Guest bedrooms can often look rather soulless, or just end up as a dumping ground. Thank goodness, mine’s not the latter!

I’ve always read that wallpaper is a great way to add character and personality to a room. They say bold patterns and interesting finishes work well for creating great feature walls, which really help to liven up small or dull spaces. I had no idea what an impact wallpaper could make on my guest bedroom until just a few weeks ago.

My daughter, Peyton, helped decorate our upstairs guest bedroom. Peyton chose to use a custom brocade wallpaper by Farrow & Ball (my favorite paint company in the world). The added touch of this wallpaper has made a huge impact on the room. Our upstairs guest bedroom not only feels larger, it’s a peaceful sanctuary.
