Have you been in on the uptick in the use of wallpaper over the last couple of years? I've been completely suckered-in by the design world's recently-renewed love affair with papered walls. We're not talking your grandmother's (or mother's!) floral mylar papers from the 80s (although some of THAT is even making a comeback!) Instead, there's beautiful and intricate patterns that are often used to add whimsy and interest - a brilliant move, considering the stereotype for wallpaper is that it's staid and stale...
Oh, but the choices are ten-fold! Ever heard the story behind this Banana Leaf pattern? It was originally designed for the soda fountain bar at The Beverly Hills Hotel in 1949.
But if you prefer a paler palette - these three were on Ebay
So, what do YOU think? Would you take the plunge and paper? You know, taking a small space (like a tiny guest bath) and doing something bold with it, often turns it from ho-hum, nice-enough to Wow! Statement! ;)
