Tips for creating bold statements and adding subtle accents with wall (and ceiling) paper

October 1, 2018
Primary bedroom with bold color and wallpaper

Wallpaper has made a huge return in the interior design realm, but gone are the days of ornate brocades and damasks covering every wall in the room.


We use wallpaper to make a bold statement as an accent wall or as a subtle way to add texture. I also love to do something creative with a ceiling.



If we’re dealing with ceilings that flow from one space to another, we’ll frame out a section of the ceiling to form a “tray” and paper inside that space.



We’ve used metallic cork papers for a little edge and subtly patterned lacquered papers for a bit of glam.



The options in the market for wallpaper are endless. We’ve found great, independent wallpaper designers out of New York and Portland, Ore., and in our own backyard here in Richmond. We also have companies that will create papers from any image you send them. I’m getting ready to create a wallpaper with a client’s blueprints for her powder room.
