3 Ways to Use Bold Wallpaper

An interior is the natural projection of the soul.- Coco Chanel

One of the hottest design trends, for 2019, is big bold wallpaper.  Papered walls are finally back and the bolder the better.  As a true wallpaper lover, I couldn’t be happier about this.  There is nothing like a bold patterned wall to give a room interest and an instant sense of architecture.  Wallpaper also gives a room a feeling of warmth and texture.  All of my bedrooms growing up were papered and felt so cozy.

The patterns that are trending now cleverly use color and scale to achieve a modern, cleaner look.  Florals, chinoiserie prints and geometrics have all been updated for today’s more streamlined interior.  I’ve rounded up a few papers I love along with some ideas for how-to-use them in your space.  Here’s to ringing in 2019 in style!

 Powder room- A half bath is the perfect place to use a pattern that will make an impact.  It will leave a lasting impression on guests and actually makes the space feel larger. // 1. Self adhesive red zebra wallpaper- I found this one on Etsy for a great price.  It’s a copy of the classic Scalamandre favorite.  It would make any space feel so chic. // 2. Scalamandre Zebras Wallpaper-  The real deal.  Timeless. Effortless. Glam.  Adds a touch of drama to even the dreariest spaces. 

Entryway- I like to think of the foyer as the calling card for your home.  It tells guests what your space is all about and is the ideal place to make a statement.  Don’t be afraid of going for a bold floral here as it’s a space that you won’t spend too much time in. // 3. Sanderson Home Papavera Wallpaper Collection- The bold color and large scale of this poppy print make it instantly modern.

Bedroom- There is nothing cozier than sleeping in a room with a timeless pattern.  Papering the ceiling extends the eye around the room and makes a small space feel larger.  A chinoiserie pattern adds a dash of the exotic. // 4. York Peaceful Temple Wallpaper- Chinoiserie never goes out of style and is a pattern you’ll never tire of.  The blue colorway is so restful for a bedroom.

Stay tuned for more of 2019′s hottest interior design trends as the new year approaches.  Happy holidays!
