Grab center stage. Natalie Younger loves wallpaper. She found her perfect client with this project: The entire house was inspired by graphic prints and bold colors. Grab center stage.

"This paper was installed as a feature wall and grounded the rest of the room's lighter tones by adding a little drama," she says. "I designed a custom velvet platform bed that was kept low to the ground in order to allow the wall to take center stage. The chandelier over the bed added to the mood, and the crystal knob details on all the furniture rounded out that glitzy glamour feel." Accent the positive. This bedroom is part of an open loft, so Valerie Pasquiou was looking to give it a bit of a cozy feel and some softness by bringing an "un‐overwhelming accent wall into the room with a hint of femininity," she says. "The overall idea was also to keep a light and crisp, fresh feel to the room." Focus on texture. "When you have a really monochromatic bed and everything feels very calm and toned down, you want something to be a focal point,” says Tineke Triggs of Artistic Designs for Living. "This wallpaper brought texture and depth to the room.” Impress your guests. Interior designer Tara Seawright uses wallpaper in a lot of her projects.
Creating an area above a large bed for childhood keepsakes, trinkets and books will make the room feel more cozy and childlike. If you're worried about a big bed taking up too much space, consider painting the wall behind the bed a nice dark color. This will give the illusion of depth and make the room appear larger. Another great trick to add the illusion of space is to use lots of mirrors. I love the brightness the two mirrors flanking this large bed bring to the room. If you have the square footage, lining the walls with multiple queen‐size beds is a great way to sleep a crowd. This room is perfect for slumber parties and late‐night pillow fights. This space looks like it was just transformed into a more mature design. The map keeps it playful, but you'll be happy to hang on to the furniture long after your child has left for college. When choosing furniture, go for timeless, clean pieces your child will be happy to keep well into adulthood. Keeping the room colorful, as with this bright pink accent wall, will prevent the space from becoming too grown‐up. This cute nautical‐themed room would be great for a growing boy. The materials and patterns feel youthful but classic, so it works as an instant guest room when necessary.
This gray and pink room is perfect for a sweet little baby girl. But switch out that crib and add some toy storage, and it's also perfect for a growing girl. The books and knickknacks on the shelf will change, but the bright colors, multipurpose furniture and neutral walls and floors can grow and morph until college. A black wall makes for a very sophisticated nursery (with lot of opportunity for bright pops of color). Use chalkboard paint and this becomes the perfect graffiti wall for ages 2 to 18. Another black accent wall in a nursery. With the classic Eames rocker and the simple, neutral decor, this baby room could could last through college. Bright walls and fun patterns make sense for a long time. The black and white ceiling stripes stimulate an infant's brain, and they still make sense for a teenager who wants to turn the room into a punk rock palace. More classic furniture combined with bright color. The Frames wallpaper by Taylor & Wood transforms the wall into an interactive, constantly changing canvas.
