4 elegant wallpaper panel ideas
Wallpaper is very much back in vogue. If you don’t believe us, just take a look at the hottest wallpaper trends to look out for in 2022. But there is so much more that you can do with it than pasting it floor-to-ceiling. Wallpaper panelling is a great way to introduce colour and pattern into your decor without feeling like it’s taking over the room. Not only that, but it can also be a great way to create a sense of flow throughout your décor, using the same wallpaper in different rooms in different ways. We’re thinking outside the box and inside the panel with these 4 elegant wallpaper panel ideas to try at home.
Wallpaper panel idea: framed wallpaper panels
We like to think of our wallpaper designs as art. So what better way to show them off like a priceless painting than by framing them? We’re a little obsessed with @smoke.to.somer’s framed Gucci mural wallpaper. Going wall-to-wall Gucci might be a bit much (not to mention very expensive) but by framing a print or design you love it can actually be a comparatively cost-effective way to create drama and fill a wall that’s just missing something. If Gucci’s not quite your style, then why not take a look at these 7 mural wallpaper designs to liven up your wall.
Wallpaper panel idea: wardrobes
What better way to spruce up a pair of wardrobes than by creating a wallpaper panelling feature? If you don’t want to wallpaper the entire room, you can create an elegant, traditional decor bedroom with wallpaper panelling on your wardrobes. It adds fun and colour to what can otherwise be a blank space. Not to mention it’s a great option if you’ve got a lot of leftover wallpaper.
