The Forest Before the Trees

There is so much depth depicted in this wallcovering, it feels like you can reach back behind the tree to see who’s hiding there.

Orange Leaf Wallpaper

These leaf motifs mimic foliage from common American trees; a great way to add a touch of nature in a bold modern way.

Trees and Bird Hooks

This fantasyland forest also serves a purpose as well as looking beautiful. Branches extending off the wall serve as hooks for clothes and a place for toy birds to perch.

Powder Room Aviary

Though designer Sarah Richardson prefers to use neutral hues in most spaces, a tiny powder room is the ideal spot to go bold. Here, she combined woodland bird wallpaper with over-scaled French lighting and an abalone mirror to create a fun, eclectic space.

Modern Monochromatic

Going bold without color is possible. This tiny bathroom uses black-and-white, twig-patterned wallpaper and very cool modern lighting to make a classy, yet funky statement.

Chic Timber

For a home that's set amongst trees, the designer's vision for this teen girl's bedroom was to mimic the surroundings; the yellow trim details were a subtle suggestion of peeking out a window into a forest. The monotone color palette helped keep the space simple and chic.

Metallic Beauty

This powder room moves into unforgettable territory thanks to the gorgeous silver and gold tree wallpaper. The floating sink and white marble vanity countertop echoes its quiet elegance.

Add Depth to Fool the Eye

Here’s another example of a small powder room going bold with a monochromatic color scheme. Large patterned wallpaper with visual depth – woodland or not – helps make the tiny room seem bigger, and it’s certainly more interesting than a single color.
