Wallpaper is making a comeback in a big way. It can show off a homeowner’s personality and style or just be a simple accent in a room. With so many colors and patterns to choose from, there are myriad ways to use it in your home for big or small results. Here are some of our favorite ideas:

Bold and Broad

The traditional way of wallpapering is still very much on trend. Try using it to cover an entire room while matching your accent fabrics with the same color or print for a daring and lavish look. 


Appropriately Accented

Use wallpaper as an accent. It won’t take up the entire room, but it will definitely be the focus while adding color and depth. 


Tiny but Tactful

Use wallpaper to create a small statement wall in a tiny space like this nook. Layer it with shelves filled with artwork, photos, and other tchotchkes.


Two Patterns, One Look

Try selecting two wallpaper patterns for a single room. Yes, two! The key to pulling this off is to make the colors, not the patterns, coexist with each other. 


Fabulous Furniture

Don’t just assume wallpaper must go on the walls. A bland piece of furniture can become a predominant piece in a room by adding wallpaper to it.
