Wallpaper is still on my wish list, and I’ve been on the lookout for patterns and colors that could potentially work somewhere in our house. Most of our rooms are neutral with touches of color, so going bold or graphic in a definite color would mean stepping way out of my box. To be honest, part of the reason I enjoy being a designer is working with clients who are ready for a change and want to go with something that’s a little more daring. Thankfully, those chances we’ve taken so far (sometimes with our fingers and toes crossed) have paid off.
For me, there’s a pretty good chance I’ll stick to what I know and have loved for many years and choose something that’s a little more subdued. I’ve learned over the years what works for me in the short term and what has staying power. Wallpaper is something that’s a little more permanent than changing out a colorful vase or pillow. But, for those of you who are willing to go all the way, I’ve found some wallpaper options that will take you there…
Perhaps it’s just because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, but I’m really drawn to pink at the moment. I love this graphic Grata wallpaper design from York Wallcoverings. If I had a dressing room or my own walk-in closet, this is a wallpaper I would definitely consider.
Look how pretty and spring-like this watercolor peony wallpaper is from Anthropologie! I could see this in a powder room with white-painted wainscoting below or on the back of a bookcase or cabinet for a touch of color.
