Framing the Walls

I love wallpaper these days, just not necessarily stuck on walls. Framed patterns can give life and color to a room, but without being overwhelming in a small space, or expensive in a large one. And, if your landlord isn't into "love and leave it" with how you treat your walls, framed wallpaper is your best bet to getting a personalized look with panache. Great website Design Your Wall has hundreds of marvelous papers - and most are purchasable by the single roll. Grab a few inexpensive frames from Hobby Lobby or your local consignment store, and wah-la, you're in business! Below are some example rooms, and paper choices for your aspirations (all papers from Design Your Wall).

Graphic punch in a plain space. An easy way to coordinate your look. And if you already have a collection of colors for a room, just find a paper that matches!

A new twist on "framed paper" - a stunning accent wall with frames that enhance instead of cover.

Botanicals can look stunning - a little abstract, a little natural.

Framing a chinoiserie pattern can be lovely - many of the papers available feature large scenes that make perfect pictures.

Even Bunny Williams gets into the act with a few choice metallic prints. By varying the patterns and framing in glass, the look becomes textured and luxurious.
