Wallpapers aren’t just back in style, they’re back with a vengeance. Big, bold patterns are a great way to make a bold statement.You can’t get much bolder than Marimekko’s Unikko pattern. Try it on one wall, or all four in a small area like a hallway.
Bedrooms are a favorite place for a patterned wall. Anna French’s Glamour Collection is a particular favorite of mine.
If you want to use bold patterns like this, here are some tips:
- Try a colored pattern on one wall. Paint the other 3 in a matching color.
- Cover all four walls in a small space. This is the best way to make use of a bold pattern. A large room might create a kaleidoscope effect.
- Don’t stop at the walls – think about the ceiling, too. A powder room would look terrific covered in a bold print. Use a matching fabric on the window.
Are you brave enough to try a big, bold pattern?
