"I can't stop wallpapering. It's sick," admits Christiana Coop, who has turned her San Francisco apartment into a lab of sorts. An interior design consultant and U.S. representative of Denmark-based Ferm Living, Coop finds easy, innovative ways to transform her home ― from stairs to ceiling ― with modern, colorful wallpaper.
"I like to use it as art so that it adds a fun dimension but doesn't overtake the space," she says. By choosing smaller projects,
she gets to experiment without committing an entire room to a single color or pattern.
THE TOOLS YOU'LL NEED
1. Wallpaper and wallpaper paste
2. Tape measure and ruler
4. Craft knife (such as an X-Acto knife)
INFO The wallpapers used in these projects are from Ferm Living. For more info and a design consultation, contact Coop directly (415/399-1559).
