Decorating with wallpaper borders


Wallpaper borders are not for kids’ rooms anymore. They bring character, color and detail to a room, lifting it to a refined level of style that reflects your personality and flare. No wonder they are gaining popularity amongst decorators and stylists! For some, using borders can seem quite complicated, but with a few design ideas and decorating tips, wallpaper borders can become your best decorating asset

Decorating with wallpaper borders

A wallpaper border can add character to a plain room. We’ve gathered a few design ideas that may spark your imagination. From a more general perspective, a wallpaper border can serve as a trim: use multiple borders, for example a print or novelty and a decorative architectural trim border. Wallpaper borders can also be used to create visual illusions. Use them to your advantage: a wallpaper border on a ceiling will reduce the size of the ceiling and reduce height of the room, while using it to create a chair rail – about 33” above the floor, will give structure to your room.

For children:
• Children’s wallpaper borders can tell a story. Use them to feature their hobbies, favorite characters or landscapes.
• A wallpaper border can feature your child’s favorite Disney character. Make it a theme and add a few other decorative
   elements featuring his or her hero.

In the kitchen:
• A wallpaper border inspired by botanical etchings adds a delicate quality to a country style kitchen.
• Use a border to trim a cupboard, doorway or closet.

Different styles:
• Pair a large feature border with coordinating wallpaper.
• Capture the spirit of an époque – choose accessories that echo the time period of your border design.
• To coordinate your room, use fabrics with colors similar to those in the border.
• Bring ethnic chic to your wall with a globally inspired wallpaper border.
• An elegant wallpaper border design developed from a historical pattern sets apart a formal room by adding a touch of class.
• Add the finishing touch to a formal room with a celebratory wallpaper border.
