Wallpaper with Curves

Many renovations and new builds are featuring curves in main features such as a kitchen island bench or curved archways to a room entry. But what if you love this design but are not wanting to invest in a big renovation or structural change? You can introduce curves with furniture and wallpaper.

By using soft, curvaceous lines in modern architecturally designed homes will help to soften sharp edges and sleek lines. So if your space is full of sharp edges using a wavy line through your wallpaper will help soften the effect. As will placing a rounded edge piece of furniture like a plant pot.

Using soft horizontal lines around all walls in a room also give a curved illusion disguising the boring straight walls!
