Wallpaper is making a big comeback in the world of design, and we’re fans. We have been recommending wallpaper for pretty much every client recently. We have wallpaper in The Black Lake House and our house.
Sometimes wallpaper can be scary because if you get tired of it and gotta tear it all off, it can be a real pain, but it makes such an impact on a room. If you’re a little nervous about covering your whole room, installing wallpaper on just one wall will make a big statement. Check out below some of our favorite rooms where you should use wallpaper.
This wallpaper is getting placed in the Seattle Sunset Hill Home owner’s bedroom, and we’re obsessed with it.
The wallpaper on a bedroom wall livens up the space and adds an element of surprise without taking over the entire room. We love how they showcase the bed, creating a focal point, and draw you into the space. One accent wall is perfect if you’re intimidated by wallpaper and want to start small, and it is also fairly inexpensive. Instead of doing an accent paint color wall, give wallpaper a try. You’ll love it!
Here is Beckam’s nursery, where we used wallpaper from Rebel Walls that looks like a forest. This wallpaper makes the wall pop and creates a natural and earthy feel in this modern bohemian-style nursery. I had a friend over this past weekend asking if it was one big sheet, but it was actually four separate sheets, and you can’t even see the creases. We just did the one wall to create an accent wall. Beck’s nursery is a pretty small space, so I thought it might look even smaller if we did all four walls. So we painted the other remaining walls white to brighten up space.
The bathroom is another super fun space to install wallpaper. We have wallpaper in our lower level bath and the main level bath over at the Black Lake House.
Even though the bathroom is a small space, the wallpaper in this room adds drama and incorporates fun patterns, like in this amazing bathroom. It’s also a good way to bring in an element of fun without using wallpaper in the entire space. I honestly think bathrooms are one of the most fun spaces to put wallpaper. Especially if it’s a powder bath because it’s a small enough room and one that you won’t get sick of. And if it’s a space for guests, I guarantee they will always be wow-ing up your room.
4. Laundry Room
Who wouldn’t want to do laundry in this room? While the laundry room isn’t a place where you normally hang out, this wallpaper creates a soft, cozy vibe and makes the room feel more inviting than a room you just go to throw clothes in the wash.
5. Living Room
I love this space. In this living room, the wallpaper pattern ties in other elements in the room, such as the table and chairs. Bright large-scale floral prints are a hit right now. I like the simplicity of the solid color in this design. With wallpaper like this, you could even have little to no decor to make a big impact.
6. Dining Room
Dining rooms used to be stuffy but adding some wallpaper makes this dining room so fun! Rather than buying large artwork for the room, install wallpaper that makes the whole room look like a piece of art.
7. Home Office
And finally, the office. If you want to update your home office but don’t know where to start, consider this faux brick wallpaper for an easy makeover. It looks super cool, plus it gives the illusion of a brick wall for a much lower cost.
