Decorating With Striped Wallpaper
A striped wallpaper can be used to accentuate the height of rooms or even create the opposite effect with an intimate feel. You can decorate your room with striped wallpaper to achieve several different design effects. When most people think of stripes, vertical stripes come to mind. However, by turning the stripe on the striped wallpaper horizontally, so it resembles a railroad track, you get an unusual wallpaper design. Not only will the horizontal stripes give the room a wider appearance, but it also allows you to give movement to the room. Encourage the movement by placing mirrors, photographs and art objects along the horizontal lines and using furniture that mimics the lines on the wallpaper.
And you can make a room look taller by applying striped wallpaper with vertical lines, or create an accent wall by applying stripes to one wall in the room. Several choices include equally sized stripes of two or three colours, one large stripe separated by a smaller stripe or a pinstripe outlined in a different colour. Design a modern look in the room by using curved furniture, such as a humpback sofa, a sofa made from numerous round cushions or one with a polka dot fabric design.
