As glib as it sounds, few products purchased to design and enliven your home have the versatility of wallpaper. Wallpaper, you say, but wallpaper’s so basic, how do you expect me to breathe new life into something so utilitarian? The ways are innumerable! If you’re an artist, incorporate it into your work as backdrop, to cover frames, to ‘dress’ figures – you name it, you do it.
Do you have a table in your house? Yes. I thought so. Buy a piece of glass and sandwich wallpaper between the table and the glass – a new an inexpensive way to make the piece pop – plus when you’re bored with one piece of paper, another is less expensive than a whole new table by far!
There are the obvious places – headboards, accent walls and backsplashes can all become remarkably invigorated and modernly quaint by employing the right piece of paper.Then there are the not-so-obvious place – Spice up your stairways with splashy prints, those kitchen chairs getting tired? Paper ahoy! A door is just a door – with the right paper choice it can become a portal into another world .
Be your tastes classic or modern, homey or Spartan, there’s a paper for it – and a new twist on an old favorite.
