How to Give Wallpaper Style

Wallpaper doesn't have to scream "tacky" or "tasteless." Learn how to pick the right print and how to keep it stylish once it's up.


Wallpaper is making a comeback. Use the easy ideas below to add pattern and interest to your rooms for not alot of money. 

  • Put pattern in unexpected places. Use papers with eye-catching prints to line a closet or dress up the back wall of a bookcase.
  • Jazz up a single wall. Cover just one wall if you’re afraid of making a commitment or worried about overwhelming your room.
  • Create architectural interest. Break the rules! Place bands of wallpaper horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Make a graphic statement with curvy motifs.
