5 Ways With Borders

They're back

Want to refresh your interiors without completely redecorating? We have a border for that!

No longer the reserve for Grandma's '90s living room, our contemporary take on the classic border is the perfect (and affordable) way to update tired decor. 

Whether you are a maximalist maven or low-key lover, the beauty of the border is that it can work in every home; read on to discover 5 ways you can.

It's All in the (Architectural) Detail

Complement (or create) architectural detail by running a wallpaper border around the top of the wall, where it meets the ceiling, highlighting or mimicking decorative cornicing. This is a great way to add height to a room as it will draw the eye up. You can also go onto the ceiling where coving would traditionally be, creating the illusion of a vaulted ceiling. Why not use a border to create dado or picture rails, or along the skirting board? The perfect understated statement.

You've Been Framed

Adorn a humble door frame by framing it in a border. This small change will have a big impact on your space. You can also use it to add interest to an outdated mirror, an unloved curtain pelmet or to frame a headboard, bringing a touch of colour and print into the interior.

Panel Show

Panelling has been a big trend for the last few years; why not add an extra layer of decorative detail with bordered panels? Transform your home into your dream scheme with minimal effort by outlining the desired shape on the wall and then pasting on your panelling. For an expert touch, be sure to mitre the corners by folding the paper to create right angles and matching up the straight edges. Simply trim off the excess for perfect points, et voila!

Stairway to Heaven

Create your very own stairway to heaven by using strips of border on the stair treads; this is a great way to add a bit of colour and print into pattern-shy interiors. Another way to introduce decorative detail is to use a border along the bannister.

The Perfect Pairings

Be bold with borders and use them to complement your chosen wallpaper print or make a statement and clash with a contrasting pattern. To introduce a touch of print into your scheme without the commitment of full wallpaper, borders are the way to go! Create a feature using a border in a different hue to your wall colour or go tonal and match to the shade of your paint for a subtle pop of pattern.
