Inspiration: The 10 Wallpapered Spaces I am Drooling Over

When I designed Penny’s nursery a few years ago, I was so excited to use this wallpaper from Anthropologie that I had been coveting. It felt super bold (wallpaper was just coming back into style at the time), and I knew it would make a huge impact in the room. Due to boldness factor and budget restraints (wallpaper ain’t cheap friends, and it really should be professionally hung), we opted to do the only the top half of one wall. It turned out beautifully, and it still remains the number one thing I miss about our old house. (Pictured below)

Now that I have grown a few years older and bolder, I am finding myself attracted to more vibrant and colorful wallpapers. I still tend to lean toward patterns with a nature theme (trees, florals, botanicals, birds, water), but I am loving the gorgeous colors and patterns that abound these days. Wallpaper is absolutely worth the investment, as it basically makes the room. Little to no artwork is needed, and you are free to keep the rest of the room simple because you have striking artwork plastered all over your walls (literally). It’s a no brainer.

I dream of covering an entire bathroom in a fabulous statement wallpaper or picking a sweet and whimsical pattern for the girls’ room. Sadly, since we are no longer homeowners with the freedom to do whatever we want to our walls, I am forced instead to find amazing examples of wallpapered spaces for you to feast your eyes on. So please, feast away! Meanwhile, I will be researching temporary wallpaper and stencil solutions for renters…
