Wallpaper Feature Wall

While I’m not a big fan of entire rooms covered in wallpaper or wallpaper boarders, there is one aspect of wallpaper that I can get on board with: Wallpaper Feature Walls.

In order to pull this off, you must be very careful about the type of wallpaper you choose for a given room, your décor choices, and your flooring.  If all of these elements don’t tie in together, your wallpaper feature wall can quickly go from chic to tacky!

So that’s what I’m here for, to help make sure your wallpaper feature wall doesn’t end up looking like a scene out of your grandmother’s musty old kitchen:)  Here’s some of my favorite wallpaper patterns and the perfect flooring to match!

Classic Grey

The thing that I love most about this wallpaper is that its super versatile.  When I see this pattern, I think classic.  I would add some vintage, antique, distressed design pieces.  But I can also picture this with some really simple, modern, pretty design pieces, as well.

Flooring to Match:


White wood to keep this room looking bright and simple!

Bohemian Chic

Hello gorgeous!  I love the bohemian style pattern here, and the turquoise and gold accent perfectly!

Flooring to Match:


Check out the color variations in this wood.  The rich color would look stunning with the gold in this wallpaper.

Complete the look by adding one of these console pieces to your feature wall.

Blue Chevron

On the “May’s Color Schemes” blog from last week, I posted a beautiful chevron patterned carpet, but hey, I’m not biased, I like chevron here and there, I like chevron everywhere!  (Yes, that was a Dr. Seuss reference, sometimes its hard to step out of mom mode! 😉  Speaking of children, I like this wallpaper as a feature wall in a playroom or kid’s lounge!  Plus, once the kids are older, this wallpaper also works for a scrapbooking/craft/hobby room!

Flooring to Match:


I would go with carpet to make this room feel warm.  The cream color matches the cream in the chevron pattern perfectly.

Designing on a budget?  Complete your room with DIY design pieces, like the arrows below, at much smaller costs than store bought prices.  Or if your scrunched for time, you can purchase this piece from Etsy for around $45.

This look isn’t for everyone, but with the right design pieces, I would definitely be willing to put this in my dining room.  In order for this look to remain pretty, and not to “child-like,” I recommend painting the rest of the walls and the ceiling white.

Flooring to Match:


This bamboo flooring is warm and inviting.  The color goes well with the nature vibe of this room.

I love the idea of keeping this room fun and unique by adding an umbrella light fixture.  This would likely only work in a room with tall ceilings, though!

Whimsical Woods

Create the perfect fairytale bedroom with this whimsical wallpaper.  It reminds me of nights spent catching fireflies.  Something about it is so enchanting!

This just depends on your personal preference, some people like carpet in their bedroom, others like hardwood.  I think I prefer the wood in this case.  Which one would you choose?

Take out the glass of an antique mirror, and use some lace to make your own DIY jewelry holder.  This vintage piece looks great with the whimsical theme!
