On Patterned Wallpaper...

I know that wallpaper is in, more so now than ever, but I have mixed feelings about it. I grew up in the 80's, a time where just about every room in the house had some sort of wallpaper. I remember our kitchen had dark brown wallpaper with little acorns on it. "Hideous" was the best word to describe it. Sorry mom, but it was. Since then, I think I have been partial to patterned wallpaper. But lately my eyes have slowly been giving it a chance. I'm gravitating towards lighter shades of paper that do a great job of complimenting the space. The spaces tend to be beautifully accessorized as well, which brings out the beauty of the paper...

I surprised myself when I saw that last photo. The paper is a bit darker, but accessories can get me every time.

What are your thoughts on patterned wallpaper? Love it or leave it?

  1. I say leave it. I, too, grew up with the 80's fad of wallpaper everywhere. I much prefer to leave the pattern to pillows, rugs, etc. Wallpaper is a major pain to remove.

  2. That's a good question.... I think it depends on the wallpaper but it can warm up a room.

  3. Love, love, love a patterned wallpaper, especially in an unexpected places like ceilings!!!

  4. I would love to jump on the wallpaper bandwagon some time soon!

  5. As long as those cheesy wallpaper borders don't come back into style I'm a happy girl. I'm liking the patterned wallpaper but I don't think I would do a whole room in it...except maybe an itty bitty powder room.

  6. I love it and really want to add one to my guest bathroom, starting small ;)

  7. Oh what I would give for a pattern wall. Gorg. Happy Friday beautiful.
