The subtle tonality is soothing and mysterious.
Leading U.K. wallpaper and paint specialist Graham & Brown has just unveiled its 2022 Wallpaper of the Year and Colour of the Year, and both choices reveal strong desires for the calm serenity of nature and for a more optimistic outlook for the future. The aptly named Restore wallpaper features a softly rendered motif of plants over a chalky, almost concrete-like backdrop, symbolizing the triumph of nature over the manufactured world.
Paint, $145 per 4-litre can; paper, $195 per roll; grahambrown.com.
It’s available in three colour-ways, each with a distinct mood: richly dark Restore Midnight, evocative of the notion of healing and rejuvenation; cool and refreshing Restore Sky; and crisp, botanically inspired Restore Emerald. Their Colour of the Year, Breathe, completes the mood: a refreshing yet rich and soulful blue.
