Wallpaper is Making a Comeback

(Continued)

Focal Point

Rather than hang a large piece of art, try applying a bold wallpaper print on a feature wall. For example, this Portland home, pictured below, uses wallpaper to define the wall behind the bed as a focal point.

For sale: $699,900

Texture

Wallpaper comes in a variety of materials and textures - from subtle to pronounced. New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's high-end, Manhattan penthouse, below, features wallpaper in micro-suede.

More affordable textures include jute, metallic or glasscloth, which is shown in the bathroom in this California apartment.

Jazz up Small Spaces

Despite what you would think, a small print or really intense print works well in bathrooms where there is little wall space. Juxtaposed against cabinets and tile, printed wallpaper is interesting, not overwhelming. This Sammamish, WA home features a modern print in its master bath.

Designer Papers

From vintage rolls to digitally reproduced, wallpaper is now available in a wide variety of styles. Actress Christina Ricci's home features a whimsical print that fits perfectly with the rest of the mid-century modern style of her Los Angeles home. Her house is currently available as a rental.
