Off the Wall: The Expanded Field of Wallpaper

I’m a big fan of wallpapered accent walls and wallpapered headboards. Even more, I like it when the two are used together. Look at how much depth and visual interest is gained by applying the same wallpaper to a two-dimensional surface and a three-dimensional object.
Miranda and Greg Stratford decided to wallpaper their headboard as an afterthought. When their dark brown wood bed frame clashed with their newly selected black and white wallpaper from Graham & Brown, the couple thought it would be better to transform their existing furniture instead of purchase a new bed.

Total material cost: less than $250. At this price, the Stratford’s will be able to change the look of their bedroom every year.
