Pairing Living Room Wallpaper with Paint

Are you the sort who loves wallpaper so much that you'd put it absolutely everywhere if you could? We understand. However, we also know that molding, baseboards, and window sills need paint to look their best. How do you go about coordinating your favorite wallpaper with paint? Or conversely, what's the best way to select a living room wallpaper to go with your carefully chosen custom-mix paint color? There are lots of ways to go about it, and there is one crucial piece of equipment you'll need. Swatches. Acquire swatches of the paint and all the wallpapers you're looking at. Bring them into the actual room you want to use them in. This gives you an opportunity to see potential living room wallpapers with your furniture, in the natural light of the room – not under fluorescents or showroom lighting that's too darn bright.

Now that you've seen what your paint and wall coverings will actually look like in the room, consider your furniture, upholstery, and drapes, as well as the flow of your foyer and adjacent hallways. The living room is often where guests are welcomed and socializing takes place. It may also house your television, reading chair, game table, or conversation pit. No matter what tone you wish to set, combining the right wallpaper with the perfect paint will make it happen. Try using baseboard and trim paint to bring out intricate details in the wallpaper pattern. Additionally, consider painting trim so it blends in and fades shyly into background. The choice is all yours. 

What if you really want to use living room wallpaper, or need it to rescue uneven walls, but you have your heart set on paint? No problem. Textured, paintable wall coverings provide the best of both worlds. These offer subtle, touchable designs that can be painted with any color you like – and are strippable and easy to remove when the time comes. Trust in your taste and your own unique style to match paint and living room wallpaper in ways you'll love.
