Wallpaper is slated to make its big comeback in 2019. Last year, wallpaper was used in more homes than in previous years, and this year it'll likely be even more. The proof is also in the data; Pinterest says searches for the keywords ‘bold wallpaper’ went up by 401 percent.

From tropical leaves to bright prints, here are some wallpaper designs to take on this year.

METALLIC

Silver and gold in all different styles are some of the biggest wallpaper shades for 2019. They're great for an accent wall or if you need to amp up a small space. If you're not particularly fond of garish gold in its original form, you can opt for a more subdued brushed appearance.

OVERSIZED WATERCOLOR

Watercolor wallpaper has the tendency to make a room more casual than it is which is why oversized wallpaper is the best way to approach the print. Match it with Scandinavian-style furniture to give it a calming feel.

JUNGLE-THEMED

Exotic plants and animals are a great backdrop for an eclectic room. Commit to the theme by using wood and green upholstery or go the opposite route with bright fabric and gilded furniture.

GEOMETRIC

Geometric prints are always associated with modern design, but you could always go for a traditional geometric print much like chevron. For a sophisticated feel, pick wood furniture in darker tones and use cream colors as accents.

CHINOISERIE

Chinoiserie is here to stay. As a traditional favorite, the print already made a comeback in 2018. Its reign crosses over to this year, however. Keep it fresh yet classic by cornering it with crown molding.

SUBTLE

A subtly printed wallpaper is a great way to let the pieces in your home shine. Place it strategically in the dining area or the library.The beauty of subtle wallpaper complements a busily decorated space.

STRIPES

Stripes are one of the most classic prints in the world. Go bold with Paul Smith-style stripes or subtle with alternating cream and white stripes. Make sure you choose a print with even stripes throughout to keep it classic.

FLORAL

Floral is another classic print that's expected to be popular this year. Skip the more trendy prints and go for something that gives you a vintage feel. It's more of a challenge to work with an old print and make it look fresh.

CHINTZ

Mario Buatta, the Prince of Chintz, passed away late last year but his legacy goes on. Chintz, Buatta's signature, can be done simply or elaborately. Go crazy by matching the fabric in your wallpaper with the ceiling down to the furniture and curtains.

SCENES

If you're looking for a statement that doesn't involve vivid colors oe crazy prints, scenes and landscapes are the best option. Jonathan Matti's Latina Manila wallpaper for De Gournay should be reason enough.

De Gournay is available at Elements Fine Furnishing Fabrics Inc.

AGATE

Apart from watercolor, oversized agate is also a trend to look out for. It's a great way to play with different shades of color on one wall. The print can either be relaxing in muted tones or bold in bright and multicolor patterns.

BRUSHED DOTS

Polka dot as a wallpaper print never quite took off, but if you want to try dots, go for the more sophisticated brushed style. Dots, depending on the print you pick, have a tendency to match anything, much like subtle prints.

ANIMALS

Another bold choice is animal printed wallpaper. Instead of animal skin patterns, however, drawn animals themselves are subject for 2019. The print is a great statement for small spaces like a guest bathroom.

TROPICAL

In the world of wallpaper, there's nothing more famous than the iconic Martinique print. The print, which famously adorns the Beverly Hills Hotel and New York restaurant Indochine, is spearheading the tropical trend.

TIN

Tin's comeback has been a long time coming. The material is sure to make any space a lot more interesting while adding depth with its texture.
