Style Guide: Dress Up Bedroom Walls
Whether you draw your inspiration from a specific favorite color or a distinctive textile, your bedroom walls are a great opportunity to establish the look of your space.
For a restful space, choose muted, calming paint colors. To reduce the pollutants in your bedroom, use a low-VOC (volatile organic compound) product.
Create large-scale, custom designs using paint and painter’s tape.
Grasscloth is a woven wallpaper that can be purchased in many colors and patterns. Its textured surface adds warmth to a room.
If you have more time than cash to contribute to a project, try painting one wall of the bedroom with a stencil for the look of patterned wallpaper at a fraction of the cost.
Trim out a section of wallpaper with molding as an accent.
Fabric Wall Treatment
The natural look of stained wood is warm and cozy on bedroom walls.
Apply wood molding to flat walls to create pattern or highlight a specific area. This is also a great way to define areas for a color change.
