Wallpaper & Martha Stewart’s Interior Designer

March 18, 2011

Readers of Martha Stewart’s Living magazine have been watching Kevin Sharkey, one of their design editors, as he shows us, month-by-month, how he is fixing up his new apartment.

In the current issue, he focuses on the entryway – “Entrance Strategy.”

Kevin says the entrance is like the HOV lane in your house, because people funnel into and through it quickly, without spending much time there.

So, he says, “If you love, love, love color, but don’t want to commit a larger room to it, a foyer is the perfect place to test a new hue. The same goes for fanciful wallpaper.”

So, if you’re not sure how wallpaper will work in your home, or are feeling timid about using pattern in a primary room, try starting out in a room that is not used much, such as the entry way.
