How to decorate with botanical wallpaper for the first time
Redecorating our homes is kind of a new beginning. At first, it might be scary, but once you get started, you’ll see how adding botanical elements to your decoration can be a wise move.
If you want to be on the safe side, keep the harmony of your space with neutral colors. After all, who said botanical wallpaper has to be green? Give the vintage trend a try: choose a grey or beige, detailed floral wallpaper, and complement your style with some houseplants and pastel-toned furniture.
On the other hand, you can also stick to one color (for the most part). Decorating the room with different shades of the same color is also a great way to add personality to your home.
If you’re still wondering if a botanical wallpaper is for you, try to use it in small, more private spaces. For instance:
- The powder room. Welcome your guests by using a combination of tiles and a leaf-patterned wallpaper, additionally to some greenery. When it comes to first impressions, this room can make you shine.
- The closet. If you have the fortune to have a room for your clothes, you should definitely hang some fashionable wall art to enhance your botanical wallpaper.
- The linen closet. This room, usually small, is kind of intimate and it can be an adorable spot if you keep it organized.
