2010: The year of layered rugs and wallpapered ceilings 20 January, 2010

Every year has its own trend. This year, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, homeowners are making their mark with layers of rugs and wallpaper-covered ceilings.

Just like the endless pots of Marmite lurking in the kitchen, these trends have divided the mydeco team already – there are those of us who love it, and those who wouldn’t paper their ceiling for all the tea in China.

Personally, I think layering rugs is a great way to channel next season’s clashing trend, and for indecisive decorators it keeps all the options open. But my ceilings are certainly staying white.

If, however, a patterned ceiling is all you’ve ever dreamt of, listen to the Chronicle’s advice and avoid using the same paper for walls and ceiling before you jump on the bandwagon.

Do you love these trends, or should they be binned before they’ve even begun?

As always, we want to know what you think, so post a comment below!

I think layered rugs are completely pointless and surely look really messy? I can’t imagine ever wanting to do that. I think wallpapered ceilings look fun though, but quite risky. You need a big and tall room for it to work. I like these risky trends.

Too much of a good thing is never enough, right?! I don’t think it’s possible to have too much of a beautiful wallpaper. Why not use it on the ceiling? The photo from Graham & Brown alone shows just how spectacular it can look!
