Wallpaper – Go Big or Go Home

The power of wallpaper can be dramatic and bold. Its various patterns, color and textures can give any wall character and life. Many times a large pattern or a pattern with color is just what a room needs. But keep in mind, proportion and scale are key elements to the success of any room.

When considering¬†wallpaper for your space, it can be added to just one wall or all the walls of a room…or maybe just the ceiling if so desired. Do not underestimate the impact and impression wallpaper has in a room. It can act as artwork for wall all on its own.

Wallpaper and murals have been in the midst of a resurgence in the past several years. Murals have life to them and often tell a story as shown here in this room.
