Wallpaper in Surprising Spaces

Over the years, I have become a big fan of wallpaper, especially for kids and other small spaces. Pattern can be overpowering, so I like to wallpaper just one wall in a room or add it in small doses. I love the surprise that wallpaper can bring to closets, a book shelf or other unexpected spaces.

Try creating a “jewel box” look in a little girl’s closet to make everything more special.

I have always wallpapered behind my bookshelves. It is a great way to add dimension and interest to the backdrop of a shelf.

On the door is always fun.

Start with a closet, bathroom or even a headboard—a little bit of wallpaper goes a long way.

Adding pattern to small spaces is a great way to make a room more “one of a kind.” It is a perfect way to bring your personality and design style into the room. Here are a few of my go-to wallpaper choices.


1. This pink and white damask is always charming for a baby girl.

2. Bold graphics like this cars paper from Dwell Studio make a big impact.

3. Stripes are always classic. Can’t go wrong with this blue and white aiden stripe.

4. A small ditsy floral is so sweet and fun. I love this lilac print from Designers Guild.

    This reminds me of the time I tried to cover a table with wallpaper, but it was such a disaster!

    Love the headboards idea. The wallpaper on a bookcase, not so much. I find that it makes the bookcase look cluttered and it takes away the “spotlight” from the decorative items you decide to put on the shelves.
