Aside from the variety of finishes and art available, there are new ways we designers choose to apply and use various wallcoverings in clients’ homes.
Often I decide to place this fantastic focal element on only one wall, creating an outstanding focal point that coordinates with paint colors on the remaining surfaces, as in these images of my client’s wonderful monochromatic dining room.
In other applications, maybe the fireplace surround gets its own dose of excitement. Sometimes it’s only the inside backs of the bookcases or the interior of an armoire might be just the spot for a pop of color. What a surprise when you open the door and find this colorful presentation!
Sometimes I’ll insert wallpaper into picture frame molding, creating pockets of pattern and interest within the walls. Often it’s placed above or below the chair-rail. Perhaps you could hang just 3 strips with a bit of space between each, creating an interesting vertical effect behind the living room sofa, or apply it to your stair risers in the entry. The ideas are limitless!
