Inspiration is an important factor in interior design. Some designers look to a favorite outfit or painting as inspiration. Other designers take inspiration from a region or locale. Finding your inspiration is important in the creations of a successful and cohesive design. Inspiration doesn't need to be so complicated. It can be as simple as choosing a color scheme or preexisting design style.
An excellent starting point when creating an interior design is the choice of black and white wallpaper. Using this excellent color scheme for the walls will ensure that the design decisions you make in regards to furniture, art, and accessories will not rely on a specific color. In addition, these colors go with everything. Where your design goes after choosing the wallpaper is completely up to you.
Choosing a traditional pattern of wallpaper may lead to a traditional design. Or perhaps the traditional wallpaper becomes a soothing backdrop to a more modern design. If the furniture of the room is preexisting the choice of wallpaper can change how the decor relates together. A room that was previously highly traditional can become retro chic with the additional of unconventional wallpaper and furniture covers.
A new design style begins with the background. Having a pattern created with black and white will break up a room that is filled with solid colors or a monochromatic scheme. Have fun with pattern on the walls can be done in ways that wouldn't work on a specific piece of furniture. You can have your furniture blend into the wallpaper by sticking to black and white pieces. Or your furniture can stand out away from the wall with the use of color.
While this color of wallpaper is seen as elegant and sophisticated that does not mean it must follow traditional rules. An intriguing geometric labyrinth design is an excellent wallpaper to use in contemporary design. Use the wallpaper on a single wall and then repeat the pattern with similar fabrics on accent pillows. Bring the wallpaper off of the wall and use it in niches that are usually forgotten like the inside frames as art.
