The Wonderful World of Wallpaper


What do you think of when you hear the word wallpaper? Maybe the oddly lit, dingy den in your grandma’s house or the weirdly textured beige/blue walls in every doctor’s office, ever? I can’t be the only one to think of this imagery every time I think of wallpaper. It’s just not something that makes me think of beautiful design.

Well, guess what? That’s totally changed.

Now, when I think of wallpaper, I think of bright florals, bold geometric shapes, and beautiful abstract pieces. (Thanks to this post on A Beautiful Mess.) Let’s just say – things have changed in the wallpaper world.

If you, too, are looking to add some bold patterns to you home, be sure to give these places a gander.

Peonies (Yellow) //  Queen Anne (Ebony)

How beautiful are these? Albeit, a little busy. But they would look so good as an accent wall!

Girls // Little Whales

The simple + bold patterns would be a great conversation piece.
