Who doesn't dream of enlarging their home? To give the illusion of a larger room, wallpaper can deceive our sense of perspective.

A trompe-l'oeil wallpaper
The Living room wallpaper is a good example. The living room seems to carry on along the wall as there is a continuation of the parquet floor. The large glass area provides light. The living room could actually be right there in the house, with that style of furniture, and that's what makes the trompe l'oeil so realistic. If you take away the skirting board and the left wall, the space works harmoniously..

The Blocks wallpaper is a good example, with vertically drawn lines of buildings. The city is illustrated with vertical lines that portray the skyscrapers, which can be identified by their different shades of grey.
The Small Dots wallpaper is an abstract pattern consisting of a white background and coloured dots that fade out from left to right across the wall. The effect gives the feeling of a longer wall, and therefore a larger room. The bright colours on the light background enhance the contrasts in the room. The furniture gives a Scandinavian tone to the style of the living room. The wallpaper brings a lot of light into the room. Very bright, it appears elongated.
The décor shown in the image opposite has two main horizontal lines: one that delimits the horizon and one that draws the line between sand and sea. The wooden posts on the right follow the line of the horizon to emphasise it. The low horizontal line continues the line of the sofa to elongate the space.
