It’s official. Wallpaper is trending and is here to stay for awhile, and I couldn’t be happier about it. When I first moved into my current home, I papered five rooms soon after we moved. Since then, I’ve removed it all and painted the walls. And now, I’m back at it. This past weekend I looked at wallpaper designs for my downstairs bathroom and placed an order. Since I’ve got paper on the brain, I thought I’d share a pretty collection of wallpapered rooms with you and some of the trends I’m noticing.
Nature prints of any kind are always popular, like a vines and leaves. I’ve noticed vining patterns tend to come in two colors so they can be a comfortable choice for anyone who’s a bit shy about adding a lot of color on the wall.
Geometric prints can be fun and colorful. This one appears in a stripe-type style. Note the mix of pattern between the wallpaper and the rug, which I’m seeing more and more. This room might be too busy for some of you, but I think it’s cheerful and interesting.
I’ve always leaned toward wallpaper designs that have smaller prints like this one. If I knew the manufacturer of this print, I’d be tempted to order it myself. The paper I chose for our bathroom has a small floral print that looks somewhat historical to me.
Striped wallpaper is always popular, and I love this one. Unfortunately, I shy away from stripes because our walls and floors aren’t perfectly aligned and I’m afraid the stripes will look crooked.
I love this English country style bedroom and wish I could mix prints as beautifully as this. The blend of pattern sizes and colors are so pretty, in my humble opinion. And any wallpaper designs with critters in them appeal to me. I guess that’s why I’ve got bunnies on the paper in my dining room.
A subtle print is a great choice for anyone who prefers a softer approach to decorating their home. I like the addition of the plaid orange and blue rug.
Floral prints are always a great choice. Consider taking a color from the paper and use it to paint the ceiling. It creates a cozy effect which is perfect for a bedroom.
Here’s another nature-inspired print in blue and white. A bathroom is the perfect place to add wallpaper to your home. The room is smaller so it isn’t as big of a commitment.
Rabbits and birds cover the wall of this charming powder room. There’s an unending choice of wallpaper designs, which can be a bit overwhelming when shopping. I have my own rule of thumb when choosing paper. I limit myself to less than 10 books that I look through at the design center. Then I take only three books home and make a choice from there. I realize I could be missing some great designs, but if you shop with FOMO (fear of missing out), the selection could take weeks to months.
Historical wallpaper designs are great for older homes like mine.
Don’t ignore the ceiling! Wallpaper can be a fun choice for adding whimsy in an unexpected location.
Do you have any wallpapered rooms in your home? If not, would you consider it?
