Choosing the right fabric for a room is so important in the design process….It’s all about choosing the right color and the right texture. Now, with all the innovations in wallpaper, the walls are another great “fabric” to choose! Whether it is a subtle wallpaper adding in texture, or a patterned piece making the statement for the room, or even BOTH color and pattern for an even bigger “WOW” factor, wallpaper that used to get a bad rap as being “outdated” is now cooler than ever and definitely here to stay!
Here are a few favorites from Elitis with great colors, patterns, and dimension….
And a touch of elegance and glammy glimmer….
Pierre Frey also offers some fabulous wallpapers….I’m loving the exotic charm of this print with elephants, lions, and my fave- peacocks! Visiting the private home of Vincent Frey while in Paris last year for a small dinner party, I spied some gorgeous fabrics…no surprises there
And of course I can’t forget a crown print like this one from Rubelli!
A flock-on-flock printing technique allows imitation of the typical 3D appearance of Venetian two-heights velvet, where the pattern is created by the two different heights of the pile. Gorgeous!
Although I’m totally in love with the white brick walls of my Buckingham Interiors + Design Showroom in Chicago, I am equally obsessed with the spaces I was able to wallpaper!
While this Malachite wallpaper also from Cole & Son in our powder room keeps the neutral grey palette interesting- and never dull!
So whether it is a great geometric print in a hallway like this one from a downtown Chicago renovation project….
Or a vibrant dragon print (This fab one is from Schumacher) off of a bedroom in a young girls sitting room….
…..I never miss an opportunity to add an eye-catching wallpaper to a space!! After all, with the incredible options in wallpaper now, how can I resist?!?! xx
