Here's some ideas for your next project...
Make any photograph into a wallpaper pattern. Just click on the link below and upload your photo in the "Design Wallpaper" section. Choose the water activated smooth type of paper or the non-woven wallpapers for the best results.
Use lighting to emphasize a textured wallpaper.
Individual Beatles sheet music hung like the wind blew them on the wall in this Beatles themed powder room. I have also used old recipe books in the same manner in a kitchen.
You can frame up the left over wallpaper and hang them on the opposite wall of your accent wall that has the same paper. Pick up some cheap frames at a thrift store, spray paint them and add your wallpaper.
Use a large pattern on a tall wall to draw the eye up.
Textured anaglyptic wallpapers can be painted any color you wish. This not only adds texture to a room, but color and interest too.
This is a photograph of the ocean. I copied it 4 ways by flipping it and reversing it. Then I lined it up to create a pattern when put together 32 times. We use this coffee table everyday! Idea credit to Michele my talented designer wife!
I could have started this pattern anywhere in the room, but I decided to make it look like the smoke pattern was coming out of the light. Sometimes it's a good idea to let your pattern play with certain objects in the room.
Use a large and exciting pattern on an accent wall when you have a small or narrow entry way or odd wall.
