This type of wallpaper looks very interesting and expensive in the interior. Most organically textile fabrics fit into the classic interior of the bedroom.

Natural materials are ideal for decorating the bedroom, creating a cozy, warm interior. Perfect for decorating the accent wall - they look original and interesting.
Very often, the combined wallpaper is used in the design of the bedroom for the decoration of the accent wall (as in the photo). For its decoration can be used canvas of a contrasting color, or wallpaper, which differs from the main walls by its texture or pattern. The wall behind the headboard is chosen as the accent. It can be decorated with wallpaper with bright, saturated colors, and the remaining walls - neutral.
With vertical combination, you can use the canvas of the same color of different saturation or contrasting shades. Monochrome stripes can be alternated with canvases decorated with various patterns, or you can combine different types of patterns. The bands can be of different widths depending on the design and tasks. This method of decoration is well suited for a bedroom with a low ceiling, allowing you to visually increase the height of the room.

At the same time they should be made in the same color palette, but, possibly, of different saturation. Below - darker, above - light. If you combine two types of wallpaper with a pattern, cloth with a small pattern should be placed on the top of the walls, and with a larger pattern - on the bottom. Joints are decorated with moldings or borders. For typical rooms it is necessary to observe the following proportions - the lower part occupies one third of the wall, and the upper one - two thirds.
Making niches and wallpaper inserts
Very often, when decorating a bedroom, decorating walls with wallpaper panels is used. The shape and size of them can be any. Framed inserts with moldings or slats of various shapes and thicknesses. The insert behind the bed should match the width of the headboard or be slightly wider. The inserts decorated with moldings look very nice in the bedroom with a classic design and Provence style. In this case, monochromatic canvases can be used for the main area of the walls, and for inserts, choose wallpaper with a striking ornament or pattern.
If there are niches in the room, they can also be covered with wallpaper of a contrasting or any other shade. You can also use paintings made in the overall tonality of the room, but with a pattern or pattern.

When choosing a picture worth paying attention to the style of the room. For classic interiors, traditional patterns, beautiful patterns, stripes of various widths are suitable. In the Provence style bedroom, it is better to choose plain wallpaper of light shades and combine them with small flower canvases. For large rooms in the style of minimalism well-suited wallpaper with a large pattern - flowers, ornaments, abstract shapes or stripes.
If you plan to combine the wallpaper in the bedroom, even before the start of the repair you need to carefully plan the placement of furniture and its color.
