The Power of Wallpaper!

It’s still trending, people…and I could not be happier! I adore wallpaper and I don’t care who knows! It is the perfect way to layer in a little of your personality into a space. It can add texture, movement, and a ton of interest. And the BEST part? It’s so easy to do.

If you wallpapered in the 80’s or 90’s, you will be happy to know that many wall coverings come pre-pasted now. All you have to do is activate it with some water, book it, and let the glue activate…then you are ready to roll (no pun intended)!

To remove it??? Spritz it with water and gently peel it off.

Are you a commitment phobe? Then try a removable kind. They sell these at Home Depot, Lowe’s, Target, etc. BUT beware if you have an orange peel texture on your walls. This specific kind of removable wallpaper will have a hard time adhering to the wall and your hard work will be for naught. (A quick fix if you are in love with your removable wallpaper print, run to Sherwin Williams and get some wallpaper glue…it will be strong enough to hold up this type of paper and you can also remove it with water later when you are ready).

Here are a few photos of a wallpaper project I finished for a beloved client last week in Lutz, Florida. We made her dream formal dining room come true with this gorgeous print from Graham and Brown. We wanted to do a modern take on art-deco and I do believe we nailed it!

So what are you waiting for??? Give wallpaper a try. It looks best when used as an accent wall or in those nice niches contractors put in the walls. Do you need help selecting your wall covering…and maybe a coordinating paint color? Be sure and give me a call. I would love to help!

Wishing you all the very best,
