When we think of wallpaper we imagine our Grandmother’s pink and blue floral patterned bathroom walls. Although homeowners are still tearing out that sightly wallpaper of the 70’s and 80’s, designers are still using quality wallpaper to create fantastic spaces (and it definitely doesn’t look like Grandma’s bathroom).
It was not until today that I was reminded that wallpaper can be fashionable and rich when used in the correct way. I did a kitchen display in which I used a Bradbury & Bradbury wallpaper to create a warm, country-style display. You can also create a real punch of color with an intense pink or blue floral combined with white painted or dark stained cabinetry. I had the pleasure of working with Designer Annette Starkey of Living Environment Design on a 1900’s Victorian where she designed the kitchen with White Shaker cabinetry, bead board, white countertops and a bright FUSIA DEMASK WALLPAPER! It looked amazing!
Another exciting wall treatment similar to wallpaper is of course, stickers or appliqué. For a cute selection of stickers and wallpapers, check out Ferm Living for a selection of retro-modern patterns.
Wallpaper; a wall covering that will not soon be forgotten… especially when we have such incredible patterns to choose from.
