As we continue our Best of the Best series, we are looking at ways to decorate bedrooms. I thought it would be fun to look at something a little bit daring today. Bedroom wallpaper, anyone? Every time I’ve posted about wallpaper in bedrooms (or any room) in the past, I get lots of comments about how you love the look, but don’t love the idea of removing it someday. We removed tons of wallpaper from a couple of our old houses and it wasn’t fun, so I get it. Plus if the pattern or colors feel dated after awhile, it’s quite a project to change it.

I haven’t put up wallpaper in years, but I do have some I bought years ago just sitting here ready to use, so you never know when the inspiration might strike. The biggest factor for me in not rushing to put up paper (besides deciding where to use it and what a pain it can be to install or remove) is not having smooth enough walls. Paper doesn’t look quite as good if you have any bumps in your plaster! You may be able to have your walls smoothed out (or a liner installed) but it can be expensive or messy or both. If you love the look of paper, it might be worth considering.

Today so many of the wallpapers are much easier to remove so don’t let the removal process (or fear of hating it later) scare you out of it if you really want the look. Bedroom wallpaper can make a statement and give a room such a lively and interesting look that plain walls just don’t offer. You can always paper just one wall to give it a try!

Whether you think it’s a look you’d actually use in your home or not, wallpapered walls are lovely to enjoy in photos.

Enjoy the inspiration! Happy Monday!

    I also love the thought of wallpaper but have been afraid to try it. I’m really leaning toward starting in the 1/2 bath so it won’t be such a huge commitment. One question though, all my walls have rounded corners instead of a flat edge. I have a soffit in a half circle shape above my sink that has a rounded edge. (I hope that makes sense!) Would you just skip that area all together? I’m not sure how wallpaper would smoothly go over it…

    Thank you for the inspiration! It’s nice to see how other patterns coordinate with the wallpapers, as that’s always a challenge.

    Seeing the pic with the black cornices makes me wonder, are cornice boxes still “in?” I was thinking of trying to make some with foam for my odd, hard-to-decorate kitchen windows, just to bring some color in. Most of the Pinterest How To’s are from 2011, 2012, 2013, etc. What do you think?

    Hmm…gives me an idea about covering a patchy wall in my bedroom. And I love those black cornices! More food for thought.

    All wonderful inspiration…still on the fence about wall paper…probably due to all the wallpaper I put up in the 80’s =)
    Put I think I may just take the leap with our new home.
    Happy Day!

    I love, love, love all the wallpaper. I’m designing my daughters room and I’m thinking wallpaper would be a great addition. Wish me luck. Very inspired.
