Use wallpaper to define empty spaces

An awkward nook or unused corner at home should be seen as an opportunity to express yourself! Create a focal point by working with an interesting chevron-print wallpaper in gray. Try this option for your foyer or entryway and use it as background for a charming country-inspired vignette.

Showcase your favorite pastime

There are different kinds of wallpaper available in the market today—some with quirky colors and others depicting landmarks and destinations. If you love books and words, you can choose a wallpaper with scribbles and quotes. This option can instantly give your space a cozy, bookstore vibe.

Avoid a cluttered look

Since you'll be working with patterns and colors, you need to achieve balance and avoid a loud and disorganized space. Keep it simple by opting for solid-colored and neutral furnishings. Pair it with well-selected decor pieces, too.
