If it comes to creating a statement from the living space, wallpaper is the very best friend. Nothing sets the scene like a daring and graphic or colorful and pattern-packed backdrop. Whether you want to get inspired by a soothing and subtle grasscloth or a splashy and whimsical mural, these living room wallpaper ideas will do the trick.
A Textured Neutral
Grasscloth is the perfect wallpaper for extra texture that doesn't drown out other statements throughout a space. Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullardbrought this living room to life with luxe throw pillows, bold patterns, and colorful upholstery.
Who needs books when you can have book-printed wallpaper? |} One hundred percent kidding, we certainly prefer actual books. However, 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 made by Martyn Lawrence Bullard.
Modern Meets Traditional
This modern 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 comparison doesn't stop there: Redd continued to venture outside layout convention by incorporating contrasting jewel tones and mixing modern 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 together with soul. |} The gorgeous mural wallpaper sticks to the standard style of the architectural components while still feeling edgy in white and black. In contrast, the white linen slip-covered sofa feels more casual and while the porcelain decor adds some intrigue with geometric shapes.
Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
From the dreamy pastel pinks and purples to the Art Deco-inspired pattern, 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, each of which contrast with the candy wallpaper as well as sweeter and romantic floral arrangement on the mantel.
