From the traditional and classic style to bold, modern and graphic, wallpaper is back in a big way.
Ever since Kaley Cuoco posted an Instagram of her horse wallpaper, the world can’t get enough of its room-transforming, style-defining powers. One of the best things about wallpaper is it ability to change the feel of any room, in any way.
Tips for choosing the perfect wallpaper: Avoid wallpapers that appear too trendy, or too far out of comfort. Always wanted a red room? Go for a wallpaper with red in it. Pick wallpapers that will stand the test of time. It will be too much of a hassle to repaper a room every year just to keep up with trends, so pick a wallpaper that can be lived with for a long time.
Accent it: Can’t commit to a whole room of the patterned paper? By putting it on just one accent wall, behind the bed in a bedroom or to create a focal point behind a sofa in a living room. For the second wallpaper or paint color, choose one of the muted tones within the wallpaper.
Pick a look: With several different tones and designs of wallpaper out there, it’s hard to know which is the best fit for the home. Soft, organic lines on wallpaper add a soothing touch to any room, whereas bold geometric shapes and bright bold colors can really add vibrancy and energy to a dull space. A busy, whimsical or interesting print can easily transform a small room into the home’s focal point, or special place to show off.
The wallpaper trend is here to stay, and it no longer has to look out dated or like a trip to grandmas. Start small and see what works best before committing to a whole room of new wallpaper.
