Wallpaper Resources and Trends

Wallpaper is making a huge comeback, and I mean HUGE! You can’t look at any interiors focused site today without an article or post about wallpaper. Even familiar retailers like West Elm are creating their own, curated lines of paper.

And, so this means wallpaper has returned to the masses. I am super excited about what I’ve seen many companies producing and promoting lately. Get ready to forget about those terrible sailboats and stripes, or dated floral scenes from your very kind relative’s home (who we will not name here).

The average homeowner may be wary of wallpaper due to the cost and not-so-fun removal process, but there are many ways you can use a little bit of wallpaper and get a big impact (see examples below). There are even some great temporary peel-and-stick options popping up on the market, and more brands than ever are available direct to the consumer.

Here are some of my favorite wallpaper brands at the moment:

BRANDS YOU CAN ORDER FROM DIRECTLY – shop and order directly from the web. HERE is a good tutorial on how to calculate how much paper to order.

Chasing Paper – Removable, Peel and Stick Paper

Rifle Paper Co. for Hygge & West. Using paper as a focal wall behind a headboard is much more cost effective than papering the whole room.

Use wallpaper on your stair risers for extra visual interest.

DESIGNER BRANDS – Usually brands like these are sold “to-the-trade” meaning you need to have a business account with the company, or you need an interior decorator/designer to order for you. They typically have A LOT more options, more neutral paper options, and other textures choices like grasscloth or vinyl.

Osborne and Little – British Company with timeless designs and TONS of options

Osborne and Little Drama - wallpaper a whole room can be very dramatic if you like that look. This is just beautiful in my opinion.
