How To Create A “Wow Factor” Room With Wallpaper

Hello again!   Happy to be back.  The first day of Autumn arrives in just two days.   If there are projects around the house you are looking to tackle, today is all about wallpaper.

We’ve all been there before: walking through a house or apartment, you enter a room and you do a double take.   “Wow!” you think, “how did they do this?” And then, you think: “how could I pull off something equally spectacular?”  That’s what this post is about: creating rooms with “wow” factors that delight you and your guest.

Creating such statement rooms in your home needn’t be expensive or time-consuming.   So read on to discover the secrets behind creating spectacular home décor.


Make it Monochrome

Black and silver are timeless color combinations that will always be in style. These monochrome hues are a popular choice among homeowners seeking to make an impact. While monochrome décor isn’t particularly glitzy, it’s a powerful visual style that makes a statement you can’t ignore. One option is The Hypnotist Mono wallpaper, a good example of how black and silver designs could add wow to your home.


White Out

The color white is often associated with understated spaces but used in the right way, white can create a show-stopping space. The interlocking circle wallpaper doesn’t deliver an explosion of color, but its catching pattern is guaranteed to impress your guests. This is a great choice if you want to create a modern space because it lets you experiment with the geometric trend that is popular right now.


Combine Different Time Periods

Why take inspiration from one time period when you can be inspired by many eras? This wallpaper channels various time periods, resulting in an eclectically modern update from the classic damask print. This design would look stunning in a living room or bedroom.

Think Pink

Pink isn’t the first color you’ll likely think of when creating a statement room, but this fresh design in vibrant pink and blue, adds charm and romance to a room.  Wallpaper can’t fail to delight.



The result is cheerful and colorful.   Floral wallpapers offer the perfect statement update for any room in the house and will become an instant talking point.  This is a great example of how one décor update can completely transform and dramatize a space.
