For the Love of Wallpaper!

Posted on March 01, 2012 by Terie Shields | 1 Comment


    This client and dear friend has really taken the Live What You Love mantra to heart! And of all the things to love, she LOVES wallpaper! In particular papers inspired by nature such as grasscloths, chinoiserie prints, and metallics. She is not one to be scared away by paper that makes a statement. Vibrant or bold wallpaper is an excellent choice to make a big statement in rooms that do not have a large amount of wall space, rooms that you do not spend too much time in, as an accent wall, or as framed art.

           The original builders of this home chose this wallpaper in the client’s dining room in the early 1980s.  It is truly timeless. Even now, every nail hole is carefully considered.

This modern metallic chinoiserie wallpaper brings warmth and glamour to an otherwise nondescript powder room.

            Covering walls in grasscloth is one of the most beautiful ways to add warmth and texture to a room. There was a time when wallpaper in general and grasscloth in particular was thought to be out of fashion. Fear not, grasscloth has become a classic!

            Talk about over the top and frilly! This guest bath is bold and floral with a wallpaper border at the crown and
even a papered ceiling. 

So for the love of wallpaper, make a statement!
