Wallpaper got a bad rap after years of overuse in the 70s. Today it’s back and used in a much more restrained way. As a focal point in a room, consider getting your feet wet by simply decorating one wall for a dramatic effect.
Tropical palm leaves from Cole and Son on this bedroom wall act like a headboard.
It’s cold outside but why go out when you can grab a cup of coffee or hot cocoa with the kids and enjoy a little down time in your own slice of paradise? These days it’s out with the formal (and stuffy) living room and in with the casual eat-in kitchen/family room. Make the area where the family congregates for breakfast, snacks and even homework a cozy and stylish nook by incorporating a banquette (built-in bench). Have fun mixing and matching chairs with interesting upholstery to reflect your own personal chic style.
