Wallpaper is back in style! That may be hard for some of you to believe. For many of us, the first thing that comes to mind is the frustrating old paper that would peel when you didn’t want it to, but would never come off if you tried to remove it. Modern wallpaper is has changed the game. Most of us thought that wallpaper was gone forever, but fashion is a pendulum that inevitably swings back to the classics.
Here’s more info on wallpaper, including what you can do with it and how we can help.
What to Do With Wallpaper
This is not your grandmother’s floral guest bathroom kind of wallpaper. Today’s approach is all about bright colors, bold prints, and posh styles. Popular catalogs feature textured paper and accent wall coverings.
Think outside the paint can. With wallpaper, it is easy to add sophisticated and affordable style to any room. Fresh, fun, modern styles that include abstract prints and chic colors help make a statement in your home. Mixing colors and prints can add depth to your room. A decorative wall covering that is truly unique can make your room truly stand out in comparison to flat paint.
As we talk with designers, they tell us that they recommend using wallpaper to complement your paint pallette rather than replacing it. Using wallpaper on one wall can orient your room and complement your furniture and decor.
Bold, Bright, Brilliant Decorative Wall Coverings
Wallpaper can help add light and color to what may be a bland or dark room. Colors in contrast often work just as well if not better than colors that complement each other.
For example, a dark navy room could really be brightened by a pop of yellow wallpaper on one of the walls. Follow the latest color trends to maintain a modern feng shui. Choose a pattern that speaks to you and turn any ordinary space into something extraordinary.
Some designers choose to accent various portions of their house with wallpaper like doors, trim, and even headboards. Whatever your preference, before making any decisions, speak with a professional! Their training and experience will save you from what could be a sticky situation (pun not intended).
There are many brands to choose from. Make your selection carefully, and know that you are purchasing something impermanent. Modern wallpaper is much easier to remove, which adds to its versatility and function. Tired of the print you purchased? Try a new one in no time!
Don’t be afraid or overwhelmed. You can still decorate your walls. Wallpaper actually makes a perfect canvas for soft artwork, framed pictures, and design pieces. Hanging wall shelves and mirrors also look great against wallpaper. However, it can start to look too busy really quickly. If you have anything with a pattern, try saving it for the solid painted walls. Just remember what the room is for. If you want to feel relaxed and at peace in that space, try to keep the wall decor and the patterns to a minimum.
