Any ideas on the room flow from different wallpapers from room to room..should I pick up key colors and alternate so one papered room doesn't lead into another papered room? Should I use the same room paint through the house if the papers are different? How do I not overload, but still use both? Thanks in advance.
Our upstairs is entirely papered. The pink flowered bedroom flows into the beige with hand painted birds hall which flows into the dark green stripe bathroom as well as the yellow flowered bedroom. I don't think it is "overload".
My grandmother's house was a bungalow that too, was all papered. The living room and dining room which opened off of one another had similar paper -- the living room was plainish and the dining room had the same background and then flowers in front. One bedroom you could see from the living room and it was papered in a flowered paper.
Didn't seem to be overload to me either.
Woodwork in her house was all wood. Woodwork in my house is all white. Wood floors in both houses.
And perhaps a vintage house takes more kindly to being fully wallpapered.

In the past, in public spaces, I've used a floral kitchen paper to dictate my public space scheme. I've echoed one or more of the colors in the paper in adjoining spaces mixing in print varieties and scales. In the dining room, I pulled one color w/ white for a monochromatic scheme and to keep the busy feel that could have resulted in check. In others, paint and/or textural Anaglypta paper was used for a change of pace from standard printed paper. Keep in mind too that you can opt for neutral papers in one or more of your adjoining spaces for ease of change down the line.
Generally speaking, there should be a degree of color flow in public spaces tho predominances and hue values can vary.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Froo Froo,
