Wallpaper - It's Ba-ack!

Pin It!
Depending upon how old you are, you might remember wallpaper trends from before. And you might have a bad taste in your mouth about it. {Especially if you bought a house with every wall covered & had to get it off! Don't ask me how I know!} But after a drought, wallpaper is making a comeback. 
And I have to say I am on board - with certain stipulations. {Click the blue bar below to read more . . . }

For instance, I would recommend using wallpaper sparingly. I love seeing it on one focal wall. Or see how it is used to accent the woodwork here . . . 
Some new brands claim to be easier to remove. Which is such a positive. Because - let's face it - it IS going to go out of style & we ARE going to get tired of it eventually.
I think the less busy the pattern, the longer one would be happy with it though. Like this pretty starburst pattern above. And while I don't think it would necessarily be a good idea in a backsplash area, I am pretty taken with how well it matches the gold finishes in this kitchen . . . 
And it can look pretty stunning on the right ceiling as well . . .
Some new wallpaper is vinyl & "removable". I'd love to give it a try!
One thing hasn't changed. There's a wallpaper for every taste & style of decor. From feminine to funky to geometric. 
What are your feelings about wallpaper?
