Wonderful ways to use wallpaper

Do you love the look of wallpaper, but can't stand the thought of plastering an entire room in it?

This could be because you're short on time, or you think a room with four wallpaper-covered walls might feel a little too overwhelming.

Well, we've put together a few home decorating ideas that will solve this problem once and for all. Put your creative thinking cap on and consider the following ways to use wallpaper!

How about an accent wall? It may seem like we keep coming back to this area of interior design, but that's only because everyone else appears to be, too!

We think creating an accent wall with gorgeous wallpaper, such as Resene Wall Trends II: Bamboo 75155, is like having your cake and eating it, too.

It's the perfect way to incorporate a design that you love into a room that you think would be too bright and busy if used on every single wall.

A stylish way to tie in your accent wall with the rest of the room is by using that wallpaper as a border on its three companions.

You don't, of course, need an accent wall to use wallpaper as a border. Using wallpaper to frame your painted walls is another way to give a distinctive style to any room.

For instance, you can use a children's-themed wallpaper to create borders for your child's walls.

This will add playfulness and character to the room, making it more child-centric in a subtle but effective way.

Many people think wallpaper borders can only be placed at the very top of each wall.

Think again!

A border that's in the middle of the wall, or at another level that's a little less traditional, can have more impact than one that is placed near the ceiling. It will effectively draw the eye and give your room a modern feel.
