Wallpaper as art

If you love the new papers available, but are hesitant to cover wall-to-wall, try a small dose of a favorite print (or two.) I combined two separate papers to create this modern tiger-in-the-jungle collage that I have framed in my office.

For this group of accessories designed with a seaside cottage in mind, I had a fabric liner made for the beach pail (great for storing extra towels by the door) and then decoupaged the front with starfish from a wallpaper border.

This series of prints is actually three sections of a wallpaper that I couldn’t resist (I loved the traditional elements combined with the cat fancy).

A decoupaged rose adds style to a small pink pail ...

Try adding some wallpaper to the back of a bookshelf, on a folding screen, or cover the walls inside a closet. A small space, or item, is the perfect way to go bold with pattern for those too shy to attempt this ...
