There is no denying that wallpaper is back in vogue big time. This month on #WomenWhoMake, I featured artisan textile and wallpaper designer Erin Minckley Chlaghmo of Relativity Textiles. Erin’s papers make you want to do something with wallpaper in your home immediately! (at least they make me feel that way). And amazing wallpaper lines are popping up everywhere. See this post from last year on my favorite wallpaper lines.
