Maybe it’s because we’ve spent so much time at home looking at our plain old painted walls in the past 2 years, or maybe it’s just a trend that is making a major comeback. But either way we love how much personality you can add to a space with wallpaper.
Whether you are looking to add a whimsical touch or a geometric touch, wallpaper is sure to give your space a striking design that you and your guests will admire for years to come. However, there are a few things to consider before committing to a design with wallpaper.
Don’t feel you need to wallpaper an entire room (although you can do that too). Sometimes adding wallpaper to one wall or corner in a room is all you need to get the look you desire and you can save time and money by sticking (no pun intended) with a smaller surface area.
Select wallpaper with a classic color as the dominant color. This kitchen wallpaper has the whimsical jellyfish that are perfect for the Cape Cod community this home is in.

When in doubt ask a designer. If you have your eye on a particular wallpaper design, chances are you are following your gut and that usually leads to a good long term decision. However, sometimes you need a little help. Home design is not for everyone and that’s where designers can help you a great deal. If you want to add wallpaper but need someone to be more hands on with your design then hire a designer to help turn your home into the sanctuary you want it to be.
If you are looking to add something special to a space in your home, wallpaper can give you an “of-the-moment” aesthetic that is hard to match. Follow these tips to get the look you want in your home.
