We have been binge watching The Americans (so good!). If you have not yet tuned in, it is about two KGB spies posing as Americans and living in Washington D.C. after Ronald Reagan is elected president. But what really is grabbing my attention is the wallpaper in the scenes. From the daughter’s room to the kitchen it just all seems so 80’s yet I am just loving it.
This has us thinking of wallpaper and original art…can they go together? We feel the answer to this question is YES! The combination of original art paired with wallpaper can be bold and yet also very personal. Hold the hammer though! There is a lot more thought that needs to go into placement when you have a piece of art to hang on wallpaper (it is much easier to cover up a hole in a wall versus a hole in the wallpaper – just ask us, we’ve learned the hard way). All in all, we feel that depending on the style, wallpaper can create a lovely base to pair with original art.
Have you hung any of your Well + Wonder paintings on your wallpaper, please share with us! We’d love to see how it turned out!
