I have always been a fan of the Trellis wallpaper by Manuel Canovas. The pattern is simple, geometric and oddly soothing. I was lucky enough to have a client in Los Angeles who has the same love, and we decided to use it to add a graphic pattern to her nursery ceiling. The result was fabulous. The pattern is so flexible and timeless, it will grow with her child from her toddler to teen years.
Yes, wallpaper like this is not inexpensive, but look at it as a piece of artwork. Especially if you plan on living in your house for years to come—go for it! Even just a splash on one wall like the design below by Amie Corley Interiors is enough to invoke more visual interest into the room.
For more of a dramatic statement, wallpaper all the walls. Although graphic in nature, the pattern has a very feminine feel in this girl’s room designed by Maya Williams and featured in Coastal Living Magazine.
The color waves available are shown below, available to the trade through Cowan & Tout. Sometimes you can find remnants for sale on ebay, a wonderful source to find small rolls of fabulous wallpapers.
