Can you pick the perfect wallpaper?


Hello Decor Friends,


One of the number one elements I have been using in all my design projects is incorporating wallpaper. It has come a long way friends, Gone are the days of the top “border” in chickens and grapes. Anyone remember those? Wallpaper has become user friendly with peel and stick versions, and of course pre pasted, that does not take an army to remove.


Today I wanted to send you 5 easy tips to choosing the perfect paper for you.


Step 1: Discover Your Style: Take some time to explore different aesthetics, from modern to rustic, and everything in between. Get inspired by browsing magazines, websites, or even creating Pinterest boards. The goal is to find what resonates with you and makes you feel right at home.


Step 2: Set the Mood: Now, think about the room where you want to install the wallpaper. Is it your cozy bedroom or a lively living room? Consider the purpose of the space and how you want it to feel. If you're aiming for a friendly and inviting vibe, consider warm and welcoming colors like soft neutrals, pastels, or earth tones. These hues can create a comforting and approachable atmosphere.

Step 3: Pattern Power: Do you prefer a patterned wallpaper or a solid color? It's time to make that decision! If you opt for patterns, think about the scale of the design in relation to your room's size. Large patterns make a bold statement, while smaller patterns or textured wallpapers can add depth and interest without overwhelming the space. Trust your instincts and go with what makes you smile!


Step 4: Test the Waters: Ready to bring your vision to life? Many wallpaper retailers offer sample swatches or small rolls to take home. Take advantage of this opportunity and try out different samples on your walls. Pay attention to how they interact with the lighting and other elements in the room.



Step 5: Trust your eye: Seek opinions from friends and family whose taste you trust, but remember, the final decision is yours! Trust your instincts and choose the wallpaper that speaks to you. It's all about finding that perfect balance between what you love and what enhances the environment you want to create.


Remember, selecting wallpaper should be an enjoyable experience, so have fun exploring, experimenting, and making your space uniquely yours. And remember friends, if you get stuck, I offer a virtual design service. So no matter where you call home I can help you design the space of your dreams.


Happy wallpapering,

Bye For Now
