When it comes to creating a statement from the living room, wallpaper is the best friend. Nothing sets the scene like a bold and graphic or vibrant and pattern-packed background. Whether you want to get inspired by a subtle and soothing grasscloth or a splashy and whimsical mural, these living room wallpaper ideas will do the trick.
A Textured Neutral
Grasscloth is the best wallpaper for extra texture which does not drown out other statements throughout a room. Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullardbrought this living room to life with luxe throw pillows, bold patterns, and vibrant 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 such as this in a research will enhance the subject 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 an chinoiserie wallpaper (Iksel's Eastern Eden) supporting it within this Miles Redd-designed house. |} The comparison does not stop there: Redd continued to venture beyond layout convention by integrating contrasting stone tones and mixing contemporary furniture styles with classic pieces. Oh--and believe it or not, the lime green chair is from Ikea! |} Proof even the top designers love a Great Deal
This Parisian apartment by Studio Razaviis a lesson in monochromatic decorating together with soul. |} The beautiful mural wallpaper sticks to the traditional style of the Victorian architectural components while still feeling nostalgic in white and black. In contrast, the snowy linen slip-covered couch feels more casual and whether the ceramic decoration adds some intrigue with geometric shapes.
Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
From the dreamy pastel pinks and purples to the Art Deco-inspired routine, this wallpaper in a 2LG Studio-designed living room is as beautiful as it gets. We love how the inky black painted fireplace speaks about the darkened framed art, both of which contrast with the sweet wallpaper and even sweeter and intimate floral arrangement on the mantel.
