Nature-inspired wallpaper can be used in any room of the home, and it is often paired with classic white or bold colors. In shared living spaces, such as a family room, the wallpaper can create an accent wall in an otherwise neutral space.
Cotton or paper wallpaper, rather than vinyl, should be used in rooms with little humidity. In areas with too much humidity, the wallpaper may peel after a short time. Vinyl birch bark wallpaper is more durable, and it can be used in bathrooms and kitchens in most homes. The rooms most commonly designed with nature-inspired decor include bedrooms and living rooms. When using patterned wallpaper to complete an accent wall, paint the remainder of the room in a solid color and opt for solid color furnishings to complete the theme of the room.
Birch bark wallpaper works well in any room that features a combination of white and metallic colors, such as polished silver. For instance, birch bark wallpaper that is paired with large mirror provides a metallic appearance to a room with a basic white theme. White also increases the appearance of spaciousness in a small room.
Birch bark wallpaper is typically considered neutral in color, but the pattern adds texture and warmth to living spaces. Use the wallpaper in larger spaces to increase the intimacy and coziness of the space. To add color to the space, add throw pillows, vases or other detail items that contrast with the gray birch bark.
