With superb projects and more than 200 color photos, this stunning showcase presents the best contemporary wallpaper designs. The rich variety of patterns ranges from modern geometrics to feminine florals, from reflective metallics to designs that imitate stucco and wood. Better yet are the clever ideas for using the papers, including applying them in vertical strips, creating a patchwork pattern, and covering just half a wall. Or, for something different, use paper other than conventional manufactured wallpaper, such as old maps and sheet music. And remember: wallpaper isn't just for walls, so there are suggestions for transforming small accessories too. Even the most intimidated will find the instructions easy enough to follow.
