Wallpaper has made a huge comeback recently. With new trends and styles, the look has far surpassed the country kitchens of yesteryear and is now one of the most sought after design elements on the market.

2. Focus Point: Choose one larger piece to build the rest of your wall around. This will help to both ground your design as well as make positioning each additional print a whole lot easier.

3. Use Creativity: Be creative with the layout. Snap pics of different designs to help you choose your favorite look!

4. Add Variety: Don’t stick to just one type of medium; rather use a collection of art, photos, prints and souvenirs. The more you mix, the more of an eclectic feel you will get.

5. Framework: It’s all in the framework! For a more collected look, use frames in the same color and style. If you would like a more “salon” feel, use different finishes such as a combination of metals and wood.
