Waste Not Wallpaper
Despite its name, wallpaper isn’t just for your walls. Kirke uses this decorating tool in a unique way that brings attention to unlikely spaces. “Wallpaper can bring an unloved corner to life,” she writes. “Wallpaper can bring out the unexpected by putting it in a place where it wouldn’t usually be.”
Pick a space. Have you ever had an awkward space that won’t fit any furniture or won’t accommodate a hanging piece? That’s a great place to start. Because it’s paper, wallpaper can be cut into any shape and size to accommodate any space. Line the back of your bookshelf with a vibrant pattern to liven up your book space. Brighten the dark corner under the stairs or even line your ceiling with an alluring design.
Pick a color and pattern. Once you have the location, all that’s left is to decide what color scheme and pattern will work in the area. Take the opportunity to pick a more provocative pattern if the rest of the room is neutral. Tone down an eclectic area with a solid color. If you love organized chaos, pair different patterns together that complement one another and bring visual interest to your space.
