Q: Please help me decorate my walls. I’m thinking if my walls are decorated well, all my pieces would gel together. I love wallpaper, especially classic Victorian designs. Any suggestions?—Anonymous, from Davao

A: You are right! Wallpaper can instantly perk up a dull room and bring together all your things to make a unified space.

Whether it's a bold pattern or a subtly textured one, wallpaper will give your room that finishing touch. It can even act as a focal point, as a mock headboard or an accent wall.

Choose from hundreds of designs, textures, or colors available today. Check out Shell Canvas stores or Wall Crown in MC Home Depot Makati City.
