Wallpaper dates back to the early 1800’s. Although some may say it reminds them of their early childhood homes and has become out of style, we’re totally vouching otherwise. Wallpaper is making its comeback in contemporary homes and feature walls have become the apple of every designer’s eye.
Feature walls express a new dialogue to communicate a completely unique atmosphere right at heart of your home. Adding feature wallpaper to your living room is an easy and effortless way to achieve great style in your gathering space.
Since, living rooms are generally the most spacious part of the home; it is the prime place to experiment with a refreshing feature wall; whether you live in a large home or a tiny apartment. Don’t limit yourself and your walls. There are so many design possibilities for an exquisite feature wall to amplify your living room into a space you can be proud to call home.
4 Things to Consider when Creating a Feature Wall for your Livingroom…
1. Wallpaper Scale
Pattern scale plays a significant role in the choice of wallpaper you choose in your living room. Feature walls opt for the opportunity to be bold and dramatic to add just the right amount of personality into your space.
This gorgeous abode features a large scale byzantium damask in a luxurious and elegant deep purple. The large scale damask feature wall really makes the room pop right out of its quarters and speaks volumes in rich personality.
Here you can see the difference between a large scale and a small scale damask. The smaller scale draws interest outward as the larger scale is more defined and dramatic.
2. Wallpaper Colour
Don’t be afraid to colour your world! Colours speak their own unique language that conveys specific atmospheres in relativity to mood and function. When I say colour, I’m talking about all the colours on the scale in any variations of hues and saturation values. Depending on your choice, you can achieve rewardingly beautiful spatial effects. Coloured feature walls generally pair well with a similar toned wall colour for the rest of the room.
If you’re a little iffy on a wild splash of colour, you can always incorporate a feature wall using a pattern in a subtle and softened neutral pairing. This elegantly modern print in cream adds the same amount of personality as it sits attractively behind a sleek white storage table.
There is an infinite amount of new and contemporary patterns to choose from to blast you out of the past. When deciding on a feature wall you can choose from themes of formal damasks, wispy florals, rigid geometries and the list goes on. Choose a pattern that best reflects your style and individuality to make your living rooms your own.
Dive into the dynamic world of shapes and organic forms. This feature wall of an intricate geometric pattern features a snippet from Van Gogh’s painting titled “Almond Blossoms” that adds both pop colour and a revamped version of a traditional floral pattern to this living room.
A new way to add visual texture to your walls is by… (You guessed it) using wallpaper! At the moment, faux wallpaper is one the most popular contemporary wall trends and really makes a space pop using the look of natural finishes. Some wallpapers even have a realistic tactile finish as an added bonus!
An English designer named Terence Conan believed that “The living room should be a place where we feel totally at ease – temple of the soul.”
A feature wall can really transform a bleak and boring living room into one that translates to its true meaning; a place that reflects life and soul. Now you can make the jump into the future of design and personalize your living room according to your own interests using wallpaper colours, patterns, scales and textures.
