When it comes to making a statement from the living room, wallpaper is the very best buddy. Nothing sets the scene quite like a daring and graphic or vibrant and pattern-packed backdrop. Whether or not you want to get motivated by a subtle and soothing grasscloth or a splashy and whimsical mural, these living room wallpaper notions will do the trick.
A Textured Neutral
Grasscloth is the best wallpaper for extra texture which doesn't stand out additional statements throughout a room. Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullardbrought this living room to life using luxe throw pillows, bold patterns, and vibrant upholstery.
Who needs books when you can have book-printed wallpaper? |} One hundred percent kidding, we definitely prefer actual books. But a fun metafictional wallpaper like this at a study will improve the theme with a sense of humor and fashion, as from the sitting room designed by Martyn Lawrence Bullard.
Modern Meets Traditional
contemporary self portrait by Chuck Close is a bold contrast with the chinoiserie wallpaper (Iksel's Eastern Eden) behind it in this Miles Redd-designed home. |} The contrast doesn't stop there: Redd continued to venture beyond layout convention by incorporating contrasting stone tones and mixing contemporary furniture styles with antique pieces. Oh--and believe it or not, the lime green chair is from Ikea! |} Evidence even the best designers love a Great Deal
This Parisian apartment by Studio Razaviis a lesson in monochromatic decorating with spirit. |} The beautiful mural wallpaper sticks to the standard type of the Victorian architectural components while still feeling nostalgic in black and white. In contrast, the snowy linen slip-covered couch feels much more casual and while the porcelain decoration adds some intrigue with geometric shapes.
Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
In the dreamy pastel pinks and purples into the Art Deco-inspired routine, this wallpaper at a 2LG Studio-designed living room is as beautiful as it gets. We love how the inky black painted fireplace speaks about the moody framed artwork, both of which contrast with the candy wallpaper as well as sweeter and intimate floral arrangement on the mantel.
