Wallpaper is back!

There is no doubt that Wallpaper, even the most common wallcovering, can totally change the feel of a room creating varied light and color effects. For a while wallpaper was unpopular, most likely because it gave the impression of a dated look. But today, wallpaper is coming back strong. Tammy Billings in her article Wallpaper Trends

Wallpaper can be an Art of its own, especially when it’s hand-painted–in the form of a mural
or a scene. This takes a skilled hanger to install it and can be expensive.
Generally speaking though, wallpaper is affordable, easy to install and fairly easy to clean and maintain.
Here are some tips on How to Prepare Wallpaper for Hanging the Professional Way by James Beattie
Designer’s Tips

Wallpaper Borders. They can be placed at chair rail height or close to the ceiling or they can
be mitered, creating a frame on the wall, even around doors and windows. Being well
coordinated with the main patterns is what to shoot for.

Patterns and Scale. When you shop for wallpaper, try to visualize the pattern you see in the
book in the real size of your room. Beautiful patterns can be deceiving to the actual scale
of the room.

Samples and Lighting. Always use samples and take the time to look at them during
different times of the day. In this way you get a clearer sense how colors and designs
perform under different light and how they co-relate with the rest of your décor.

Relation of Rooms. Before you make a commitment to a pattern, consider the relation of the
room you are wallpapering with the adjacent rooms. Try to avoid using clashing, overly busy
or irrelevant patterns in adjoining rooms.
