The most dramatic way to enhance the decor of a home is
through wallpaper supplemented by border for accent and fabric
for coordination. Paint may give a change especially when
textured or contrasted with patterns of some sort. But that
results in a more permanent effect. Modern wallpaper is
strippable. That means that what is today’s “new look” becomes
tomorrow’s “same old same old”. With wallpaper, it is a reasonably
simple task to redo everything.
Your limits are your imagination. Today go for the bold
colors of a large floral. Maybe next time you’ll want a more
muted effect. Everything is totally changeable with wallpaper.
It is the home decorator’s dream come true.
When you go
through the effort of doing a room with wallpaper, why not get
that extra effect of using the matching fabric.
Of course you
could do drapes and re-cover all the furniture. That would be a
really major project with a real big budget. But
consider a low-cost alternative. You could go with a pillow or
two. No matter how expensive a fabric is you would only need a
few yards at most. You can even use one yard to go on the table
with perhaps a flower on it.
The fabric that goes with the
wallpaper goes with your furniture and carpet. If that was not
true you would not want that wallpaper. So why not do the total
What if the budget really approaches zero? Why not
paint the room and use border as the accent? You get the
personality of the border with the low-cost of a plain paint
color. You could also use the border to separate different
colors in a room.
You could use the border as a chair rail in the dining room
with the top being painted different from the bottom. This idea
can be expanded to maybe wallpaper either top or the bottom.
You may want to paint the baby’s room and put the border
around the top. This could cover the beginners paint skill by
keeping the paint away from the ceiling. You got about five
inches which the border will cover. Certainly that is enough
space for you to keep the paint roller from hitting the ceiling.
