Wallpaper for DR

2 months ago
last modified: 2 months ago


we are finishing up a kitchen renovarion in which we removed the wall between kirchen and DR. We have a light blue- grat backsplash. The DR has chantilly lace half wall wainscoat and crown molding. someone suggested a wallpaper for above the wall wainscoat , and I love the idea. the choices are overwhelming and made even more difficult by the huge wallpaper books in which the papers cannot be removed. I would like a textured/ grasscloth like paper in white, light gray, silver. a touch if blue mixed in is okay too, but I feel the backsplash gives plenty color, so i thought a soft color wallpaper will keep the light/ airy look I want

Does it matter if the stripes of the textured paper go vertical or horizontal?

Do you think the direction I am going in will look nice with what is in place?

here are a few that I like so far :

choice 1 - white/ light grey / metallic silver vertical textured

Choice 2

light grey vertical textured metallic (the large grey square)

Chocie 3 grey with blue horizontal textured

Choice 4 light gray and white horizontal grasscloth

The overall space - wallpaper will be in DR onky half wall above the wainscoating. It will be adjacent on the wall to the backsplash.
