For a long time, I’d always thought of wallpaper as a kitsch decor idea, something from the 60-70’s, really drab and better left behind. But I was wrong, so wrong! The resurgence of wallpaper popularity has been going strong for many years now. Today, there is such a variety of colourful, creative and sophisticated variety, it has become a piece that could totally revamp your space and tie everything together in one wonderful sweep. Here are a sample of modern and contemporary wallpaper that caught my eye and may just wet your appetite.
The thing about wallpaper is that it’s not for the fainthearted. You gotta have the intention of making it striking, even if the colour or pattern is simple, you are likely to get some commentary. Aim to create an impression with the wall that you choose to dress. There are no restrictions of which wall you choose in your house, it could be the bathroom, laundry, bedroom or lounge, it doesn’t matter. Make that wall the focus of that room and create the stylish effect you want through the pattern, colour or texture of the wallpaper you pick.
Once the aesthetics are out of the way, get down to the nitty gritty of considering aspects like measurements, lining, tools, etc, that you’ll need. As I’ve learnt, there’s a lot that goes into creating that smooth, flawless desired outcome. To save you potentially crazy wall scrapping later down the track, when you’re ready for a change, it’s best to know what you’re doing. There’s a vast amount of professional advice that you can get online but if you’re not the kind to DIY, then get the needed professional help, it’ll be worth it in the end.
There it is. Another simple yet effective way to get you thinking about how you could creatively add some pizzazz to your space.
Wishing you luck as you get about it!
Till next time ?
