Unusual places to use wallpaper
Using wallpaper in unusual places makes you look like a real design pro. Rose says, “As a designer, it excites me to use wallpaper in the most unexpected places—ceilings, closets, mudrooms, even furniture.”
Using Rose’s suggestion, put wallpaper on the ceiling for a real surprise. Wallpapers with a sky design—think clouds, blue sky, or even stars—make the ceiling feel higher, like an endless sky above your room. Or use a dark wallpaper to provide a deep contrast with the walls.
Rose suggests revamping an old dresser with a fun wallcovering. How cool would it be to open the drawer and see some bedazzled wallpaper inside?
Kitchen cabinets are prime real estate for wallpaper according to Rose. Take the doors off and line the inside of the cabinets with an exciting wallpaper pattern.
Put your imagination and creativity to work using this great design tool in places no one else would think of.
