1. Pay attention to the existing Style of the space and the type of Space you are wallpapering


Identify and understand the space you are working with. In an active space bold bright colours are appropriate while in a space for rest can be achieved with soft calm hues. Also account for the style of your home and your personal style whether it be contemporary, traditional, or transitional you will be able to significantly narrow down your options and make a focused selection.

2. Use Colour to Create Mood


Colour has a strong psychological effect and plays a large role in defining the mood and ambience of any space. Dark colours make a space intimate and cozy while adding a luxurious, rich feel. Light colours are soothing and can make a space appear more open. When selecting colours don’t forget what else is in the space and make sure to draw colours into your space from your wallpaper or vice versa to create cohesion. Don’t forget to take lighting into account as well and test out samples in your space as colours appear very different under various light sources.

3. Pattern



Look at the scale of your space to decide whether a large or small pattern is appropriate. A striped pattern can elongate a space if applied horizontally or can add the illusion of height if applied vertically.
