Modern Wallpaper

Wallpaper has recently made a big comeback as people begin to realize just how fashion-forward it really is. There are many uses for modern wallpaper applications that do not necessarily include using it on just a wall. Designer wallpaper is now more detailed than ever with patterns that include vivid colors, metallic accents, soft or rough textures, and 3d shapes. Homeowners and designers alike are using wallpaper to do more than ever before; such as covering a headboard, creating wall art, or even adding a coordinating feature wall design to the insides of bookcases!

Using wallpaper designs is one way homeowners today are creating an environment that is essentially an extension of themselves, a personalized Zen space. Using paint alone, you could not create the visual depth a 3d wallpaper can create. Not that you want to overdo it with wallpapering every inch of every wall in your home; in most cases you would want to be able to add wallpaper as a focal point in the room. Try using your favorite pattern on an accent wall, or use wallpaper to give small spaces the illusion of more space.

Nature Wallpaper

One of the most popular styles currently is nature wallpaper, designers are using natural themes to bring the outdoors feeling into the home in surprisingly elegant ways. Recently designer Melissa Miranda of HGTV cleverly utilized both nature wallpaper (See Photo) and the black and white trend to give a tiny bathroom more life. Small rooms like bathrooms are the perfect place to try bold wallpaper ideas that you might be unsure of using elsewhere.

Wallpapers are great for children’s rooms as well, both boys and girls rooms can benefit from the variety of kids themed wall coverings and peel-and-stick wall decals on the market. Girls of all ages love the ever-popular Hello Kitty wallpaper; they can choose between several styles and can even help choose where the Hello Kitty peel-and-stick wall decals should go. Boys can enjoy the super hero room of their dreams with wallpaper borders and peel and stick wall decor featuring their favorite hero’s like Spiderman, Batman, and Green Lantern.

Christmas Wallpaper Ideas

Some savvy crafters are even using cheap or free wallpaper samples to use in various crafting projects. Large wallpaper samples are usually priced from $1.00 to $5.00 and can be framed as photographs, used to cover cork-boards and books, or even used to line drawers! Leftover Christmas wallpaper is even great for giving new life to those nice but very boring re-usable brown or white gift boxes.
