Funderar du på ett litet lagom projekt i höst? Då kanske du ska tapetsera om.
Som ständig förespråkare för målade väggar får jag ändå medge att tapeter förmår att förändra ett rum på ett sätt som färg aldrig kan. Medan färg är ”platt, kan en tapet tillföra en annan sorts dimension till ett rum. Och numera svämmar ju marknaden över av tapeter i alla stilar. Här kommer ett smakprov!
Thinking about a smaller home project this fall? Then maybe wallpapering is something for you.
As a constant advocate of painted walls, I have to admit that wallpaper can transform a room in a way that paint just can’t. While paint is “flat”, wallpaper add a different dimension to a room. And nowadays there is so much to chose from, in every kind of style. I give you a tasting below!
Loft living? Chose an interesting wallpaper instead of covering the wall with art. Wallpaper from Eskayel.
Create a reading nook for the dark fall evenings. Find cheap old books at an antiquarian.
Almost as paint—buy the water colour mural at Etsy.
Bring on the bling! Gold is actually more neutral than one might think and would look excellent in a diningroom. Wallpaper by Hygge & West.
Instead of tiling. Put a sheet of glass in front if there is water close by.
Graphic patterns look nice in smaller areas like an entrance. Add wooden furniture for extra warmth. Wallpaper by Ferm Living.
Invite the kids to an enchanted forest. Beautiful wallpaper from Nathalie Lété.
If your home is filled with midcentury finds, complement the furniture with a wallpaper that echoes the aesthetic of the era. A vintage inspired palm leaf pattern would look nice in a bedroom or an entrance. Cole & Son has similar.
You can very well use a wallpaper in a bathroom as long as it’s not in direct contact with water. A powder room is a good place to use a daring pattern like this by Fornasetti—a small space, it’s not very expensive to replace it if you get tired of the look.
A chevron pattern adds a graphic punch without being overwhelming. A striped wallpaper would give the same effect.
Add a new dimension! The graphic wallpapered ceiling together with a sputnik chandelier adds modern coolness to this simple office, while a soft star pattern would look great in a nursery.
Create a statement punch with a graphic wallpaper—but beware that you can overdo it. One single wall is eye-catching while an entire room would be dizzying. Medallion wallpaper by Farrow & Ball.
Vertical lines gives the illusion of higher ceilings. Horizontal on the other hand “lowers” the impression and is suitable for large rooms with high ceilings.
Don’t dare or want to to wallpaper the whole room? Dress up some panels that easily can be moved and act as paintings.
Use a spare piece to cut out a figure of your choice for the nursery. Grown up and childish at the same time.
Geography lessons every day! Put a world map mural in a kids room and add pins to every place you’ve been.
