Although she makes it look easy, the designer is an extraordinary editor, able to hone in on a home’s essential but often overlooked elements. “There are interesting ways to use wallpaper without being too obvious or winking,” she says. “If a room has nice moldings, I love to wallpaper the ceiling along with the walls.” Soloff has a knack for mixing natural materials, textures, and colors. “I usually gravitate toward cloth papers and natural fibers, like seagrass. Lately, I’m also drawn to more classic prints, such as De Gournay.” The result? A casual but curated look.

Pro Tip: Line an Unexpected Surface

“Wallpapering unexpected spaces is a lot of fun, like lining the inside of a closet. A glass-front cabinet is the ideal spot for a pretty pattern to peek through, since you’re already using that area to show off your favorite things. An all-white ceramic collection works really well against a colorful backdrop, and the sudden reveal is always a great moment in an interior.”
