The photo above shows a modern approach to using wallpaper in the kitchen. Old cooking styles were generally dominated by wallpapers depicting fruit or other culinary motifs or floral prints. This modern take has gone for an expansive tree pattern. But the coloring of the gray tree corresponds to the updated neutral color scheme of the rest of the space, which gives it a natural appearance while remaining cosmopolitan.
The wallpaper surrounds the white cabinets well. This is a good example of the very subtle way in which a wallpaper background can be integrated into the background of a kitchen.
