Wallpaper? Really? Yup! It’s making a comeback. Another re-entry from the 70’s. I’m not sure how I feel about it, and if you have textured walls forget about it! All those little creases and crevices that can look so cool when glazed just won’t work under wallpaper. And have you ever tried to remove that stuff? YIKES!
BUT…….there are some fantastic prints and textures (textures can hide some of the imperfections in your walls) out there to definitely consider. I saw a cool print in a laundry room (which seems to be the most popular place for it right now) in a great home show; a subtle print with parrots. Sound like an oxy-moron?
Some say there have been many marriages driven to the brink while attempting a wallpapering project. Consider how well you and your spouse work together in tandem before tackling this venture. I can honestly say that my husband and I are a great team when it comes to wallpapering. He measures and cuts and gets on the ladder. I stay below and line the bottom portion up and lift and smooth. Then he lifts the upper half off the wall again because it was not perfect and I stay below and line the bottom portion up and lift and smooth…repeat. But because of his good patience with tedium it works out great!
If you’re in the mood for a fun change, give it a try! Maybe just one wall……in a small room……..out of the way………and have fun! Try wallpapering a little nook. It’ll look fabulous, I promise!
