Some of you are saying, "You've got to be kidding me". You're the ones with experience removing it or watching your parents trying to hang it. Trending now is a mix of colors, texture and finishes in all rooms, not just kitchens. The trick here is to get it right; not too much but enough texture and color that enhances your space with visual interest and depth.
These opposites attract, honed stone with shimmering raffia wallpaper. Even more texture is added with grey ash shelves.
We installed the paper on the insides of cabinetry with glass doors and below them in the back splash area. By installing the paper inside and below the wall cabinets feel like they're floating and the upper cabinets don't feel too bright.
We're fortunate to have a stone fabricator that is extremely talented. Knowing that we were using wallpaper and not tile in the back splash he meticulously installed the tops tight against the sheet rock. Kudos to Jordan!
A great spot to pull breakfast together.
Soft shimmering tones make this a versatile choice for many rooms.
I like raffia papers with a bit of sheen. These tend to have tones of color, not a flat color like paint would have. The honed Calacatta marble wall and grey stained ash shelf needed more texture than a paint would provide. The wallpaper is the transitional piece that wraps around and connects the other finishes and elements in the room.
I hope I've inspired some of you to consider adding a bit more color and texture in your next project.
