“I like to think of wallpaper as another form of art. I often integrate wild, vibrant patterns in smaller spaces such as powder rooms and bedrooms and push for it on recessed ceilings, multi-story walls and shelf backs.”

—Ann Gottlieb, IIDA, LEED AP ID+C, Ann Gottlieb Design


“Wallpaper is a commitment. It should complement the existing décor and match the personality of the space. Small patterns fit smaller spaces and large patterns can make a big room cozy. One wallpapered accent wall will add interest when covering a whole room is too much.”

—Jamie Merida, Jamie Merida Interiors


“I am drawn to metallic wallpapers that make a luxe, artistic statement or create a focal point on one or two walls. Wallpaper also has the added benefit of concealing wall imperfections, which is great in older homes.”

—Dennese Guadeloupe Rojas, Interiors by Design


“Wallpaper gives depth without taking up space. We like to add it behind built-ins, on the ceiling or even framed as art. We’re seeing a lot of murals, with companies offering mural panels as an affordable way to get the impact of a custom, hand-painted mural.”

—Melanie Whittington, Whittington Design Studio


“Paint cannot achieve the subtle variation and bold appeal created by wallpaper. I don’t believe there are any hard and fast rules; we base our selections on the feeling we want to convey in a space.”

—Samantha Sopp-Wittwer, Interior concepts, Inc.

Menu highlights include Strawberry Shortcake; Citrus Meringue Tart and Cherry, an assemblage of cherry compote, kirsch mousse and devil’s food cake cloaked in a deep-red glaze. Other temptations run the gamut from hazelnut-banana and berries-and-cream crêpes to ham-and-Gruyère and spinach-and-mushroom galettes. 5a Goldsborough Street; pbordier.com
