When it comes to making a statement from the living space, 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 area wallpaper ideas will do the trick.
A Textured Neutral
Grasscloth is the perfect wallpaper for extra texture that does not drown out other statements during a space. Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullardbrought this living area 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 real books. However, a fun metafictional wallpaper such as this in a study will enhance the theme with a sense of humor and style, as from the sitting area 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 in this Miles Redd-designed home. |} The comparison does not stop there: Redd continued to venture outside design convention by integrating contrasting stone tones and mixing modern furniture fashions with classic pieces. Oh--and believe it or not, the lime green chair is from Ikea! |} Proof even the best designers love a Great Deal
This Parisian apartment by Studio Razaviis a lesson in monochromatic decorating with soul. |} The gorgeous mural wallpaper sticks to the standard type of the architectural elements while still feeling nostalgic in black and white. By comparison, the white linen slip-covered couch feels much more casual and whether the ceramic decoration adds some intrigue with geometric shapes.
Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
In the dreamy pastel pinks and purples to the Art Deco-inspired pattern, this wallpaper in a 2LG Studio-designed living area is as beautiful as it gets. We love the way the inky black painted fireplace speaks to the darkened framed art, both of which contrast with the candy wallpaper as well as sweeter and intimate floral arrangement on the mantel.
