Creative Ways to Use Wallpaper

Although most people are not wallpapering every inch of their walls these days, there are so many unique ways to use wallpaper in your home.  The trick is to use it in moderation, a hint here and there, as an accent wall, or in creative decorative ways.  Here are a few ideas :)

Wallpaper on the ceiling can be such a fun choice in certain spaces!  Using the right choice of pattern and color is important in this situation so that the room isn't overwhelmed by the wallpaper.  A dark color or intricate pattern would cause the room to feel smaller, so base your choice around the size and shape of your space.

Using wallpaper behind shelves creates such a fun pop of interest and color!  What's even better is that this is a very simple project.  Just remove the shelves, cut the paper to size, and glue it in place.

Using wallpaper on the bottom of stairs without carpet is such a unique and beautiful way to make your home feel personalized.  I love these numbered stairs, so cute!

I love the idea of using a fun graphic print wallpaper on one wall in a space to create interest.

Use wallpaper to breathe new life into a plain chest of drawers.  Using the paper only on the fronts of the drawers and doors creates and accent to the yellow color of the piece.

I absolutely love the way books look when they are wrapped in coordinating colors and patterns.  Use wallpaper to cover old books to create an accessory that adds a pop of fun color and pattern!
