Despite popular belief, you don’t have to be a bold decorator to bring wallpaper into your home. Sure, there’s no shortage of loud and colorful patterns out there, but if subtlety and timelessness is your thing, there’s a wallpaper for you too. Muted palettes and nature-inspired patterns make even the busiest of motifs digestible, and can be exactly the interesting detail your space needs. Ready to dip your toe into the world of wallpaper?
We advise keeping the square footage small to start — a powder bath is the perfect place to experiment, and pairing the pattern with wainscoting means you’re keeping the application to a minimum.
More of the go-big-or-go-home type? High five! We’ve got some great examples of daring wallpaper patterns done oh-so-right too. Scroll down for 15 print-filled spaces — all totally different — that get an A+ in our book.
