20 Homes Where Wallpaper Rules

Share It

It’s funny how design styles and trends work in my mind. Sometimes I spend so much time thinking about them and over-analyzing them, that once I get them out of my head and onto paper (or onto the blog), I find I actually like them even more. I’ve been thinking about wallpaper a lot lately and how powerful of a tool it can in transforming a space. And with the bold, mural-style patterns we’re seeing on the market today, you can go from a simple room to a dramatic space in an instant. To give some real-life inspiration and examples, here are 20 of my favorite homes where wallpaper has a huge impact — whether on an accent wall, a full room, or a tiny jewel box of a bathroom. Enjoy! xo, grace

    Are there any wallpapers on the market that are easier to remove? Thanks!

      Hi Lizbeth,

      I have had great results with removing wallpaper that comes pre-pasted with Sure Strip adhesive. It’s available here -> http://www.yorkwall.com/surestrip and on select wallpapers carried by Anthropologie. I believe there are other adhesives out there that represent they can removed easily, but I haven’t tried them personally. Here’s one from a well-respected wallpaper company -> https://www.grahambrown.com/us/blog/superfresco-easy/paste-the-wall-frequently-asked-questions

      Good luck!
