Wallpaper is fun to work with—exciting even—what with the variety of designs available. You can make an accent wall with wallpaper, or if you want to make more impact, you can clad an entire room with it. Here are some ideas on styles you can choose from:

1. Whimsical

This wallpaper inspired by the woods makes for a great focal point in this bedroom. Complemented with crisp white and pops of green and yellow, the room exudes a happy, energetic vibe.

Get similar wallpaper at Wallcrown, Unit CS 242 MC Home Depot, 32nd St. cor. Bonifacio Blvd., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.

2. Moody

Make a space look edgy and sophisticated with dark wallpaper. Geometric design keeps this room from looking gloomy. You can use wallpaper if you want to draw attention to a particular spot in a room—in this case, it’s the TV. 

3. Subdued

If you want something moody and dramatic but find black too strong, choose gray wallpaper. Interior designer Gelo Del Mundo anchored this dining area using gray wallpaper with botanical prints. This wallpaper is also a gender-neutral choice. 

4. Youthful

Interior designer Wilan Dayrit added personality to this room occupied by a teenage girl using floral wallpaper. He complemented it with distressed furniture pieces to keep the look young and chic.

Find similar wallpaper at Studio Eleven, MG Bldg., 150 Amorsolo St., Makati City. 

5. Bold 

You can choose either a wallpaper in a bold color or a wallpaper with vibrant prints. Interior designer Van Acuna-Solana spuced up the walls of this English garden-inspired unit with floral wallpaper to keep with the theme. You can complement a bold wallpaper with another wallpaper that has a subdued design. You can also use different wallpapers that have similar prints in the other areas of your home.
