It’s that time again. Blog time! Last month, we talked wood-paneled walls. This month, we are talking wallcoverings, aka a fancy term for wallpaper! Currently, we are wrapping up a few projects and are also selecting materials for others that all involve a wallpaper moment of some sort, and we couldn’t be more excited to debut a couple of favorites that we’ve been dying to use.

Wallpaper is one of the easiest ways to make an immediate impact in a room. It adds character and can initiate a mood of your choice into a space. Wallpaper is a chance to introduce an artistic motif. The wall is your canvas! Choose a colorful pattern for a more playful approach or go with a big, bold floral print to create elegant drama. Wallpaper can curate the color palette you plan on using in a room, and it can help set the mark for the rest of your design decisions. If you choose to make a statement with a bold color and pattern, you can pair it with some safer neutral furnishings and fixtures throughout for balance, or you can even play off the colors of the paper and work with other tones within the family. Better yet, go bold pattern but in a soft colorway, the South Harlow approach. Yep, it’s possible to be both daring and safe in one fun little design dance.

If you aren’t sure where to begin, we recommend starting in an area of your home where you feel willing to take a design risk. Some of our favorite places are the home office, powder bath, and kids’ room. We love using wallpapers as an accent wall, a pop of pattern behind open shelving in your home bar area, or even on the ceiling if you feel up for taking a chance. One of our favorite ways to mix the glory of lush materials is pairing paper with tiles for a beautiful blend of pattern and texture.

We encourage you to undertake a design transformation within your home using wallcoverings, so we took it upon ourselves and compiled a few of our favorite selections below. Let us know if you have some good ones that we need to have on our radar, too.

Until next time!
