It’s not necessary to paper all walls in a room. One wall behind a bed, a fireplace wall in a library, a single wall in a bathroom are all great places to experiment with wallpaper. Nor is paper limited to walls. Ceilings or kitchen islands are perfect candidates for special treatment.
The beveled 2x4 bisque tile and soft graphic paper below will be transforming a guest bath. The tile will be applied as wainscoting; the paper will cover the remaining wall and ceiling. Very soft and monochromatic. The home owner can bring any color in to accessorize, and even change colors according to season or mood.
