Wallpaper

I use to think wallpaper was so 80s in a bad way. It's funny because there was a time where I looked back on the 80's as the worst decade for fashion and style - and now I view it as original and having a lot of 'tude. I like 'tude. So, now of course - I adore wallpaper. It's absolutely beautiful and there are so so many options to choose from - it makes a room special. It can also act like an anchor (similar to what rugs do for a room).

Many interior designers start a room by picking out the area rug first - I think this method would work as well with picking your wallpaper first. Especially if its super dramatic and a pattern you absolutely love.

There are so many people getting on the wallpaper bandwagon - Kelly Wearstler has designed some textiles, and so has Adler.

Some great wallpaper website to check out:

www.farrowandball.com
http://www.grahambrown.com/ (this site is similar to a wallpaper department stores)




Over the top and bold! A great room to test vivacious wallpapers would be a powder room.
