Trish Johnston’s Top 3 Wall Treatments

Making a statement with your wall treatment is a great way to inject some personality and flair into your space. Decor expert Trish Johnston shares her top picks for wall treatments that can transform various areas of your home.

1. Grasscloth Wallpaper

Grasscloth Wallpaper

This grasscloth wallpaper from Kravet is perfect for a den. It is very masculine and reads like men's suiting. Pair this wallpaper with leather for a wet and dry contrast. The neutral tones are carried throughout this vignette. When using textured wallpaper like grasscloth, choose a low pile area rug so the textures will not clash or compete.

2. Pine Panelling

Pine Wallpaper

This is a fresh take on a very traditional wall treatment. Install the pine panelling horizontally for a more modern look. Paint the panelling a dark colour to keep it feeling contemporary. Apply the paint and wipe it off with a damp towel to achieve the weathered look in this vignette. Keep the furniture modern and not too rustic to avoid the cottage look

3. Stencil/Paint


Paint and a great stencil like this one by Royal Design is a cost effective way to get a really dramatic look for your walls. Stenciling a wall gives you the look of some very pricey wallpaper because it has a hand-block feel. This wall treatment is perfect for an accent wall in a guest room. Keep the colour scheme in the room monochromatic to achieve a look that's cohesive.
