I’m quite taken with the idea of using wallpaper to create a charming statement panel, as seen here, using Pomp 3500 wallpaper by Brian Yates.

Completely gorgeous!! You always find the most amazingly beautiful things to share.
Thanks for such a lovely comment, Bayou Contessa!
This is so gorgeous. What an artistic use of AMAZING wallpaper. I find your blog so inspirational!
I love the wallpaper panels!
Melissa, I’m impressed! And in 1992, no less. Sounds like it turned out beautifully–you wouldn’t happen to have any photos, would you?
Jelenie–thanks so much
A very nice touch!
love your blog hon, lots of inspiration here!
I have done this before, actually, and it turned out beautifully. It was in 1992 so it was quite some time ago, but I actually cut out parts of a wallpaper border and used it to replicate the look of something handpainted. It took forever, that is probably why I haven’t done it again. But, with the right paper and right room, it can look fabulous!
Oh, a stair runner–Elegant, what an inspired idea. And perhaps my images do not do the actual statement wall justice–had they been a little less grainy, you may be swayed by the idea . . . Either way, I love the creative thinking involved.
I’d like to see it as a stair runner… can’t quiet get the hang of the statement wall… it seems like a tattoo to me, difficult to pull off. Ah well, that’s me, a bit of an old fuddy-duddy. Thanks for making me think.
Kijsa, thanks for the invitation–I’d love to stop by and wish your sister a Happy Birthday.
what I great idea!
Love this!!**Shhhh!**You are invited to a SURPRISE BLOGGY BIRTHDAY PARTY for kari this Wednesday, Feb 20. She is turning 40!!!
I would love for you to stop by the party on Wednesday to surprise (hopefully!) the birthday girl, enjoy a bite of cake, sprinkle a little of your magic birthday dust, and check out the party favor giveaway!
i love this! it’s somewhere in between those annoying decals and a whole room of wallpaper – a great option, and a lovely accent. thanks for sharing!
Brilliant idea… i may have to appropriate it. I have a place in two rooms where the fireplaces used to be…
Carolina–I keep re-reading this issue and finding new and wonderful ideas each time.
wow I really love this!
The wallpaper is stunning! What a lovely idea to use it as a panel, rather than covering the whole wall.
I was just reading this article over the weekend…so pretty.
