Why Brooklyn Decker Wallpapered Her “Room That Never Gets Used”
No space left behind.

Every house has that formal dining room or awkward sitting area that gets used once a year, usually around Thanksgiving. It’s the place that, no matter what kind of furniture you put in there, you can never quite figure out what to do with. For Brooklyn Decker, that long-neglected space is her den. The actress admitted in an Instagram post on Wednesday that the small, single-window room opposite the staircase is the only spot in her home that “doesn’t get daily use.” The design buff and seasoned renovator is determined to change that‚ and with a mural no less.
“[I’m] hoping this wallpaper draws us in!” Decker shared in a video, showing a panoramic print mid-installation. The scenic wall covering looks to be one of Zuber’s woodblock-print designs; the French purveyor is known for its picturesque illustrations, which it has been making for centuries. (Decker already has a panel from the company’s Views of North America series in her living room.)
According to plans Decker shared this past spring, once the wallpaper is complete, the den will be ready for lounging. (She’s already set the mood with a sculptural light fixture from Apparatus, Lawson Fenning’s Moreno chairs, and the only thing that may have received more attention than the wallpaper in her latest post: a Narnia-esque wood wardrobe.) We expect she and her husband, tennis star Andy Roddick, will no longer be giving the room the cold shoulder, although that wallpaper alone is cause for celebration.
