Title Posted by Deborah (at) dvdInteriorDesign a Home Decor Websitea Connecticut-based Design Blog and portfolio collection of the latest trends and products as seen at trade shows and in the marketplace, including ideas for stylish living and inspirations.  

It's Back!
Yes, wallpaper is back and it's back in a big way!.  Despite all those tiring memories of scraping that old yellow wallpaper from the past (1970?) off of many walls to clean them up with a fresh application of paint, I am excited to add paper as an instant update to any room. The options available today have me forgetting those painful memories and wanting more.  It's looking great in the entry, the bathroom and on the ceiling. It is a welcomed trend shift for an update. 

So here are the latest prints and designs, let's take a look at everything from florals, to wood textures, murals and more.

Going for the BOLD
Look to add color and pattern for the ultimate impact.  Flavor Paper is my go to source for an interesting paper like this one shown above. 

Flavor Paper 

Wallpaper is a visual obsession lately . Fashion is first, and home decor usually follows. I'm a little obsessed with wallpaper lately so indulge me little bit. I like patterns, color and different motifs.

Drop it Modern is the added surprise that completes this luxurious Bath for HGTV House of Bryon. 

Green and white is a very popular color choice this year. (design note) This reflects not only the color of the year " Greenery", but also an interest in motifs again and desires to connect with nature.

My go to company for bold graphic and fragmented patterns in wallpaper and fabrics is definitely Thibaut. They have many colors and usually a coordinating fabric option for upholstery and drapery.

The garden inspired wallpaper in this dining room/ library is sophisticated, warm and welcoming. (Design Tip) Notice the extra drama added by the orange banding, the finishing touch on this wonderful room.

WOW!  Sometimes it takes a show house for a designer to show their creativity.  I am in love with he color explosion in this room. The papered ceiling is the final detail that brings it all together with continuity .

I especially like patterns, exotics, and find lately myself enamored with sexy moody florals (as seen @elliecashmandesign ). With the abilities offered through digital media, one can take a print and apply it to a variety of products. 

Seen at Architectural Digest Home Show

Because of the surface area it consumes, wallpaper packs a big punch. A wall covering is one of the easiest ways to add interest to any room. 
Above is a highlight from Instagram at the Architectural Digest Home Show.  Flavor Paper

Area Environments

"What sets us apart from other companies is that we are all artists creating wallpaper with artists' eyes. The care and time we take to create the best, most visually appealing paper has paid off for us; our customers recognize this as well and keep coming back for more. Starting Area is one of the most exciting things I've ever done. As we continue to seek out artists from around the world, our collection of unique designs will inspire new ways of relating to and using wallpaper. It is truly rewarding to share our love of art."

Great pattern for a ceiling. 

This is a great way to add a graphic pattern to your space.  The ceiling is often overlooked when is comes to thinking about pattern or color. The wall space has also been used wisely for storage and for maintaining a a clean look. 

Add personality to a bookcase.  

This wallpaper with its bold pattern adds personality and a pop to an otherwise nondescript bookcase.

MK Wallpaper 

Tastemaker: Poppytalk for Milton and King Wallpaper. Vibrant pastels are also very hot right now.  Really fun to pair vibrant colors into your accessories as well.

Lindsay Cowles 

"Lindsay Cowles Voted one of the “Top Emerging Artists” by Art Business News."

This is the paper you saw!  
Often someone will ask for a paper recommendation and while I have no favorites, this is one of my favorites. Lindsay is a contemporary abstract expressionist based in Richmond, VA.  She paints large-scale abstract paintings with bright, bold color and energetic movement.

Root Cellar Designs

Root Cellar Designs
Root Cellar Designs is a boutique Print Studio of wallpaper and fabrics founded and curated by friend and fellow interior designer Tamara Stephenson and her partner Susan Young. Shown above is a current installation in a powder room for Holiday House, NYC.  

Zoe Design
Beautiful installation by Zoe Design.  This looks like a handpainted mural, but it is finely detailed and 1/2 the cost since it is printed.

Another method for a fabric wall finish is Stenciling!This Fortuny Wall Stencil is named because the pattern is reminiscent of ones used in the famed Fortuny silks from Italy. It is perfect for creating fabric finishes, like the subtle stria technique shown here, done with solid, high contrast, or with the "lost and found" edges technique of the Faded Damask. 
Watercolor leaf pattern by Pixersize
Eco-friendly and free delivery, Pixersize not only has beautiful arrangements, they are also a great resource fo furniture makeovers, temporary papers and custom arrangments!
