What's your take on paper that looks like tile? I found a metallic that I'm thinking about putting in our wet bar area. Would it look like we just didn't want to spend the money on tile? If we end up staying here, I would probably put a pantry-style cabinet in that space so real tile would be a waste. I've seen other condos with faux- painted tiles or mirrors there. Better options? Here's a photo. The metallic finish is carried thru the living areas in some lamps, frames, and furniture. As for a new cabinet in the space, it matches the kitchen cabinets now, but is more a part of the DR/living area. Ideas for cabinet door choice? Love to hear your thoughts.
I like the metallic paper a lot- however- from the small view I have- I don't know that I like the gold with the yellow walls...I am sure it ties in with other things in the room- but I would want it to tie in with the walls also. I also question if it is not too modern- but then I don't see much of the room- but the style is too modern for the cabinet. I would take a sample of your paint to the wallpaper store and find a piece that matches- or blends in nicely. I pulled a few for you- but of course- it is impossible to tell color from the computer. I would not disregard or limit myself to "tile" style papers- any pattern would look cool in there. Which is your favorite readers?
