Growing up I remember the wallpaper in my grandmother’s Westport CT home. And I thought I would never use wallpaper in my house when I grow up. But wallpapers today are not your grandmother’s wallpaper. The textures, colors, and designs are stunning. You can add dramatic, contemporary, visual interest to just about any room. Let’s explore the possibilities.
Not your Grandmother’s Textured Wallpaper
Wallpaper applied to walls or ceilings will have a stunning effect. For instance, using textured wallcovering as in grasscloth or textured wallpaper. This gives the space an architectural detail that paint alone cannot. Vinyl textured wallpaper applied in a bathroom gives instant design interest. The bathroom is the perfect location for wallpaper. In other words, with the extra moisture and dampness, vinyl wallpaper can handle daily use. If you wanted to start small. The powder room is the place to add wallpaper. The room is smaller therefore the wallpaper will have a big impact.
Florals can be Fabulous
Today florals can be as bold as yours or your interior designers’ imagination allows. Trending designs are large scale patterns and murals. Small scale patterns are also in style. The important thing to keep in mind is the proportions of the pattern to the overall mood of the room.
Geometric patterns, abstract shapes, and random patterns create a stunning focal point. Also, these wallpaper designs look amazing on a single wall in a dining room or master bedroom.
