Pretty Perfection: Wallpaper
I don't know if it's just me, but the word 'wallpaper' sends chills down my back, and not in a good way. I immediately picture bad prints, usually tiny and repetitive, and let's just say dated. In the last few years I have noticed that wallpaper is making a comeback.
My mom told me at a young age that everything comes back...bell bottoms, suspenders, neon, etc. In the case of wallpaper, I think I am ok with it. These bold, bright prints are absolutely beautiful!
I am considering a remodel of my home-office, the only room I am brave enough to attempt wallpaper on. Yes, it's gorgeous and stylish and hip...but it still has that bad reputation! Have any of you removed wallpaper?
When we moved into our house we remodelled the 'nursery' into my office, and removing the wallpaper banner was bad enough. I can't imagine removing this off walls!
For now I will stick with neutral paint colors and just dream while looking at these beautiful and bold prints.
What are your thoughts on wallpaper? Is it something you'd use or something that should stay in the 70's and 80s?
