The Grecians knew what they were doing when it came to designing with their intricately carved pillars, marble busts, and rich terracotta and cerulean blue accents. In 2022, we are seeing renewed interest in these design motifs that are simple, regal, and seemingly effortless.
From textural prints reminiscent of clay, stone, and marble to richly pigmented hues, we have wallcoverings tailored perfectly to the increasingly popular Hellenistic design trend.
Tonal Richness: Terracotta and Cerulean
The cool blue hues of the Santorini hills are one of the central features of Greece and make for stunning design inspiration! Blue is always a popular color in design, and when paired with crisp whites, metallic accents, pops of terracotta or earthy browns, and lots of natural light, this look is as refreshing as the Mediterranean Sea breeze.

The rich chocolatey hue of this marble wallpaper paired with terracotta accents – and even a marble bust – gives a cozy but regal feel to this bedroom. The decadent tones in this space are oh so swoon-worthy.
