Are you running out of inspiration? Do you wish to make a radical or maybe, a slight change to your living room? Then, these wallpaper ideas can help you transform your living space and create the style and the atmosphere that best suits your personality.
DRAMATIC CHEVRON WALLPAPER
A palette of blues fills this Park Avenue living room designed by Kelly Behun. The bold chevron wallpaper by Schumacher complements the graphic carpet from Marrakech. A custom sectional covered in Pindler linen, a cocktail table by Nada Debs, a striped chair by Kelly Behun Studio, and a vintage tubular chair by Joe Colombo for Flexform complete the look.
MODERN BOTANICAL-INSPIRED WALLPAPER
A whimsical wallpaper steals the show in this Ken Fulk design, which also includes armchairs upholstered in a Jab Anstoetz velvet, J. & J. Kohn dining chairs, an antique Adolf Loos cocktail table, and carpet by Stark. Over the original 1930s mantel is a photograph by William Eggleston.
BLACK AND WHITE BOTANICAL WALLPAPER
A black and white botanical wallpaper by House of Hackney elevates CeCe Colhoun’s New Orleans manse. The Cassina chaise longue is from Design Within Reach and the Louis Vuitton trunk is vintage.
TEXTURED GREY WALLPAPER
A palette of greys can be full of visual interest, as shown in this living room design by Thom Filicia. The grey textured wallpaper serves as the perfect backdrop for a rectangular mirror and black faux leather crocodile screen.
DAINTY FLORAL WALLPAPER
Sometimes, a simple floral wall covering is all that’s needed to pull a living room together. The neutral design in this Paris space is beautifully layered with pops of red and blue.
Emily Henderson knows the key to incorporating a bold pattern in a living room design. This spacious living room features a bold green palm leaf wallpaper that adds contrast to the white Chesterfield-style sofa.
Designer to the stars Martyn Lawrence Bullard crafted a gorgeous Malibu home inspired by Bali. For the living room, Lawrence Bullard settled on a Kneedler Fauchère paper painted by Kelly Holden. The exotic design scheme also features seating by Bullard, an Indian cocktail table, and a mirror that is framed by an Indonesian door. A fireplace with 18th-century Indian marble columns creates additional interest.
CHARMING FLORAL WALLPAPER
A floral wallpaper by Knowles & Christou makes a statement in an Ann Pyne-designed Manhattan living room. White accents, including circa-1972 closet doors, Chinese-style chairs, and a marble table from R.E. Steele Antiques, enhance the design scheme. A chandelier, in the style of Diego Giacometti, serves as a conversation-starter.
GRAPHIC BLUE WALLPAPER
Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing was tapped to design a model apartment for the luxurious Hudson Yards building. He opted for a graphic blue wallpaper for the personality-packed living space.
