Incorporate your home with stunning wallpapers to make your walls charismatic and classy. A dramatic feature wall is a great way to use these wallpaper, allowing the pattern to create an engaging space without being overwhelming. The variety of patterns provides the opportunity to personalize your home by reflecting your unique style and personality.
Secret # 2
Use wallpaper in unexpected places: on the ceiling, in a paneled room, in closets, hallways and small foyers. A great pattern or texture in small spaces can be a twist and might even open the space. Use geometrics, stripes to create the illusion of a big space. Some examples to give a twist can be a formal dining room with a bright colored ceiling, a white hallway and an unexpectedly colorful stairwell.
Not looking to be so dramatic? A simple white bedroom may offer up a playful surprise with a fun patterned papered wall in the closet. In the room above one’s eye is immediately drawn upward to the playful yet elegant ceiling.
Create fun three-dimensional wall art with simple display cubbies and wallpaper. Buy cubes at a crafts or discount store. Trace the box onto wallpaper, making a cross pattern on the paper, using five squares to cover every side but the back. Using a paintbrush, spread a thin layer of wallpaper paste on all but the back side of the box. Adhere paper to the cubes using your hand and a bayer to smooth.
Place a rug based on its size. For Example the size of the rug under the coffee table will dictate how you arrange furniture around it. One method is using an eight-by-ten-foot rug, situate the sofa and any chairs that the front legs are on the rug but the back legs are not.
However, with a five-by-eight-foot rug, keep the sofa completely off, but still place the front legs of the chairs on it. In a large family room, use two rugs to create two separate living areas.
Most of us live in a small home, room, or space. You can create illusion of a bigger living space simply by keeping drapes in the same color as walls to avoid contrast. Use smaller prints or plain color fabrics and rugs to create a single, unified effect and visually expand the room.
