YOU’RE MY WONDERWALL (PAPER)

Paint is over people! Well, not really, but Wallpaper is hot in design and there are so many stylish options available. Why is paper so popular all of the sudden? We are bored…we need to break up all of the grey and beige in which we have saturated our spaces. We want our homes to be warm, inviting, and reflective of our cool selves. Here’s a round-up of the chicest wallcoverings out there…

Quick Tips:

1. Don’t toss the scraps after installation. Use as drawer liners, bookcase backing, book covers, envelopes, and gift wrap.

2. Call a professional installer. This is not the time to risk ruining expensive papers, ending up with a botch job, because you watched an HGTV episode where it looked easy.

3. Use a wallpaper calculator to figure out how much you will need, then double check with your installer or interior designer.

4. Request a sample from the maker. Put the paper on the wall for a few days to make sure you can live with it and that you don’t tire of the print immediately.

5. Entryways and guest bathrooms are the best place to use a big bold pattern
or color. You will get endless compliments and props for your decorating risk­taking abilities!
