Off the Wall With Little Green

Wallpaper has made a dramatic come back in the passed couple of years, after a long period of people prefering the minamilistic look of neutral paint tones, wallpaper is now back with bigger and brighter patterns. I love the fact that the minamilistic look has taken a step back to allow some creativity. Warm neutral paint tones are still hugely popular but now teamed with pops of bright loud paints or big bold wall coverings.

 Big patterned wallpaper used on feature walls like fire places or in alcoves are a bigger wow factor than back in the 60's and 70's when loud wallpaper covered every wall. It makes a statement without being over powering. Teamed with the right paint colours accent walls can look amazing. The Little Greene Paint Company have three collections of wallpaper and to make life easier for you their large sample books found at retailers team recommended paint colours with every paper.
Each page of the book will offer you suggestions to guide you.

Framing an off cut of wallpaper or using it to cover some board and hanging it on one of the plain painted walls will continue your theme and tie it all in together.
As well as using left over wallpaper for art frames you can also use it in kitchens to make memo boards.  
Another idea is to use wallpaper on the backing of a bookcase, it will add a subtle pop of pattern and make it an eyecatching and classy piece of furniture.
