It’s no surprise wallpaper has had such a comeback, it immediately adds color, texture, and personality to any space. I’ve always been a fan of wallpaper because of how effective and fun it can be. It’s easy to install and it can change the look of a space instantly and dramatically. You can use on one wall, ceilings, above wainscot, and it architecturally make an impact. With so many incredible brands and designs out there, the possibilities are absolutely endless! Some of our favorites are Galbraith & Paul, Cole & Sons, Cowtan & Tout, AneWall Décor, Schumacher, Philip Jeffries, and Weitzner...to name a few. ;)
We most frequently install wallpaper in powder rooms, dining rooms, accent walls, and we love a good mural in an office or kids’ bedroom. Though if we could install wallpaper in a whole house we would! There’s just no better way to make a statement and make a home your own.
Be careful though…it can be harder to install than you’d assume. Wallpaper is sold in so many different quantities and by patter repeats that understanding how much you need to order is key, and not all wallpaper is created equal. Yes, wallpaper can "easily" be installed but to do it correctly and seamlessly is another thing. I’d highly recommend hiring an installer if that’s in your budget…it’s worth every penny!
