A Second Chance Romance :: Wallpaper

I know. I know. The glue. The mess. The scraping. The sanding. Most of us have robust less-than-fond feelings for wallpaper. We were happy to see it go and are now settled in a warm and lasting relationship with our colorfully painted walls.

So, don't have a heart attack when I say that wallpaper is BACK! However, the drab wall coverings of yesteryear are no longer. Today's wallpapers are nothing short of wall art.

I've spent hours searching the land-of-web to bring you some of the best wallpaper designs out today. There's a wallpaper for every budget and every style. And rest assured...the papers of today are much easier to apply and to remove (or so they say)!

Regardless of the pain and agony it caused us in the past, wallpaper wants to rekindle a relationship with us. With the fabulous new wallpaper designs on the market, you might just find yourself ready to take the plunge...again.

(Click on any of the pictures below and you'll be able to see the papers up close and personal.)

Here are some papers that will appeal to the mid-century fans out there...

And here are some art deco and hollywood regency style papers that will inspire the old Hollywood starlets in us...

But what about the sleek moderns out there who only want a hint of vintage? There's some great papers for you too...

Enjoy...and if the project becomes a huge pain in the neck...don't blame me!
