Are you ready for today's lesson ?
Let's get started .
How to start what do I need ?
Evaluate your space .
There is an infinite variety of wallpaper .
I know it can be confusing to choose the right one for your room .
Something essential is that you like the design of the wallpaper .
Well , I would say that you should love it because it will be the focal point of the room and you will see its design every day .
If it doesn't have a motif or colors you love , you might get tired of it easily .
However , apart from choosing a wallpaper that you like , you should consider the conditions of the room .
Mainly it hide size and natural light .
As in all interior design , you need to evaluate your room first .
If the room you plan to decorate is small , you should opt for designs with light to that are not too saturated with images or complex patterns for tiny spaces , it's not advisable to place the wallpaper on all the walls .
For the best result , place your wallpaper with the greatest visual attention is focused .
Something important to consider is the scale and proportion between the wallpaper and the space .
In a small spaces .
The pattern must be small to create an illusion that the wall is receding .
There is no specific rule .
It's a matter of perception , just use your criteria taking into account how the pattern will relate to your space .
On the other hand , in large spaces , you can use wallpaper with a more daring design with patterns on a larger scale and you can even use it on several walls .
However , remember that the eye needs some solid color surfaces to rest .
Wallpaper is useful to emphasize a wall before choosing that wall , make sure it is an important one for the room .
Pick a visible wall that draws your attention from different points or serve as a backdrop to important areas or furniture such as the TV unit , the back wall of your dining room or behind the headboard .
We have already seen this in a video on creating focal points in each space of a home .

The choice is very similar to that made when speaking of traditional painting light to will give the space a feeling of spaciousness while helping to keep the room illuminated with less artificial or natural light in interior design , you always have to think of everything as a whole , think of a concept and stick to it .
For instance , if we design a room with a minimalist style art deco motif is probably not the best option unless it respects the color palette .
And if you're looking to make styles , we could consider it still .
If neither the style nor the colors goes with the aesthetic of your room , as much as you like the wallpaper , it will be best to see another option that adheres to your decoration plan .
You should select wallpaper with colors that complement your decor and the existing color palette in your home .
It doesn't necessarily have to be an identical color .
You can use a shade within the same color family , analogous or complementary colors .
The important thing is to make sure that the colors of the wallpaper coexist with the existing decoration and are combined correctly thinking about how the colors relate to each other following the color field .
By the way , I have a free guide on how to combine colors like aro guys using the color wheel and color theory is very easy .
