Wallpaper is back! And, I love it. I am obsessed with big, bold prints, but do I have the guts to do it in my own house? Thankfully, with the new easy-change wallpaper, it's no longer a "til death do you part" kind of commitment. This is what I'm dreaming about in my dining room:
Current blah dining room:
I purchased the table & "matching" (ugh!) chairs for our previous house, when I was feeling more of an Old World style. Unfortunately, we just bought it within the last few years so I'm not quite ready to break it to the husband that I'm ready for a change. Sometimes, we just have to work with what we've got. I'm hoping a fun wallpaper with give the room a more contemporary feel. And, you can't get much more fun that lime green and metallic damask.
The key to going bold with wallpaper without being overwhelmed? Try it in small spaces. Since I have a chair rail half way up the wall, that will cut the amount of pattern in half.
You could always start with the powder room. Probably the smallest room in the house that you spend the least amount of time in.

Would love to see pictures of any spaces you've recently papered!
