Contemporary wall coverings are one of the most important details when it comes to designing a modern living space. The art of decorating your walls is not a detail that should be overlooked.

Viesso offers a number of contemporary wall coverings that are appropriate for every room of your home.

In its true essence, the simplicity, texture and subtle sophistication are all of the features that define contemporary wall coverings. By focusing on these features as well as color and shapes, you can find the perfect contemporary wall coverings for your home. Here are some of the features that you should consider if you are trying to find the perfect match for your home.

Getting Started

Selecting wall coverings for the various rooms of your home should be all about bring the elements in the rooms together. If you have already selected furniture for the room, take a cue from the existing color palette when trying to decide which colors you want to use on the walls. The colors of the furniture should provide you with a sufficient starting point that allows you to put together ideas for the wall coverings.


If you are trying to select your color palette for the wall coverings, neutrals, whites and blacks are a good place to start. These colors are often accented by the addition of bright and bold colors. If the paint on the wall is a neutral color, bold colors for the wall coverings are a good idea. Whereas if the wall paint is a bold color, opt for a neutral color when it comes to wall coverings.


Lines and bold color blocks are an excellent choice if you are trying to find wall coverings for a space that has high ceilings or a space that has bare areas between pieces of furniture. When it comes to modern design, the idea is less is more. Therefore, if you opt to use patterns in your room, use them sparingly.

Suggestions for Decorating With Stripes

If you are considering incorporating wall coverings that have striped patterns, try to avoid using colors that clash. Stripes can become an overwhelming pattern so it is very important that you select colors that provide contrast or that are from the same color family. Selecting colors that clash can make a room appear very distracting and cluttered and will make it difficult for the other design elements in your room to stand out with the distraction of the wall coverings.

If you are trying to decorate a small room, use thin stripes. If you are decorating a large room, wider stripes should be used. Strips can be very elegant and are a good option if you are going for a more traditional look.

If you are designing a child’s room, mixing thin and thick stripes creates a more playful look that just may provide the fun touch that you are looking for. When blending stripes of different sizes, opt for pastels and lighter colors to avoid creating a design that is overwhelming on the walls.

Keeping It Natural

Viesso stocks a number of wall coverings that are made from renewable resources such as rice, sisal, cork, wood, bamboo and more. Glues and dyes that are often associated with wall coverings can lead to allergic reactions in people that are sensitive to these materials.
