Spoonflower presentsTextured and Tonal Wallpaper Design Challenge

Winners announced 

Invigorate your senses to create a design that uses a harmonious blend of tints and tones with gentle texture you’ll want to feel for yourself. This week's Textured & Tonal Design Challenge is all about bringing together a refined color palette with the sophisticated use of texture. Think about true neutrals, curated luxury and simplistic, minimalist elements to layer a masterpiece.


Use your own desired color scheme to pull together tints and hues that complement each other, and submit a design that’s inspired by mixed media and hand-crafted materials. Consider using the texture of rattan or rope, coarse concrete, natural stone, wood grains and hand-sculpted clay to inspire your work, or think about hand-drawn, abstract shapes and elevated novelty motifs. Entries will be shown on a roll of wallpaper.
