As an interior designer and lover of all things unconventional, wallpaper is one of my favorite ways to make a room stand out. With that, I must admit that browsing the endless variety of colors and patterns when choosing a wallpaper is no easy task. Follow my insights on how to make the perfect statement with wallpaper.
Contrary to popular belief, wallpaper doesn't necessarily darken, or close a room in. You may be surprised to see how wallpaper can expand or lighten a small space and create a warm, welcoming feeling. Don't hold back with colors, shapes and patterns that are a bit different!
Make a bold wallpaper selection and allow the rest of the room to work harmoniously around it. I personally love large, over-scaled patterns... my favorite is this palm leaf! While I always have fun with colors, black and white is one color scheme that never gets old in my book.
Play around with not only colors and patterns, but textures and accents as well. Rather than covering the entire room, you might consider highlighting just one wall with wallpaper. On my latest project, you can see how I covered the ceiling with a metallic grass weave to create a clean contrast.
Various wallpaper samples above are inspired by Phillip Jeffries, and some images were taken directly from the site. For more information, wallpaper or fabric suggestions, and exclusive designer access, just give me a call.
