HOME-SPIRATION: Patterned Powder Room

The only thing about wall paper that I really have experience with is being a little kid and watching my parents scrape off bunny wallpaper trim from the kitchen in our new house. I have been a skeptic of wallpaper ever since then! I don’t know about wallpapering a whole room, but I love the idea of using wallpaper in small spaces, the powder room in particular. I think these small spaces are the perfect place to go wild with pattern and print. I find it the perfect place to express the craziest ideas! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for wallpapered powder rooms.

REINCARNATION: Paper Walls

I feel like there is so much to discover in the world of wallpaper. (just as a warning there may be several posts on this because its just weirdly interesting to me) See when I used to think of wallpaper I automatically thought of this terrible wallpaper we had in our kitchen when I was growing up. Some horrible dated pattern with a bunny border, you read that correctly a bunny [eating carrots] border. This wallpaper took a long, rough week to put up, and for that reason and that reason alone it stayed up for many many years.

So do people still use wall paper? When did wall papering become cool again? Is it really cool or even worth the painstaking effort anymore?

Personally, I love wallpaper. I think it adds a unique look to any room. A more graphically bold way to make a statement. And I love anything that makes a statement. Here are some inspiring ways that wallpaper has become modern once again.

Here are a few (not so bunny oriented) wall paper choices that would be great for any room or pop of color! And these are affordable options too! (though lets all agree I would love any room wallpapered up in Jonathan Adler wallpaper at $250 a roll!)

Here is the allen + roth peal geometric print from Lowes. Unfortunately the price was not available online, but I would cautiously assume it is in the normal allen + roth price range around $50-$60 per roll.
