1. Hit the Spot

The idea of papering your walls in polka dots may sound intimidating, but just look at how this spotted wall turned out.

From black-and-white Dalmatian prints to colorfully dotted designs, this style can work with a wide range of decorative themes.

Start small by adding it to an accent wall, or use it on the backside of shelves for a pop of spots.

2. The Midas Touch

Metallics go with everything, and they can really freshen up an outdated room.

If you have a lot of antiques or an older home in general, a splash of gold or silver can take your space into modern territory.

3. More of the Same

Everyone has a preferred color palette, and printed wallpaper just means more of a good thing.

Amplify your favorite hues by complementing your decor with patterned wallpaper in a similar shade.

4. Mix and Match

Don’t be afraid to double up on your prints, too.

Complement a floral bedspread with a flowery wallpaper, or pair it with coordinating stripes instead.

Just balance the look by mixing small patterns with larger ones.

5. A Light Touch

Love the idea of printed wallpaper, but unsure of how it would look in your home?

Play it safe with a muted take on this eye-catching style. Look for prints and patterns in soft, barely there motifs for subtle contrast.

6. Gender Roles

If you’re decorating a nursery, there’s no cuter way to bring a room together than with colorful wallpaper.

Pick out your hues¬†— from traditional pinks and blues to gender-neutral combinations — and then paper your walls accordingly.

7. Island Time

A home always looks better with greenery, so embrace nature with a lush accent.

These jungle leaves make you feel like you’re on a tropical getaway without stepping foot outside your door.
