Whether it is adding color, pattern, style or texture, there are few easier ways of transforming the ambiance of an interior than wallpaper. The last few years have seen a surge in wallpaper patterns, and all those who shunned it in the 90s and worked super-hard in trying to scrub wallpaper off of their bedroom and living room walls are once again shopping for new patterns! While we will not call it a full-blown revival, wallpaper sure ranks high on the trends chart in 2015. Adding it to the dining room is one of the easiest ways to get in on the wallpaper bandwagon before trying it out in the bedroom or living area.
There are plenty of fun ways that you can add wallpaper to your existing dining room. There is no lack of patterns or colors to choose from, and you can pick one that exactly matches your dining room ambiance. So delve in and find out more about adding wallpaper to the dining room –
1. Enliven the Walls
This is an obvious and easy starting point for every homeowner, as you can simply drape the walls in a wallpaper of your choice. The wallpaper that you pick must not only complement the theme of the room, but should sync with the existing decor and accessories. While cool wallpapers with neutral hues are generally the preferred choice and easier to work with, do not miss out on the opportunity to add color to the dining room with wallpaper. As the inspirations below showcase, it can be a world of delightful fun!
2. Think of Texture
When you start browsing through wallpaper choices, think about things beyond just color and pattern. Maybe what your monotonous, contemporary dining room needs is a bit of texture. Grasscloth wallcoverings or even faux leather wallpapers can get this done with ease and elegance. There are other amazing wallpapers around that can create the visual effect of materials ranging from metal to cork!
3. Geometric Beauty
Retro, midcentury modern, vintage and art deco; the trend these days is to bring back patterns and designs that were considered hot several decades ago! Take advantage of this change in the decorating cycle and use bold wallpaper with fun geometric patterns to add to the vibe of your midcentury or vintage dining room. These ultra-cool designs work beautifully in minimal settings as well.
4. Dress up the Ceiling
There are plenty of times when we are left wondering why homeowners do not pay more attention to the ceiling and the untapped potential that it holds. (Really, do look upwards sometimes and move away from boring white.) Well, now is your chance to add spunk and sizzle to the dining room with an unexpected twist by opting for a wallpapered ceiling. You can still leave the walls as they are and let the bold wallpaper steal the spotlight for a change.
5. Go Quirky!
Maybe you prefer a dining room that is playful, unique and even a touch eccentric with its special design. Styles such as bohemian, shabby chic and eclectic get a great lift when wallpaper that is equally unconventional shapes the backdrop. This approach looks even more engaging in the case of small dining areas in an open plan living space, as it gives the tiny nook a distinct identity and aura of its own. Try this quirky variation this summer and you will be pleasantly surprised!
6. Frame It with Flair
We have come across several Decoist readers who have complained about trying out new wallpaper patterns because they are just not sure about making such a major commitment in one leap. So here is a wonderful little bridge for those with design commitment issues, as you can test the waters out with these lovely framed wallpaper pieces. Just hang them as art pieces in the dining room, and if you really love them, you can think about a quick overhaul in the coming months.
7. Define the Accent Walls
This one is really simple, and it is pretty much the same approach you take towards an accent wall in the dining room that uses paint. Take a different route this time by doing away with paint and opting for wallpaper instead. As we discussed earlier, wallpaper gives you greater variety in terms of pattern and finish when compared to paint. Make sure, though, that you have the right lighting to let the accent wall shine through.
8. Striped Splendor
Stripes and wallpaper seem like the perfect combination of two current, hot style statements! But instead of draping all the walls in the dining room in stripes (which can become monotonous), we suggest you take a sleeker option by using the striped wallpaper to highlight a specific architectural feature or nook in the room. Smaller stripes are ideal for more modern settings, while traditional dining rooms benefit from broader strokes. And then there is the exciting chevron pattern for those who wish to mix things up to drive away boredom.
9. Wallpaper Halfway Up
They say that the classic, tried and tested methods are precisely that for a reason; because they work so well across eras. Using the wallpaper halfway up in the dining room is one such timeless approach that never fails. It gives the room a tasteful elegance that is unmatched and turns even the gaudiest wallpaper into a visual treat.
Bathroom Wallpaper, Inspired by Houzz
Today’s blog post gains its inspiration from a platform which us at World of Wallpaper are LOVING at the moment; Houzz. For those unfamiliar with the site, Houzz is an interior design, ‘social-media-like’ website used by homeowners looking for home decor inspiration, businesses exhibiting their design projects, and nosey people like me who just enjoy scrolling through pictures of other people’s immaculate homes. Not only can you get lost scrolling through people’s kitchens for hours, you can also get involved in discussions with professionals and other home-owners, exchanging words of advice for your own or others design projects.
My chosen destination of the day was bathrooms and I quickly became drawn to projects where feature wallpaper had been used to brighten up an otherwise small and boring part of the house. Especially for those who are yet to brave statement wallpaper in the more sociable spaces of their house, making use of elaborate colours and patterns in the bathroom or toilet is a great way to release a burst of creative energy. At the end of the day, who can complain about their toilet experience when they share it with jungle animals?
Here are a few of the bathrooms that steal the show of the house itself...

Holden Lemur Wallpaper in Silver
During the Houzz search for the best statement bathrooms we came across one of our very own Wallpapers. Similar to the other bathrooms in this post, the toilet room is separated with a wood panelling up to the centre of the room, toning down the busyness of the wallpaper. This toilet room features the Holden Lemur Wallpaper in Silver (HLD046) to bring the jungle into your home. The wallpaper is fun and colourful, making the small and otherwise boring corner of the house a more interesting space. Using a statement character wallpaper such as this in your bathroom is a perfect solution for when you fall in love with a design but it does not fit in with the style of the rest of the home. I guarentee it will be a favourite room amongst your guests!

Fine Decor Solstice Palm Leaf Wallpaper
Again using the wood panelling to separate the wall, this bathroom has a more vintage feel due to its older toilet model and use of gold throughout the accessories of the room. The dark green shade of the tropical leafs next to the ‘Hawaiian’ blue panelling makes the toilet have a warmer feel to the room compared to the white light of the previous bathroom. Green goes great with gold, especially if you want to create a warm feeling in an otherwise dingy room, so take this room as inspiration for your own bathrooms. Compared to the wallpaper used in this bathroom, our Solstice Palm Lead wallpaper has a white background which is a brighter alternative to the black in the image. Nevertheless, the green of the leaf still matches perfectly with blues, golds and yellow tones.

Arthouse Oslo Floral Trail Wallpaper
This bathroom is the most subtle and subdued of the lot, however adds a splash of creativity to the room to break up the white from the cabinets. Using wallpaper as a boarder is a great idea if you don’t want to commit to the entire wall. Especially if all your furniture and decorations are relatively plain, then patterned wallpaper is a great idea to jazz the room up. Statement wallpapers do not have to make themselves heard through bright and bold colours and patterns. Simple and muted wallpapers such as this makes a statement in its own way as it is a change from the plain white/cream bathroom. This wallpaper adds a personal and homely touch to this bathroom, making it less uniform than the standard bathroom space.

Rasch Stripe Wallpaper Black and White
Here is an example of what happens when people REALLY love wallpaper and even use it on their ceiling! If anything, this is a great example of what to do when you just can’t choose which wallpaper to go for, use all three! The decor theme which seems to be favoured by designers at the moment is Art Deco, and this bathroom shows that off rather well. You can see a variety of shapes, from the classy black and white striped wallpaper, to the oblong shapes of the mirror and sink cabinet. This eclectic bathroom, despite its contrasting patterns and shapes, somehow... works. Don’t be afraid to try things out!

Direct Wallpaper Antique Bookcase Wallpaper
Finally, we have this illusion bookcase wallpaper. Books are a favourite companion in the toilet, so why shouldn’t there be a bookshelf in there too? Get a reminder to pick up that book that has been gathering dust on your bedside table every time you use the toilet by using a bookcase wallpaper, which is a firm favourite of ours at World of Wallpaper. Furthermore, when you have a smaller space to work with, like in narrow toilets such as this, illusion wallpapers such as this bookcase make the room look deeper due to the appearance of it being a bookshelf.
Well I hope this has inspired you to consider wallpaper in your bathroom/ toilet! We do recommend that you use 'Washable' wallpapers in your bathroom and toilets in the case that water splashes onto them. Don't forget to follow us on Houzz for latest updates of our wallpaper collections. Also, please share your own pictures of your wallpapered spaces on our social media; Facebook, Instagram, Pinterestand Twitter.
14 Extraordinary Wallpaper Looks
Wallpaper goes from strength to strength, with a huge range of patterns ready to liven up our homes. Be inspired by these design ideas
Popular designs right now include pared-back Scandi patterns, lush botanicals and winsome illustrations, along with digital graphics, geometrics and updated twists on traditional papers – think elegant English country houses and the creations of British design icon William Morris. Whether you favour a new design or a tried and tested classic, here are 14 styles to inspire you.
Damask is a classic pattern that still has style legs. Traditionally, damask designs were woven into wool, cotton or linen fabrics for use as tablecloths or sofa upholstery.
Many of today’s wallpapers are inspired by these delicate patterns of the past, but with a chic new twist. This muted design is a case in point: it’s elegant, simple and timeless.
The popularity of botanical prints shows no signs of waning. Plants, vines and flowers have long been a staple on wallpapers, but many of the latest designs have an easy-to-use simplicity – like this muted leafy number.
Choosing a soft, pale grey rather than a multi-coloured botanical design means the print won’t dominate the room or prevent things feeling restful (important in a bedroom), but the pretty pattern will still stand out.
If you want something more interesting than a simple bird or butterfly, there are some great beastly Victoriana papers and prints around right now. Look for the kind of fairy-tale animals that might have fallen out of Alice in Wonderland – flamingos, griffins, dodos – or, as here, an array of birds including puffins, jays and swans. One to fuel the imagination and create a conversation piece.
A colourful wallpaper can be an easy way to inject vitality and style into a room. Blue is big in interiors at the moment, and this gorgeous exotic design taps into the trend for bolder colour and pattern in a modern way. It also echoes the kind of jewel-rich colours and patterns you might find on Moroccan tiles.
Board game fanatic? Pick a wallpaper that reflects your personality. There are some great playful designs around at the moment, such as this Backgammon paper, which is witty, but also very stylish.
Also, don’t assume interesting patterns only work in big spaces. This print looks fantastic in this cute converted Victorian railway carriage.
Those of us scarred by memories of bad wallpaper from the 1970s and 1980s can take heart. The latest geometric prints are stylishly retro without being overbearing, including this Nova Mist wallpaper by Sandra Isaksson.
A bold design like this one can make a room, adding a cool vintage vibe. Team it with retro furniture, like this sideboard, and quirky prints. Pare back the look by only using the paper on a feature wall, then contrast with a light wood floor and white walls.
Once, fake was a byword for naff, but a new generation of quality papers mimicking other, pricier or more fiddly, finishes (bricks, wood, book spines, marble, even pegboard) has long put paid to that.
This Scrapwood wallpaper by Piet Hein Eek has become a bit of a modern classic in recent years, and recreates the kind of faded vintage boards that usually take decades to achieve. It’s much more interesting than another wall of neutral paint.
Illustration is also popular at the moment. There are lots of independent artists selling prints online, and this trend is creeping onto wallpapers, with many having a hand-drawn appearance (looking like something an artist might scribble with a pen, rather than the formal prints of yesteryear).
This cute Half Moon design, by Ferm Living, is a case in point. It’s fun and different, and instantly creates a stylish atmosphere.
The influence of William Morris, the celebrated 19th century Arts and Crafts designer, has never really waned – and his nature-inspired wallpaper designs (which you can still buy through Morris & Co) have rarely seemed more on trend. They’re ideal if you want to channel the Victoriana/Steampunk English country house vibe.
However, you can also find more modern papers inspired by his rich, dark colours and complex compositions. The designs pictured here manage to blend old and new motifs brilliantly.
The trend for birds on everything from mugs to cushions seemingly isn’t going anywhere fast – and our passion for our feathered friends is popping up on wallpapers. Choose a bird motif like this one by Louise Body: simple, modern and fresh.
Are full-on florals too twee or blowsy for you? A more pared-back folk print, like this one, could be the answer. Look for papers with a heritage feel that are printed using traditional techniques. They’ll create a subtly more elegant, upmarket and artisan feel in your room, especially if you opt for a matt finish over anything with a sheen.
A paper that’s mainly white may also feel less daunting to use for those just dipping their toe into the world of wallpaper.
A strong geometric can sometimes threaten to take over a room. But a more pared-back graphic design can be surprisingly easy to live with. This one adds a contemporary, Scandi feel thanks to its colour combo of grey, white and palest blue.
Try using graphic patterns on just one wall so the room doesn’t ‘close in’; team with simple wooden furniture for a timeless contrast.
Want your wallpaper to work extra hard? Choose a textured design in a dark colour for a dramatic effect. No animals were harmed in the production of this vinyl wallpaper. In black, it’s gothic and makes a big impact.
We all love maps on our walls (or so it seems according to the number on Houzz), and map wallpaper is increasingly a thing. This world map mural makes a brilliant feature in a child’s bedroom.
Alternatively, try a blown-up vintage map – it can make a captivating feature wall, especially if it ties into your local area’s history.
