The thought of wallpaper can make anyone cringe; many spent hours scraping, stripping, and banishing garish prints from home walls turn of the century. But vintage wallpaper is making a comeback. This trend isn’t your grandmother’s gaudy, frilly prints, though. Timeless patterns – botanical, geometric, and damask – are being reimagined to suit the 21st century. When done with modern sensibility, this style adds a bold yet elegant look to any room.
How can you get in on the trend? Here are a few tips.
Choose Bold, Graphic Patterns
Pick a classic design and pair it with modern colors to create a perfect mix of vintage and contemporary style.
Play With Scale
Don’t let a pattern overwhelm a space. Try enlargening or shrinking a print to tailor your room.
Accent One Wall
If you don’t want to commit to wallpapering an entire room, simply apply it to one wall to make a trendy statement.
