If you're looking to wallpaper your home, here are three great wallpaper tips from Jo-Anne McDonald.

* Less is always more when decorating with bold patterns and colors. "People always want to do too much," she said. "In a dining room, for example, only paper above the chair rail and paint a contrasting color underneath. To paper the whole room in the same pattern is just too much."

* Don't wallpaper a cluttered house. "If it's a messy, cluttered house, I favor paint. If the house is neat and uncluttered, I will recommend wallpaper because the house can handle it,"

* Avoid wallpapering hallways. "I don't like to wallpaper hallways, especially ones with high walls. It's too much. Paint will do just fine, and save the wallpaper for a room that needs some visual interest."
