Wallpaper Love

I've been asked quite a few questions recently about the wallpaper in my living room. It just may be my favorite thing in my whole house. As soon as it went up, the pattern and the soft colors made the room finally feel complete. I have not tired of it yet!
Some of you want to see a better picture so I tried my best to get a few that capture the pattern best.




And here is the whole room again with the wallpaper on the back wall.



The other questions were regarding its source. I ordered it through a local paint and wallpaper store in town. I looked into it again and unfortunately it has since been discontinued! :(



I'd like to share a little lesson learned...
When I first fell in love with wallpaper, I knew only of the ones features on my favorite design shows or magazines. Often $250/roll with a minimum 3 roll order. WAY out of my budget.

I came to find out that there are all kinds of sources that are very affordable and offer the same effect.. or at least I think so! The paper for that whole wall cost less than $75 and I think it looks pretty great!

Less than a great piece of art, but with as much impact. Only downfall? Let's be honest... a pain in the butt to install. A two person job which inevitably leads to a wee bit of frustration :) Worth it though!

  1. Your living room is absolutely adorable! Love the impact of the paper. We found amazing less expensive wallpaper from Graham and Brown and did our guest bathroom. It is my absolute favorite!

  2. The wallpaper adds so much dimension to the room, I like that it is a smaller scale pattern. Lovely! I can see why you haven't tired of it...
