Wallpaper is an essential decor element- the paper doll of decor. Consider a wall, ceiling, bookcase back panel or whatever item you have in mind the form, and the colors, patterns, and textures the designer article of attire.

Have fun with interior design, decorating, and home decor! Rules apply for balance and form, but consider this- the unexpected use of color or well thought out and very intentional placement of a design or decor element in an “I would have never thought of that” place keeps things interesting.   Wallpaper adds interest, a punch of personality, and the all important and essential pop of color.

If we’re talking traditional wallpapers, we must be talking Grasscloth. Grasscloth wallpaper hangs around the scene for one stylish and obvious reason-its natural texture, quality of style, and durable function keep the spotlight on it.

I’ve installed, suggested, and used grasscloth many times over the years in properties we flipped, commercial and residential design jobs, and in our houses to rave reviews.  Repeat after me: classic-timeless-durable.

Instantly recognizable iconic patterns identify with not only the brand but with classic traditional style.  The investment in iconic pattern wallpapers is for the life of the space.

Texture intensifies this Graham & Brown wallpaper from the retro archives. Boucle beauty will have no trouble adding the oomph quality, regardless if the decision is to color or not to color.

Paintable wallpaper?

You bet!

Select your favorite color, grab a roller, and introduce impact to the space.

Is it art or is it wallpaper?

It’s both!

Wallpaper can most definitely be considered a work of art, especially patterns such as this one from Studio Printworks as featured in Architectural Digest.
