5 Wallpapering Tips

Looking to wake up your walls? Whether you want your walls to scream your affinity for patterns or you want them to subtly tell a story, here are ways you can dress your walls like a boss!

Frame your paper

This is for all the busy mammas and tired daddys. Skip the glues and the messy mistakes and let your chosen wallpaper(s) instantly find their place in your home. Give the wallpapers the Louvre treatment by mounting those beauties on your walls using elegant frames. For a stronger statement mix different patterns, but make sure they complement the rest of your décor.

Here, Kristina Lindhe, founder and CEO of Lexington Company, chose the classic, but modern, broad block stripe, Dan. The wallpaper takes its name from American author Dan Brown, who wrote "The Da Vinci Code," among others.

Hip-height is right

Are you a parent to a graffiti tagging toddler aiming to be the next Banksy? Or is your pooch’s first order of business after a walk in the park to paw and scratch your walls? Well, let’s tell you that wallpaper isn’t out of the picture for you. Start your wallpaper from the ceiling and stop at hip-height. This technique will give the illusion of a higher ceiling and if you’re going with bold patterns and colors, the wallpaper won’t overload your senses. Oh, just don’t forget to add molded trims for a cleaner look.

Here's a great example of a wallpaper that stops at hip-height. Like many of our wallpapers, the Emily wallpaper is named after one of America’s foremost poets, Emily Dickinson. It's inspired by a fragment of old Cretonne-patterned wallpaper found in a New England archive. Bold tree patterns with birds like these were popular in the U.S. in the late 1600s, and they're just as right now.

This historical survey of New England and the town of Lexington makes for a great accent wall in your hallway or any other room. The map comes from a chapter on New England in "The United States Baedeker’s Handbook for Travelers" from 1899. As you can see in the photo above, you don't need to have similar-looking wallpapers in your home. Every part of your home is unique.

Mix and Match

With a plethora of wallpapers to choose from why stick with only one? Go with different wallpapers for different parts of your home to elicit different moods. Again, the key to a sophisticated home is to have your wallpaper complement the rest of your décor.

Go higher, get creative

Who ever said wallpapers are for walls only? Use them to adorn your ceiling (just make sure you have light walls, so your room doesn’t feel heavy), cupboards, old drawers, doors, stairways, bathroom etc. There really isn’t any rule as to where you can use your wallpaper. And the best part is that if you have a surplus of your favorite wallpaper, you can use it to wrap presents, or cover your books and journals.

Another fine example of wallpaper that stops at hip-height. The Harriet wallpaper is inspired by the first pioneers' use of medallion patterns. The patterns are among the most classic of designs and have been around as wallpaper since the first settlers came to New England.

Bring an attractive touch of the seaside to your stairway. Here, we've used our Herman Wallpaper with a classic mussel pattern to elevate the space. The pattern comes from a small detail in the Harriet medallion pattern that we liked so much we turned it into a wallpaper.

Wallet-friendly walls

If you’re on a budget, choose to decorate parts of your wall or pick one wall as an accent wall. A bold and bright wallpaper will make a room look smaller, so this is a way for you to save money without sacrificing style. Use molding trims to accentuate the wallpaper or use your wallpaper on a wall with a window to break up the pattern and save on some wallpaper. Another wallet-friendly tip is to let your wallpaper double as a headboard in your bedroom. It’s a cute, chic and cheap way of decorating a bedroom.

Named after Mark Twain, author of "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer," this wallpaper is great to accentuate your favorite reading nook complete with comfy chair and blankets. This design harks back to the old method of wallpapering using newspaper and book pages. Mark is made up of pages from the chapter on New England in the old guide book "The United States Baedeker’s Handbook for Travelers" from 1899.

Kristina's stairway showcases three styling tips for a warm and pleasant space. Notice how she didn't cover every wall, how she uses her stairway to display her interior design chops and lastly, how she uses the blue chair and ornaments to complement the striped wallpaper. Kristina also pays homage to her journey as a business woman using the Louisa Wallpaper which is inspired by the classic striped work shirt — the shirt from which the idea for our bedding was born.
