romantic nationalism – looking back at the old days, taking inspiration from Swedish nature. Many homes were inspired by mansions and country estates, with higher ceilings and larger windows. A desire for a brighter, more spacious room meant the new airy and nature-inspired designs quickly grew in popularity.

SWEEPING SHAPES AND BOLD STYLES



THE 1920S HOUSE

In the 1920s, the architecture went towards a more strict and clean expression. Symmetry and geometry, light and space were desired, while the past Art Nouveau and romantic nationalism style were seen as pompous. Wallpapers with lines and circles, graphic forms and stylised floral designs were sought after. Simultaneously a new oriental trend was growing, with eastern-inspired patterns. Wallpapers could dress every wall throughout the home, often with a brown or beige background as a cosy contrast to the austere architecture.

CLASSIC SYMMETRY IN CLEAN LINES



THE MID-CENTURY HOUSE

During the 1930s, functionalism caught on in Sweden. Decorations with no function were seen as pointless; and instead, “clean and simple” became the motto. As the welfare state was emerging, functionalism grew softer and became more accessible. The lines were still clean and without frills, but the style also allowed for more cosiness. Built around the mid-century, this type of house often had a divided floor plan with separate rooms. This made it perfect for picking a variety of wallpapers and giving every room its own character.

A SOFTER FUNCTIONAL



THE BRICK HOUSE

During the 60s and 70s, many houses were built in low-maintenance brick and whitewash, often combined with wood panels. The parlour is replaced by a more laidback living room for the whole family to hang out in. The floor plan is innovative, and rooms grow larger in size. Solid and functional are the focus. Subtle colour schemes complement today's modern life.

DOWN-TO-EARTH WITH PLAYFUL FLORALS



THE NEW-BUILT HOUSE

The newly built house is often spacious with an open floor plan. Every room has multiple functions, and the wallpapers can often be seen from several angles in the home. This calls for a broad perspective when choosing wallpapers, patterns and colours. But it also gives amazing opportunities to add warmth and personality to strict architecture. An excellent way to accentuate a specific part of the living space is to frame it with patterned walls.
