Why Your Peel and Stick Wallpaper Needs Art

So, you’ve done it: you’ve taken the plunge to install new peel and stick wallpaper and bring a new pattern into your life. Or you’ve finally found a piece of art you want to design a room around.

The real question: Why not both?

Elevate your walls from boring to museum-worthy with patterns and prints that complement each other. We’ve taken some of the best from Scott Living’s wallpaper and fine art collections for the magnificent mashups below:

Florals and Wall Art Decor

If you’re planning on featuring natural beauty, go for a print that captures intricate details against arcs of white and pink. The subtle pattern complements the artwork without overpowering it.

The Best Art for Botanical Wallpaper Patterns

If you are drawn to abstract geometrics in a subtle yet mature color palette, go all the way with mod blocks against pastel botanical wallpaper patterns so that each color and shape pops with pizzazz.

Textured Wallpaper Time

With purely abstract pieces, thick brushstrokes that add movement pair best with a print that can also capture the subtle details of texture. Here, Lanister blue textured wallpaper imitates the woven charm of denim, highlighting this calming abstract‘s lighter, airy atmosphere. 

Orange canvas wall art and patterned wallpaper

Contrasting Colors with Canvas Art

Layers of orange and peach climb up the Tangerine Sunset canvas art, a bold yet simple piece best appreciated when combined with a dark, mature print that brings out the art’s warmth and vibrancy.
