… Or, on the Contrary, Minuscule Motifs
Small repeating patterns, such as thin stripes or teeny monochromatic geometric prints actually help a space feel bigger as well as more sophisticated. And if instead you want to be daring, a playroom or a child’s bedroom is the perfect place in which to experiment with bold colour combinations!
Popular Earth Tones
Caramel, beige, brown, terracotta, and mushroom grey … there is nothing like using earth tones for an inviting and restful space. It’s no surprise then that these colours are most often found in bedrooms and lounging areas, such as the living room. Used as wallpaper, these shades will create the ideal atmosphere for relaxation.
Everywhere but the Walls
Applying wallpaper to the ceiling is increasingly common. It creates a very unexpected focal point and is an eye-catching way of lifting a drab room. If you decide to adopt this trend in your home, choose a small-scale print in colours that complement the room’s existing textile elements, like the carpet and accent pillows. You want to avoid any jarring contrasts.
You can also use wallpaper patterns as inspiration when picking other household textile items. Toile motifs, on an old armchair or padded headboard, are best suited to traditional interior design styles. However, a piece of furniture upholstered in a trendy vivid pattern can just as easily complement a wide range of decors.
