What Houzz contributors are saying:

In the living room library, Kristin created her own wallpaper by cutting shapes out of FedEx boxes, layering the shapes on top of each other and hand painting each shape.

6. An Antique Cape Cod House Explodes With ColorThis crazy colorful Cape Cod, Massachusetts, home was so chock-full of DIY ideas, Houzzers couldn't help but bookmark it. One of their favorites? The amazing wall covering in this photo that homeowner Kristin Nicholas made by hand cutting, painting and layering shapes made from FedEx boxes.
Samantha Schoech added this to 14 Fabulously Fanciful Living Rooms
The uniting factors in this colorful room are the touches of that orangey red and pattern, pattern everywhere.See more of this colorful house
Nothing about this room can be described as clean, uncluttered and neutral, and yet the crazy mix of patterns and colors works too. Why? Partly because the designer was completely fearless, and partly because geometric lines and bright colors are repeated. See that floral design on the pastel pink pillow? It echoes the bright starburst in the wallpaper. The wooden chair matches the orangey red in the wallpaper, and the pictures themselves are part of the grid pattern. But then everything is loose enough not to look too styled. Confusing, huh?
4. Colorful cardboard-box wallpaper. A collection of old FedEx boxes went to good use for this wall covering — each box was cut into several shapes, layered on the wall and hand painted. See this house: An Antique Cape Cod House Explodes With Color
