To Wallpaper or not to Wallpaper?

Wallpaper gets a bad rap. Most of us remember it as horrible to put up and even worse to take off, but as it makes more and more of a comeback, some of you might be considering it. Today's wallpaper is much more manageable than the stuff you remember. Methods like "peel and stick" make it easy(er) to apply, and with some removable versions, you can swap it out when you get sick of it.

Wallpaper is a great way to add texture, drama, and pattern to a wall. There's a lot you can do with it; from subtle patterns to bold brushstrokes, there's plenty to choose from. Design Sponge posted an amazing guide to where to find wallpaper, and sites like Amazon and Wayfair offer an overwhelming amount of options. So how do you choose?

First, stick with what you like. There's a ton of trends out there, and not all of them are for everyone. If you fall in love with a design, that's all that matters. It's what you'll love for the longest period of time and make you a happy camper.

Second? Stay with a genre or mood that's already in your home. Are you a fan Boho? Find something natural and plant-inspired. Is your house head to toe industrial? Find something with raw texture. Are you more Scandinavian and Mid Century Modern? Go after clean lines and fresh, neutral colors. 

And lastly, have fun with it! The wallpaper comeback is all about finding the unexpected. How often do you see a wall-sized photo in someone's home? It's also a great way to dress up that blank wall you've been staring at with a little bit of fun, so go crazy! It's your home, go with something 100% you. With all the options out there, your wallpaper is waiting; go find it!
