As interior design lovers, we’re always looking at how people use color, furniture, light, and objects to create a fun environment. Admittedly, we are easily wooed by bold design decisions that we don’t always have the space, the cash, or most of all, the guts, to make ourselves. For us, though, there’s wallpaper.
Things have come a looooong way since the kitchen wallpaper in your family home growing up, your grandmother’s current hall bathroom, or that horrid motel you had to stay at because it had the only vacancy, rest assured, things have changed! The decorative paper that adheres to walls has regained popularity after taking some time away for self-improvement.
We’ve spotted some very attractive wallpaper in living spaces, baby and kids’ rooms (shout out to Gwen!), the hippest hotels, and coolest restaurants. It’s a great way to add a punch with an accent wall, as can be seen in Sugar & Cloth’s very own guest bedroom makeover, or cover an entire room for a very dramatic finish.
Designs can be subtle, textured, patterned, or mural-style – where multiple pieces go edge to edge to make one large image. Plus, there are tons of great removable wallpapers for renters, or people like us who like to keep things changing around the house.
Now that we’re all on board with this revitalization, let’s take a look at some gorgeous ways to dress up our walls!
