I know some of you are still very very scared of wallpaper. Especially those of you who remember your mom’s yellow and orange wallpapered kitchen or your grandma’s flowered wallpapered living room. Wallpaper definitely went through an awkwardly ugly phase. Not to mention how awful old wallpaper is to remove.
This photo is probably all it will take to remind you of how much you hate wallpaper.
But give wallpaper another chance! It doesn’t have to be that awful.
How about papering just a small entry? A powder room? Or just an accent wall? Don’t be afraid. Wallpaper is back in vogue in spite of those painful memories and there is nothing like it to warm up a space and give it instant pizazz!
I put some beautiful wallpaper in my shop (above), and I am thinking about using it for my powder room or bedroom. Someday. When I have time to think about projects like wallpapering. For now I have people over with half-painted rooms and I have to be content with that. But I do love rooms with wallpaper!
Don’t you love that entry? So pretty.
So are you brave enough to try wallpaper to are you gonna “just say no”?
