What Houzz contributors are saying:
Play with proportionVertical stripes on walls and at windows can trick the eye into seeing a room as taller than it is; horizontal ones will make it seem wider. Here, the ceiling is raised – visually – with a trompe l’oeil wallpaper. The concrete-effect panelled grid pattern also regularises the room’s awkward angles – and, as a bonus, adds texture to the small space. Choose wide stripes for a contemporary feel – and neutral or receding colours over bolds.
