Subtle Statements

Wallpaper is no longer a thing of the past, and I love that.  It’s such a great way to add texture, color, and impact to a room.  One of my favorite ways to use wallpaper is as a subtle statement — an example of this would be a bolder pattern in a lighter color.  Using wallpaper like this is a sure way to create a space with personality without it being too over the top.

A delicate pattern rests on the ceiling of this nursery.

And speaking of ceilings, how about this pretty pattern?

How gorgeous is the textured paper in this office?  And that lucite Zig Zag chair — I want it desperately.

So cute.  A little floral motif.  🙂

LOVE this laundry room papered in toile by Erin Gates.  A seriously perfect choice.

And while we’re on the subject of laundry rooms, how pretty is this?  The calming, subtle blue is lovely.

Another amazing toile rendition.  This one, in a little girls’ room, is used expertly — a grown-up pattern in a colorway that can be both young and mature.  This is a pattern that truly will grow with your child.

I seriously could not love this space more.  Do you see how the chair backs are sort of repeated on the walls?  Beautiful use of three-dimensional design.

And in a more traditional light…  🙂
