  • C ) In the past, the more patterns there were in your house, the richer you were. D) Pattern is usually the first thing we see when we enter a room. E) The eye is always seeking out stimulation. Patterns act as eye magnets for your mind to explore or to get interest from it. F) Science proves that we need a certain level of visual stimulation at a very young age.
  • G) Babies are always interested in busy patterns H) The brain needs stimulation in order to develop and a certain degree of patterning on the wall paper is a good idea to develop the visual part of the brain. I) Do not use grids because they will emphasize how low the ceiling is and how short the wall is
  • J) Wall paper has the ability to cover dodgy proportions. Getting the scale and proportion right means you no longer see your low ceiling or your short wall. K) Three Types of Patterns 1) Florid-flowery, showy 2) Geometric 3) Naturalistic L) Wallpapers camouflage imperfection on the wall
