While many see this option as something of a throwback, wallpaper has found favor among more design professionals of late and for multiple reasons. “A graphic paper can define an activity area in an open-plan space; colorfully patterned papers can pull together a palette in a room, and gold, silver, or pewter leaf paper, which we use often, add stature, drama, and radiance when coupled with the right kind of lighting,” says Chicago-based designer Jessica LaGrange. “Wallpaper can hide cosmetic blemishes or introduce pattern in rooms where all the walls are taken such as a kitchen or family area with copious cabinetry.” Pogonitz, who likes using bold and detailed patterns on ceilings, says its important to do the same prep work as you would for any wall surface—”patch and smooth out the ceiling as needed.”
Therapy gardens neednt be large. In fact, a small footprint can make them easier and less costly to tend. They can be sited almost anywhere on a property, but terrain, a homeowners wish for privacy, and the amount of light needed for the desired plantings will help determine the best spot. Many therapy gardens are built in secluded places, away from a house and neighbors or at a different elevation, says Sacramento, Calif.–based landscape designer Michael Glassman.
Ceiling lights have changed a great deal in recent years; even housings for recessed cans reflect trends with different trim colors, materials, and diameters. Zuber likes placing them strategically around a ceiling rather than peppering a line of cans in the more common shotgun approach. Some also suggest eschewing the expected fixture at the center of a room, particularly in dining and master bedrooms, which gives greater flexibility when arranging furniture, says Amber Shay, national director of design studios for Meritage Homes, a Scottsdale, Ariz., builder of single-family homes.
Some prefer to locate them in the open for better views, to be social, or because of cultural traditions, says Topher Delaney, a garden designer with Delaney + Chin in San Francisco. “Many Hispanic families are very inclusive—at a hospital, weve seen 15 members of a family show up—while other groups want it quieter. You need to have different strategies to address different cultures,” he says. Accessibility is also an important feature in site selection. Langrall says its important to consider universal design principles for those with mobility issues or who want to age in place.
