Thank you Jacki for your great tips!
I have created a list of fun and creative uses for wallpaper besides actually wallpapering your walls. These are simple ideas that will introduce you to using wallpaper. You just may love the warmth and charm that it brings that you will want to decorate your whole house! I have also included a few of my favorite wallcoverings with each project.
Idea #1Wallpaper the faces of drawers with a fun pattern like Clarence Trail from Thibaut's Small Print Resource II. I can help you, along with one of our color professionals, pull out a paint color to paint the rest of the furniture.
Idea #2Wallpaper the top or sides of a dresser or bed side table with Giada from Antonia Vella's Glitteratti II. The charcoal/gold colorway is gorgeous!
Idea #3The back of a built in book shelf is always a great place to showcase a great wallcovering. A geometric wallpaper pattern like Lucian from Anna French's Lyric would look stunning in the back of a large floor to ceiling built in, as long as the space between the shelves is large enough to support the pattern.
Idea #4For smaller spaces such as an entertainment center or a small book shelf try a grasscloth wallpaper such as Thibaut's Antilles Weave in Copper from Grasscloth Resource 2.
Or a basket weave such as Sachon Basket in color Navy from Thibaut's Menswear Resource Collection.
Idea #5Frame out large panels of wallpaper on a wall. They can be any size depending on the scale of the wallcovering. The larger the scale the larger panel. I have selected a few patterns that I absolutely love, the wallpaper options are endless!
Sulu in Charcoal - Monterey
Downing Gate in Metallic Gold on Bark - Neutral Resource
Allison in Navy - Geometric Resource
