Artistic Wallpaper – Embracing Your Flair

Wallpaper is a fantastic way to up the style ante of any room in your Chicago home. Wallpaper is simple to install, lasts for years, and offers endless style. Sure, you can use average hardware store paint to cover your walls, but we’re here to talk about using artistic wallpaper to bring phenomenal flair to your home. 

Textured Wallpaper

We love textured wallpaper. It’s unique and exciting and adds an undeniably artistic quality to a space. Of course, you can use it to create a focal point or feature wall, but it’s also great when you want something outside the ordinary without going for a full-on patterned look. Use textured wallpaper to add dimension to smaller spaces; textures with vertical lines make ceilings appear taller for a more spacious-looking room. 

Pairing Wallpaper with Benjamin Moore Paint

While you can wallpaper all four walls, papering one or two can achieve an outstanding appearance. Start with the wallpaper and use it to choose Benjamin Moore paint colors. A fail-proof tactic is to select a shade on the wallpaper and use it on the adjacent walls. Another option is to use a neutral paint color to allow the wallpaper to be the showstopper. 

Patterned Wallpaper

Patterned wallpaper makes it effortless to give your walls picturesque appeal. We suggest using patterned wallpaper as the foundation for the room’s decor, especially if it’s a bold print. Choose a pattern that blends well with your home’s design. A classic floral wallpaper won’t look its best in a sleek, contemporary space. Keeping scale in mind is also vital; a large, busy pattern will overwhelm a small space. 

Uncommon Places to Use Wallpaper

Perhaps you’re hesitant to commit to wallpapering a significant portion of a room, or you and your partner can’t agree on a style. You don’t have to resign yourself to a lifetime of ordinary walls. Experiment with an exotic wallpaper by placing it on archways or built-ins. You can also use it on one of the most unanticipated spots in a room - the ceiling. Do you have a piece of wood furniture in desperate need of refinishing? Wallpaper it instead and enjoy the one-of-a-kind aesthetic.
