Black and white damask wallpaper

Using damask wallpaper in your home

Damask is a very bold pattern. When used in contrasting colours such as black and white it can really make a statement in your home.

Like with any home interior design you have to balance all of your elements. Having a damask wallpaper with damask curtains and damask print wall hangings will probably overwhelm a room. So the trick is to use damask in a way that it adds a focal point without overshadowing other elements or being too much for a room.

Damask wallpaper is not for the fainthearted – depending on the colours you use it can add drama, romance, sophistication and a WOW factor.

Damask wallpapers often work best when used only on a feature wall and they will need a room that can handle such a bold pattern. The more dark patterns are probably not best for smaller rooms unless you are trying to create a very intimate space.

Top Tips For Using Damask Wallpaper
