7 Smart Tips For Using Wallpaper In Your New Jersey Home
If the mention of wallpaper has you envisioning Grandma’s dated floral pink pattern or old-fashioned floor-to-ceiling flocked bathroom walls, think again! Wallpaper today features in many an interior decorator's home design and brings a breath of fun and drama to today’s New Jersey homes. Team Nest Builder recommends these 7 smart tips for incorporating wallpaper into your home design:
The Story of Your Home
Use colors in your wallpaper pattern as the inspiration for your New Jersey home’s “color story”. In other words, select a color from your wallpaper pattern and use it as the foundation color for your space’s color scheme, picked up and carried throughout.
Accent on Wallpaper
Pick one wall in your room to act as an “accent wall’ and apply a bold, statement wallpaper. This works especially well in smaller rooms that could be easily overwhelmed by an abundance of color or pattern.
Incredible innovations in removable wallpaper and decals allow for bold, interesting choices that can be easily changed. For example, sweet ducks and bunnies in an infant’s bedroom can be easily changed to cars and cartoon characters as your child grows.
A popular design trick involves framing wallpaper as art. Large pieces offer amazing impact!
Oh, What a Feeling!
Consider textured wallpapers featuring interesting elements such as beading and fabric for 3-dimensional home design.
Match the scale of the pattern to the size of the room. The larger the room, the bolder and larger-print the wallpaper can be.
Metallic wallpapers such as gold or silver help add a touch of elegance and glam to your New Jersey home.
