Wallpaper. Let’s talk about it. It is not a thing to be scared of and it’s not a thing of the past! Used effectively wallpaper can add so much life and personality to a room. For any taste that you have, there is a wallpaper out there for you. And wallpaper can be used in virtually any space in your home- bedrooms, living areas, stairwells, home offices and even bathrooms. Check out some different wallpapers that I love below to get an idea of how you can use wallpaper in your own home.

Love this gold and white wallpaper. Simple in color, yet such a beautiful pattern created by a process called paper marbling. It’s cool to know that no one will have the exact same pattern as you since every wall they do is custom fit and non-repeating!

Calico Wallpaper


Here I used Scalamandre wallpaper in a stairwell I designed. This is a beautiful way to utilize wall space in an area with a high ceiling and add color and life to the walls. You can get all the details for this space here.  And just because you use wallpaper, it doesn’t mean you can’t use other patterns in the room as I did here with the window seat and cushions.  Pattern play is one of the best outlets to reveal your own creative genius!

I used this Brunschwig Treillage wallpaper in my own home office and brings the pink and green color scheme together perfectly. Again, this is another example of how you can mix and match patterns even while using wallpaper.  It adds so much detail and interest!  You can see all the details for this fun office here!

This walls of this bedroom I designed is a custom paper by Griffin and Wong.  Each panel is hand painted silk in your choice of background color and paint colors from China. Using wallpaper similar to this in a bedroom gives a sweet and romantic feel to the mood of the room.  You can see this full Master Suite Reveal Here!

This is a fun and playful wallpaper called Thibaut Tanzania. It gives a quirky and eclectic feel to this home office while using minimal colors, but adding a pattern that pairs well with the textures which are what makes this room’s overall design work so well.

Don’t forget that wallpaper doesn’t have to be used only on walls. This is a wonderful example of how you can use wallpaper on other surfaces, like your ceiling!  I love this idea!
