5 times this designer chose wallpaper—and why we're glad she did
Sometimes wallpaper can take some convincing. Amy Kartheiser, principal of Chicago design firm Amy Kartheiser Design and founder of the nonprofit Under The Same Sky, knows firsthand. The interior designer shares 5 examples of her clients' rooms that have been transformed by the power of paper!
"During the beginning stages of a project, we always discuss with clients what they envision for the space and if either paint or wallpaper helps to bring that vision to life," explains Amy.
"While we definitely have clients that love and embrace wallpaper, others are a bit more hesitant or only want to use it sparingly. For those clients, we take the time to discuss the right places for it, like a powder room or entryway. Less can most definitely be more!"
Not sure where to start? Think about the mood you'd like to embrace. "I think it’s important for clients to consider the mood they want to encourage in a space. For example, if they want a bedroom to feel soothing, calm, and peaceful, then we would work together to find colors that help to create that atmosphere," says Amy.
"On the other hand, clients might want to feel energized or confident when working from home, so we would direct them towards a color palette that suits an office or library."
