The Wonders of Wallpaper

I love that wallpaper has made a comeback in a big way. The wallpapers out there today are not your grandmother's wallpapers (although you can still get some of those too, if that's your thing). Today's wallpapers are modern, bright, sophisticated, and delish! Take a look at these!

I am truly in LOVE with this wallpaper by Cole and Sons. I used it in a mud room with big windows and a painted white concrete floor, and it STOLE the show!

This picture not only shows off the FABULOUS wallpaper, but how adding a little dash of a warm color (the pink pillow and orange lamp shade) to a cool color pallet can really take a room to the next level.

I love the subtlety of this mirrored wallpaper by Anna French

I love a good dramatic wallpaper in a small bathroom, don't you!?

I am crazy about this gray paisley wallapaper...can't you just see yourself with a cup of cofee and a good book... (Photo from BHG and Designer Veronica Toney)

This photo is BEYOND beautiful. This may be wallapaper, but you could easily create the same look with paint and masking tape. (Room design by Brown Design)

Sweet yellow wallpaper by Casa Mila. And again, notice the placement of the cool toned blue chair against the warm toned yellow wallpaper...getting the picture?

Crazy Fabulous! I know this look may not be for everyone, but it IS lovely to look at in someone else's room! (Cherry blossom wallpaper by Clarence House)

Oh how I LOVE this wallpaper by Thibaut. In fact, I'm hard pressed to find a wallpaper by Thibaut that I don't love...

For those of you who find this whole wallpaper idea a little too much...I brought back an example of the calm and sophistication of grasscloth wallpaper.

Yes, it's Thibaut! Didn't I tell you? Amazing papers, right!? This is from their "Julian" collection. Very Jonathan Adler...

This one is so perfect! I'm thinking about featuring nurseries next week, so you may be seeing this one again!

This is WOVEN WOOD VENEER! Seriously! (Design by Masse Frankfurt)

Love the look of this room I found on the "madebygirl" blog.

Great way to create a focal point and add texture and visual interest to a large room. (photo from Movingdesignz 2)

Rich and bold...but subtle. I LIKE!

Love this "Rubani" wallpaper by Romo for a formal dining room or half bath.

And yes, again, it is Thibaut. Just can't help myself...

I ADORE this flocked (yes, I did say FLOCKED!) wallpaper I used in this retro dining room!

Ohh...and this one from Hooked on Walls I used in a guest room.

What's YOUR favorite?


  1. I like the room in the second image. OMG GORGEOUS!
