Wallpaper

December 29, 2008

Wallpaper has gained a stigma over the past few decades but it’s making a comeback. A very cool and hip comeback. The first house I bought I spent hours carefully peeling away some hideous wallpaper out of the front entryway and bathroom. It was so bad, I couldn’t even pretend it was cool in an ironic way.

Well, after giving it some consideration I think Jeremy and I should wallpaper a room in our house. It was even suggested by a fellow blogger when we were considering the hallway stripes. I’m thinking the office. It’s pretty obvious the walls are not the original plaster and have been replaced with some smooth sheet rock – already set up for us to throw some wallpaper on.

The room already has a black chalkboard wall with the Stendig Calendar in the middle. So there’s a black and white thing going on in there already.

A black and white print could be cool.

Or we could go for something with a little more color.

Like bronze.

Or a lot more color.

Like this orange stem print available from Orla Kiely.

I’m going to sleep on it a little bit but it could happen sooner rather than later.
