When you go to visit a friend’s house, have you ever wondered, what is the motivation that made them place decorative objects in a particular way, or why they chose a certain type of painting or sculpture?

The relationship and link between people and objects are conceived according to the domestic spaces they inhabit. The use of plants, paintings, or any other type of figures and their placement in space can be analyzed from the museography of the domestic space and from the symbolism that people create in a space they feel as their own. In many cases, it is associated with feelings that evoke security, comfort, and confidence.

That is why today we bring some recommendations on how to combine wallpaper designs with other elements of decor, to help in shape such spaces themselves.

When thinking about combining wallpaper with other elements, we must consider the harmony of colors, patterns, and textures. Although wallpaper is an excellent option to give a touch of personality to any room, for the result to be harmonious, it is important to combine the wallpaper with other suitable decorative elements.

Creating a focal wall by combining patterns is one of the most common ways of highlighting specific locations. You can accomplish this by using a paper pattern that has an eye-catching design and then selecting the rest of the decor with the colors and tones of that paper. In this case, it is important to be cautious of overpatterning and to make sure that the combined patterns do not conflict.

Also, the paper can be combined with other textures such as wood, ceramic, or metal to add dimension and depth to the room. An exposed brick wall or rustic wood table can provide contrast to a subtly patterned wallpaper.

Regarding colors, to achieve a perfect color combination, it is important to take into account the color of the wallpaper and also to be clear about how it will be combined with the rest of the room. If the wallpaper has a dominant color, it is necessary to select accessories and other decorative elements in the same color palette to achieve a more harmonious result.

On the other hand, although wallpaper is commonly associated with traditional styles, it can be used to give a modern touch to a room by combining different styles. For example, a wall with an abstract pattern can be combined with furniture with simple, minimalist lines to achieve a contemporary style.

Wallpaper can also be used to add a luxurious feel to a room. One way to achieve this is by combining wallpaper with materials such as silk, velvet and leather. This creates an elegant and sophisticated feel to the room.

Meanwhile, geometric shapes in wallpaper can be complemented with other decorative elements that have similar shapes. For example, a wall with a diamond pattern can be coordinated with a carpet with the same shape for a more harmonious look.

Factors such as lighting are determining factors in decorating any room. If you have wallpaper with an eye-catching pattern, use lighting to highlight the wall. Add light fixtures on the wall to create a sense of drama and sophistication.

Finally, to achieve a cohesive look, it is important that the accessories and decorative elements of the room are in tune with each other. For example, you can coordinate cushions, curtains, lamps and other details with the pattern and colors of the wallpaper.

From our side, the RG WALLCOVERING team emphasizes that the most important thing when selecting a type of decoration is the comfort of feeling yourself. There are as many decoration options as there are people in the world and that's why the most important thing is that when decorating, you can capture your personal brand in the spaces.
