Wallpaper is back in a big way, from traditional and classic to bold and graphic; wallpaper goes way beyond what can be done with paint. Painted walls, although great in some spaces, do not liken to the luxury and magnificence a few rolls of wallpaper can provide.
Play up to a theme
Designers are looking for ways to impart the ‘wow’ factor without having to add more costly items, such as tiles, stone or expensive textile fabrics, and wallpaper does a great job of it. Play up to a theme, or take a less literal approach and play up the grandeur of its pattern.
When tackling an oversized room or high-ceilinged foyer use wallpaper to create a more intimate feel. Add crown moulding as well, visually altering the space to appear less cavernous and cosier.
Digital printing has enabled wallpaper designers to go in directions that have never been available in previous hand-printed versions. New advances in design mean new, fresh looks for your walls.
Wallpaper has an amazing way of warming up a room and creating rich, layered sophistication.
Just as wallpaper can help change the feel of a too-big room, it can rescue a too-small space as well.
Make a Statement
Wallpapers can make almost any type of design statement. Soft, organic lines lend a soothing touch to a room, whereas bold geometrics can really add vibrancy and energy to a dull space.
Choose a bold graphic wallpaper, such as these monochromatic arrows, to instantly create visual energy in a room
Choose what you love
Avoid wallpapers that appear too trendy, or too far out of your comfort zone. If you have always loved a blue room, go for wallpaper with blue in it. Timeless classics are just that: timeless. You don’t want to repaper a room every year, so chose wallpaper you could live with for a long time
