There was once a time when wallpaper was considered dated or “grandma-style,” but those days are long gone. In the realm of interior design — across all styles, from modern to traditional and everywhere in between — there’s been a resurgence in the popularity and usage of wallpaper. And boy, does it make an impact.
When interior designer Louisa Lam with 27 Diamonds Interior Design firm set out to create an elegant and chic space for her clients’ master suite, she leaned heavily on the influence of wallpaper to lend an elegant look to the space.
“The wallpaper really pushes the design to another level, it makes it one of those rooms that everyone dreams of,” Lam said. “Wallpaper really offers a ‘wow’ factor to any room and makes it unique.”
The wallpaper is both bold in pattern but soothing in tones, adding structure and interest to the master suite while simultaneously casting a calming effect throughout. It also helps to set the room’s color palette.
“The home had just been purchased by my clients so the previous style was very different to what they wanted,” Lam said. “The walls were more of a yellow/beige color and the furniture was a lot heavier in look and style. What we made into a seating area was also used more as a TV viewing/office area.”
In pairing the wallpaper with “Functional Gray” paint by Sherwin-Williams on the other walls, a cohesive look is achieved while also drawing the eye throughout the space, giving it an expansive feel.
“My favorite part of the design is the play on tones and pattern,” Lam noted. “In this particular design, I layered different tones of gray to give the room depth. I also used a number of different patterns to provide interest and movement.”

-Hardwood flooring in a deep walnut grounds the room; lighting by Quoizel adds sophisticated sparkle.
-A grand bed frame with an architectural canopy adds structure to the space. Its area rug introduces a new graphic pattern, but since it echos the wallpaper’s color scheme, the room doesn’t look too busy.
-Metallic accents on the nightstands and a trio of mirrors bring out the chic elegance Lam’s clients wanted. “I always need to know what the client is looking for in the aspect of overall look and feel,” she said. “When the client told me that they wanted something contemporary and elegant I decided to push the master bedroom into a more romantic color scheme with texture and pattern to give a luxurious feel.”
