Most of us have had to remove wallpaper at one time or another, and if the walls weren't prepared correctly, it came off in little pieces. Joy. Because of my experience in this I have steered clear of wallpaper. As of late, however, by reading design books, magazine and blogs, wallpaper has been growing on me, still not sure if I want it, but enjoy the beauty of some of it! However, it is still permanent, I can't sit still for very long and would want to be changing it all of the time.
Great rooms, lots of whimsey and fun!
This graphic dominates the room but the room's spaciousness keeps it from overpowering.
Keep in mind the scale of the other elements in the room when selecting the scale of the pattern on the wallpaper. If the sofa, draperies or a large rug are large in scale, opt for smaller scale on the walls. Small scale design on the paper works well to add a little interest to the walls and not make the walls the focal point.
This is a beautiful damask.
How about papering the ceiling? It softens the angles and blurs the edges of the room.
This is a beautiful Gracie hand painted wallpaper. Putting paper in the dining room adds interest and pattern into a room that is typically hard, solid surfaces.
Brooke of Velvet and Linen used de Gournay hand painted paper in this fabulous dining room in one of the homes her husband designed.
This is another de Gournay....beautiful.
So what do you think....ia wallpaper in your design style? Do you think you will begin to incorporate it more in some spaces?
