We often strive to give a personal touch to the walls of our house. Walls have themselves a dominant impact on the whole environment; it’s therefore important to choose your decorations carefully. Wallpaper is an alternative to more traditional paints, tiles, stones or woods. An increasingly popular method, which can be easy to apply and aesthetically imaginative. Using simple rolls, glue and plastic coverings you can turn a wall into a painting, or visually expand tiny rooms and even define their functions.
It is necessary to underline that wallpaper attracts attention, and it’s therefore essential to study its position in relation to lights, windows, colours. So first of all adjust the non-papered walls, and then try to match the furnishings.
A tip is to avoid being too much; for example, don’t use papers on all the walls of the room – if you don’t have a real motivation to do so. Another idea is to opt for soft tones or to space out with neutral elements.
Here are some style inspirations that open up endless pages of solutions.
Flowers, branches, trees, images of all that is related to nature and living outdoor. Suitable for many environments and much used on free walls of the living room or on the back of the bed.
