This Is Not Your Grandmother’s Wallpaper

Wallpaper, dear wallpaper how you have evolved over the years. Your fragile nature and influence has blossomed into an air of validity. Today’s wallpaper can play a vital role in design and influencing the style of a room. It has the power to control the furnishings and overall feel of a room. It’s the king to the castle, the drummer to the band, the lyrics to my favorite song. Wallpaper can be an excellent conversation starter to your dinner party or can help you project an air of confidence you’ve longed to acquire. Wallpaper can be used in small doses for a big design impact or in an entire room.

I have been on a quest to find a few of my favorite designs and I’d like to share a few with you today. Some are bold and unapologetic. In small doses they can be used in a powder bath, ceiling or the underside of a staircase. Covering a large wall or an entire room can certainly make a immense impact.  Regardless how you may use them, they are fun, make strong statements and are captivating in their own right. Wallpaper is  no longer passé, it’s back with a vengeance and I love it!

 Pucker Up Buttercup by: York Wall Covering

The vintage portraits of women’s faces transcends time and style.  A touch of red against a white backdrop enhances each alluring face . It’s feminine, fun and a perfect blend of traditional and modern. I love the artists pen-and- ink style.


 Anemone-Shell by: Astek Wallcovering

The handmade designs are inspired by the sea and it’s movement of the tides. Astek gives its clients a glimpse at life beneath the waves. I find their Submerged collection to be calming, tropical and fresh. They bring a sense of serenity and vastness to a space.

Montauk by: Schumacher

The craftsmanship has elevated when they created this wall covering. This luxurious textured  wallpaper is crafted entirely by hand using humanely gathered natural feathers. I can see how the love for this wallpaper may scare you, but used in the correct setting and home,it can be spectacular!

 Magnetic Woodland’s by:  Sian Zeng

If I had a daughter her bedroom walls would have been draped in Sian’s wallpaper. It embodies the look and feel of sweet innocence, tutus and rosy cheeks.  This playful wallpaper allows children to create their own mythical  stories. It encourages them to use their imaginations amongst the trees using an array of wondrous magnetic creatures and write-on speech bubbles. It can act as an ever changing piece of art as the magnetic buildings, flowers and characters are moved around by your loved ones in the most in magical of ways.
