5 Places to Feature Novelty Wallpaper in Your Home

5 Places to Feature Novelty Wallpaper in Your Home

Novelty wallpaper embodies the word “novelty” according to its truest definition. It’s innovative, unexpected, and new. Novelty wallpaper can appeal to people who want to make a bold statement, but it can also seamlessly match a stylish room with complementary patterns and colors. If you’re interested in breaking the mold and creating one-of-a-kind walls in your home, here are a few places where you can incorporate novelty wallpaper.

  1. The Entryway: A touch of novelty wallpaper can go a long way, especially when the design is eclectic and collage-inspired. Make your entryway street-chic and modern with newspaper wallpaper.
  2. The Bathroom: Bathroom walls, especially those in guest bathrooms and powder rooms, make perfect blank canvases for novelty wallpaper. Smaller bathrooms can make a greater impact with bright and engaging wallpapers, like this flirtatious lips wallpaper framing an equally bold red mirror or this strikingly seductive pop art wallpaper in an all black-and-white modern-meets-vintage bathroom. At the same time, subtler wallpapers, like vintage newspaper, can add interest without distracting from unique bathroom fixtures, like a baby blue vessel sink and vintage mirror.

  4. The Arts and Crafts Room: If you’ve devoted a space in your home to arts and crafts, music, or creation of any sort, novelty wallpaper can help keep your creative juices flowing. This black and white sketchy villages wallpaper brings to mind the same complexity and playfulness required of jazz musicians and creates a great contrast against a bright blue piano. This womenswear wallpaper is ideal for the fashion designer at her desk, while Matisse-like cut-outs match the modern painter.

  6. The Artist’s Bedroom: If you live the artist’s life, why not make your bedroom walls a statement, too? Novelty wallpaper with small, playful sketches is intriguing and tells a story close up, but it fades into the background with the rest of the room from afar. Wallpaper with dancing framed images needs no adornment – it is a work of modern art in itself!
  7. The Home Office or Home Library: One exciting aspect of novelty wallpaper is how well it can match a specific fascination, like a collection or career focus. Stamped wallpaper can match a vintage-meets-modern aesthetic. Like a cubist painting, close-up the stamps reveal an image, while far away, they create a uniformly black and white wall to match the room’s decor. This biology-themed wallpaper is ideal for the botanist’s bedroom. Architects and designers can be inspired by chalkboard sketch wallpaper right in front of the desk.
