The Basement: Wallpaper Wants

by - Wednesday, May 12, 2010

With the basement reno, we plan to take out some walls and create a bigger open space. When you have a big space, it becomes important to have some focal points to draw your eye. One way to do that is to create an accent wall and we're planning to do that here:

You'll see this wall when you come down the hallway into the main area. Lucky for us, one of my favourite designers
Amy Butler (I swooned about her rugs here) is coming out with a line of wallpaper for Graham & Brown. Maybe one of these lovelies will grace our walls and bring some life and whimsy into the space. Aren't they all so fun?

  5. I'm not a super big fan of accent walls, but I love the wallpaper idea! I'd pick the 1st or 2nd one myself, but I'll look forward to seeing which you choose.

  6. I like the second and last one. Would your hubby be OK with the pink floral?:) In fact, may have to look at the last one for my daughter's room - it's so pretty.

  8. I also like the second one a lot. I wish I had the guts to do wallpaper, but I'm afraid I will get sick of it - and I've already ripped wallpaper out of 7 rooms, never again! ha

    Of course, wallpaper doesn't look like it used to...

  15. We recently hung wallpaper on one wall in our bedroom -- it's made a huge impact on the space!! It's a great way to not only create a focal point, but to add pattern, colour, and texture to a room.

    I'm anxious to check out the projects you've shared on your blog :-)
