Like fashion, interior décor often recycles older ideas and styles from the past.  Back in the 1970s, a prominent interior design technique was the use of wood paneling on interior walls.  While it was a trendy look, it was difficult to install and maintain.

Instead of reverted back to the wood panels to achieve this natural wood look, why not make use of the wallpaper?  Modern wallpapers have come a long way, and they can mimic nearly any type of wood imaginable.  At Paper Doll Interiors, we have a multitude of wallpapers that can meet whatever natural wood appearance you are seeking.  Hear a few ideas about different style wallpapers that emulate wood.

Beadboard Wallpaper

This style of wallpaper utilizes clean lines and is typically lightly colored.  Often homeowners and decorators use beadboard wallpaper for bookcases, built-in shelving, or bathrooms.  Overall the design produces an organized feel with a cottage style appearance.

Paper Doll Insider’s Tip: If you like nautical décor coupled with the coastal style, beaded wallpaper may be a perfect fit for some of your rooms.  Beaded, Stressed wood, and Driftwood wallpaper work best for this style.

Firewood Wallpaper

There is nothing like the outdoor look of a cabin tucked away in the woodlands.  You can bring this aura to a room with firewood wallpaper.  These prints make for a cozy, warm feel, particularly if you a nearby fireplace.

Paper Doll Insider’s Tip: This wallpaper works exceptionally well with rich reds, browns, and orange (traditionally fall colors).  Try coupling this wallpaper with warm colored rugs, couch throws, and pillows to complete the look.

One of the best features of wood mimicking wallpaper is its price.  For a fraction of the cost, you can achieve the same look like natural wood without the installation hassles.  Would you like more advice about faux wood wallpapers?  Come visit our store at your earliest convenience.  We have dozen upon dozen of other styles as well as customizable wallpaper capabilities.
