This Swedish Gustavian interior from Huset shows how marvelous a striped painted wall can transform a room from an ordinary room to an interior with a distinct Scandinavian flavor.
Instead of hanging wallpaper borders at the edge of the ceiling, why not re-invent this look by hanging them vertical instead of horizontal? Border prints could be combined with other raised paint-able wallpapers to create a unique period style look.
Brewster sells this wonderful paint-able Octagonal Floral Print which could be combined with a border wallpaper to create rectangular grids on your wall. This border pattern from Borders to Go is the perfect pattern to feature vertical. Create rectangular spaces using wallpaper, or paint to frame in your most precious wall ornaments. Frame in that wonderful gold Swedish clock or a set of family photos. Customize your walls using tape, paint-able wallpaper, or just ordinary paint.
