We Know You Love Patterned Wallpaper, So This Is How to Style It

Patterned wallpaper has been everywhere lately, and this stunning bedroom by Sonder, as shown by interior designer Christina Higham, demonstrates why we all can't get enough. For starters, this black-and-white scheme simply says what all modern iterations of this decor choice seem to be saying: wallpaper isn't as dowdy as you remember. Its confident geometrics are beautifully balanced by the soft shades of the headboard and bedspread, while the brushed metallic lamp does its part to give the look a rich, layered feel. Meanwhile, a subdued bedside table is a clever mix of function and fashion, and its peachy finish is an unexpected complement to the pale pink covers. Most of the furnishings let the wallpaper shine — after all, if everything in the room were as loud as that pick, it would be an overwhelming resting place. But it's important that the floor-to-ceiling doesn't stand entirely on its own, and that's why we're loving the way these two velvet throw pillows add even more dimension to the aesthetic with their inviting texture and ultra-luxe sheen. It's such a low-maintenance way to make a killer style statement.

Add some texture to your own boudoir with these velvet throws.
