Wallflower No More! Fabulous Wallpapers to Freshen Up Your Space

Whether you want to brighten up an entryway or turn a powder room into an experience, these whoa-worthy wallpapers will do the trick.

There was a time when virtually every wall in the American home was covered in wallpaper, cripplingly kitschy wallpaper—pansies with polka-dots, storybook garden vines and pink rosebuds, Victorian toile, preppy stripes and plaids—but then tastes shifted to a crisper, more modern aesthetic. Wallpaper went out of favor, and nearly everyone was secretly relieved (except for a certain set of grandmothers with a diehard fondness for border patterns featuring quilts and country bears).

But the past is always prologue and now wallpaper is back in a big way. In fact, it’s huge. Led by design stars like Kelly Wearstler (former judge on Top Design), who uses it everywhere, and enhanced by advances in digital printing, this trend shows no signs of slowing down.

Today’s wallpapers come in an endless array of Pinterest-friendly prints and textures often suited for heightened visual impact—on a statement making accent wall, in powder rooms, hallways or bedrooms. Unlike their forebears, they are easy to install and remove, and there are even peel-and-stick versions. Perfect for that little design pick-me-up.
