Design Trend – Wallcovering on the ceiling

We’re loving the latest design trend on Pinterestwallpaper on the ceiling!  To pull this off choose your room carefully.  This works best in homes with higher ceilings defined by recesses or molding.  Do not use a floral or grand pattern, it will be too overwhelming.  Stick with a simple pattern, solid, or metallic paper like in the rooms below…

The simple geometric pattern used here gives this elegant bath some unexpected interest.

This room uses color on the ceiling as an accent.  Try this technique using a pearlescent paper for a soft glow.

The gold metallic paper used here coordinates nicely with the colors in the room, giving the room an more finished look.

Wallpaper is back

Wallpaper has changed over the years.  Since its quiet departure, manufacturers have developed wallpaper that is easier to use and now have the ability to produce a wider range of patterns and textures.  For a generation that’s not afraid of color, today’s patterns are vibrant.  However, these patterns have been subdued using tone-on-tone or two-tone color techniques, resulting in a more polished look.  Yes, wallpaper is backwith some sophisticated styles!

Geometric patterns are a chic choice, often used to add interest to a room.  A popular look today is to use a geometric pattern on one wall as an accenttypically done in a living room, dining room, or bedroom.

Damask patterns are popular as well, often selected for their regal feel and richness in color.  Large scale patterns like this one are best used as an accent wall, so not to overwhelm the room.

Textures are back too.  Available in an array of colors and textures, grasscloth is a beautiful choice for nearly any room.  Often used in combination with wainscot paneling for a foyer or dining room, grasscloth meets today’s demand for simplicity and elegance.

Next, get your porch ready by recovering your furniture cushions or creating a cozy seating nook.  Complete the space with some brightly colored, patterned pillows. Using colors from nature is a great way to bring the outdoors in—perfect for a transitional space like this sunporch.  Yellow, aqua, blue and green are all colors from nature that work beautifully together.  Make sure you select quality indoor/outdoor fabrics for fade-resistance and durability, like this collection by Kravet
