Add a focal point
The addition of a tranquil blue floral print in this bed niche, creates a focal point for the room, while adding to the serene mood of the space. This effect can also be achieved on a bare wall, by adding a bit of moulding and a wallpaper that suits your look.
Revive a backsplash
Want to refresh your backsplash without the expense of having it tiled? Wallpaper is a perfect choice. For this application, select a wallpaper that is suitable for high traffic areas, washable vinyl is ideal.
Add a pop of color to built-ins
A vibrant floral print provides a pop of color, and pattern to these built-ins. Depending on your space, grasscloth, small prints, geometrics and mirrored papers are all excellent options for enhancing the visual element of your built-ins.
