Not your Momma's Wallpaper

Last week we installed some wallpaper at a client's house and I was telling my mom how excited I was to see the finished product and how great the rooms were looking! She responded by telling  me how interesting it was that my generation is getting excited about wallpaper while she and her friends are all working to take the wallpaper down in their homes. Haha.... well sorry Mom, but we aren't quite talking about the same type of wallpaper here. 

Wallpaper tends to get a bad rep a lot of the time, but wallpaper has come a loooong way since the stuff your grandmother hung in her dining room in the 80's. We use wallpaper in our clients homes ALL THE TIME and most of the time those end up being my favorite rooms.

There are so many amazing modern wallpaper options on the market these days. The options range from soft and subtle to bold and dramatic. Wallpaper can really change the entire mood of a room without even touching the furnishings.

Les Indiennes

I absolutely adore Les Indiennes.... their bedding is impeccable as well. I am planning to order some pillows and a duvet for my guest room in the next few months. I would love to use their wallpaper in my home one of these days.

How awesome is this wine-glass-ring wallpaper? We just installed the color on the left in my client's dining room. I cant wait to show you how it looks when the room is finished!

Detroit Wallpaper Co.

Detroit Wallpaper is a great source for customizable wallpaper. You can actually pick the colors for your order. We used this Music paper in a client's son's bedroom and it turned out really great.

Wallpaper is not cheap, and it is definitely a commitment. Although I think every home should have at least a room or two with wallpaper... it can be an intimidating decision. If you are hoping to add some wallpaper to your home but are nervous about it, just start small. Use some paper in a reading nook or powder bath. Then you can work your way up to a show-stopper installation.
