KRISTAN CUNNINGHAM: Hi, there. I’m Kristan Cunningham with a GMC Trade Secret on how to use wallpaper to give your home some unexpected style.
Wallpaper has made such a comeback in the last few years. But if you’re not ready to fully take the plunge and do a whole room in a pattern, think about smaller ways that you can incorporate wallpaper, like a piece of art. This guy was actually a sample, a pretty large one, because the repeat itself, or size of the pattern, was very large. So one sample gave me a whole piece of art by popping it in a frame.
Well, one step further could be to take an actual piece of furniture – in this case a dresser – and just do the drawer fronts; simple little touch, but it added such impact and color to the piece. And if you’ve got moldings throughout your house – or, even better, paneled doors – think about adding wallpaper there.
Here’s a plain door. Here’s one with wallpaper. So much better, right? It’s a small accent, but again, if you’re not ready to take the plunge, this is the way to get your toes in the water and still get all the impact that wallpaper provides.
I’m Kristan Cunningham, and that’s your GMC Trade Secret about unexpected uses for wallpaper.
