Printed Wallpaper Solves the Style Dilemma of a Slanted Ceiling

A post shared by Hunker (@hunkerhome) on

When you were a kid, it probably didn't take more than a few items for you to create an imaginative story — just think of all you did with colored crayons. The same can be said about this cheerful child's room designed by Hawkes Landing: it has all of the elements of a perfectly kid-friendly yet incredibly stylish space, using just a handful of items. The biggest takeaway here is the importance of symmetry. A textural area rug in a cool blue hue infuses the look with peaceful energy, and the shade appears to match those in the wallpaper overhead. Then, a mix of matching sherbet-colored throw pillows on the gray-and-white twin beds unexpectedly complement those dark shades with a friendly finish, as the mirrored black-and-white prints bring an element of sophistication that provides a stunning counterbalance to the saccharine hues below. And an unobtrusive pendant light adds necessary function without obstructing the abundant natural light washing through the windows. But if you're anything like us, it's that print on the ceiling that you can't get enough of — we love how it makes the slanted ceiling a style asset rather than a design problem.

Enhance any room in your home by papering the ceiling in this whimsical print.
