Matching Wallpaper and Paint is a Breeze with These Inspirational Wallpaper Design Ideas

If you think you have to choose between paint and wallpaper when decorating your home, think again. Combining paint and wallpaper that complement each other well can take your interiors to a whole new level.

With that said, we know that picking a wallpaper can be tricky, let alone matching it with the right paint colour. So, we’ve put together a handful of wallpaper paint design ideas to help you find the perfect paint and wallpaper pairing.

How to pair paint colours with wallpaper décor

Start by choosing your wallpaper

The first thing you need to do is choose your feature wallpaper and match paint afterwards. Whether you’re creating an eye-catching feature wall or wrapping your entire room in the stuff (and painting your ceiling), you’ll find a design you love in our wallpaper range.

To make your search easier, we now stock a series of wallpaper designs from brands including Graham & Brown, Galerie, and Casadeco that have already been combined with complementary Dulux Trade and Dulux Heritage paint colours.

Play it safe with a neutral paint colour

Once you’ve chosen your wallpaper décor, it’s time to marry it with a matching paint colour. Whatever wallpaper style you’ve chosen, you can’t go wrong with a neutral colour palette. Simple and understated, neutral tones can stand the test of time and will stunningly offset any feature wallpaper. For example, you could pair a botanical wallpaper like Isabelle Green from Graham & Brown with Romney Wool, a very pale taupe from the Dulux Heritage collection.

Make the primary colour in your wallpaper pop

Wallpaper is a great way to add the wow factor to your space. With so many exciting designs available, it makes sense that you’d want to pair your wallpaper décor with a paint colour that’s just as inspiring.

One way to do this is to focus on the main colour in your wallpaper. For example, if you chose Amazonia from the Galerie range, we’d recommend pairing it with a similar shade of Red Ochre in the Dulux Heritage collection.

Bring out the accent colour in your wallpaper

Alternatively, look to the accent colours in your wallpaper design. These are the secondary shades that support the primary colour. Pulling out these pops of colour gives you a more subtle approach and can help to balance the colour scheme in your room.

Riverside 3 Nuage Bleu Orange, for example, can be found in the Casadeco collection and pairs beautifully with Denim Drift, a Dulux Trade paint colour.

Or you could highlight the pink petals in the Apple Blossom Grey Pink wallpaper by Graham & Brown with a Dulux Trade colour like Party Balloons.
