All I need to do is mention the word “wallpaper” and I am met with nasty looks and loud and disaproving words and sounds. Can you spell “UGH”?
I am here to tell you that, while wallpaper can be a real pain in the patooty to hang and remove, a well-chosen wallpaper can add texture, drama and beauty to many a wall in your home. Take a look at these examples and then let me know if you have changed your mind:
Obviously not a well-staged photo in the before or the after, it does show you how an accent wall covered in a statement making wallpaper can turn a dull master bedroom into a room where the magic happens, if you know what I mean. Here is the before….yawn
and here is the after. Much better, don’t you agree?
This wallpaper, Best in Show by Osborne & Little, has long been a favorite of mine. And it is the perfect choice to add a whimsical and contemporary touch to this traditional entry way.
And the Philipp Jeffries grasscloth and studded wallcovering I hope to install in my own small den. Can’t wait to see how the room is transformed and I will be sure to share it with you.
A powder room is one of the best places to showcase a beautiful wallpaper. This is a room that you do not spend a lot of time in so there is no concern that a bold wallpaper will be overwhelming but, rather, beautiful.
This one is perfect for a lodge, vacation home or mountain cabin. Wish I had one of those (mountain cabin that is)
