Home > Styling Trend: Framed Wallpaper Panels
Wall panelling is becoming increasingly popular within our homes. If you don’t want to cover all 4 walls of your room in one wallpaper design and are looking for an alternative to the feature wall trend, why not try creating framed wallpaper panels? It’s a great way to bring colour and pattern into your home and showcase your favourite wallpapers in a fun, yet sophisticated way. Here are a couple of examples with wallpapers from our Pavilion Collection showing how you can create panels with wallpaper; like framed works of art on your walls.
Start by choosing a wall colour to compliment your wallpaper design. In this instance we have chosen Little Greene paint in French Grey for the surrounding walls.
To give a sleek, contemporary twist, we’ve framed the wallpaper in a silver panel to match the legs of the console table by Andrew Martin, giving the look some synergy. Add colour with upholstery and soft furnishings to pull your look together and turn a simple hallway into a stylish, inviting space.
Why not create a dramatic framed headboard with your chosen wallpaper? Matching the back wall colour very closely with the background shade of the wallpaper and then painting the frame in a lighter shade will allow the wallpaper to take centre stage.
Here we’ve accessorised with green foliage and created an eclectic contrast of pattern by using geometric shapes in the cushions and soft furnishings. Finally let your wallpaper design sing by using simple, quality bedlinen.
Hallways and seating areas can be sumptuous and inviting. Create hints of glamour by using a soft, light-reflecting wallpaper like Lilliana in cream, which sits beautifully with Little Greene’s matt shade Slaked Lime. You have the subtle contrast of using matt and shine techniques that instantly adds interest to the eye. By placing two wallpaper panels side by side you can elongate your space making your walls look taller. Finally add a small seating area and cover in sheepskin or textured throws with complimentary cushions for that pop of colour.
