While its still common for designers and homeowners to apply wallpaper on all four walls of a room, using it on a single accent wall is a growing trend. This is commonly seen behind a bed, atop a ceiling, or around a fireplace to create drama, Pogonitz says. Kristin Barnett, a Nashville-based designer, stager, and color expert known as “the Decorologist,” also applies wallpaper to the back of bookcases. But she avoids using it below chair rails or as a room border, which she says dates the look.Thomas suggests giving wallpaper a new twist by using it in ways it wasnt necessarily intended. “I like to think outside the box and install a stripe vertically or horizontally, cut it into squares or triangles, create unique patterns, or use it on furniture,” he says. Many removable peel-and-stick wallpapers are now available in more patterns and colors and often at a lower price than traditional papers. They can work well for those who are DIY enthusiasts but dont plan on staying in their homes or apartments over the long term.
But many design pros offer caveats with this approach. Powell cautions that wallpapering both a ceiling and walls can look excessive, so she recommends covering one or the other. LaGrange warns against using paper with a definite directional cue, such as those with a clear top and bottom, since it wont be read “correctly” from a visual standpoint. Barnett, who trains stagers, suggests avoiding wallpaper on the ceiling when selling. “Its so taste-specific and many are still scared of paper,” she says. One way to hedge bets is to suggest one of the newer easy-to-remove papers from sources like Chasing Paper.
