This huge master bedroom space was an enormous, somewhat overwhelming space, so designers decided to bring textured wallpaper to the half wall behind the bed. They then painted the rest of the walls a similar, dark color to create a more intimate and inviting space. To divide the room, a separate seating area in front of the bed creates an additional relaxing space for the homeowners in their master suite.
Designers created a stand-out space in the entry with an architectural inset and unique wallpaper that elegantly and subtly contrasts with the rest of the home's white-washed walls. The inset provided the perfect space for a thin desk, giving additional function to the extra square footage. Finally, a gilt, starburst mirror gives the area a little more texture and interest, while a red rug adds a splash of color.

Tricks of the Trade:
1. How to Balance a Bold Pattern: Make sure your colors have a weight to it that can hold up to the bold pattern. Designer Karen Wolf used bright mid tones to balance the whales and also showcase them.
2. Pattern Mixes: The dense wallpaper was mixed with a small window treatment print and open graphic with white field on the floor.
