Here are some of the best bold wallpaper designs. From cool, colorful geometric prints, fun animal graphics, and more, they’ll surely transform your space.
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.
It’s a great way to add a punch with an accent wall or cover an entire room for a very dramatic finish.
We did our very own in Sugar & Cloth’s guest bedroom makeover (and actually other renovations that you’ll see below).
Designs can be subtle, textured, patterned, or mural-style (where multiple pieces go edge to edge to make one large image).
And if you’re worried about how permanent these changes can be, don’t.
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.
And remember, most of these wallpapers come in different color options!
