No, not the icky stuff you think of in the same vein as linoleum floors. The new age wallpaper is in a different league altogether. Self-pasting, peel and stick, wallpaper panels are all exciting options we have at our fingertips.

The design options are also enormous- from pretty florals to natural textures and even wall stickers in various shapes and sizes. The trick is to select a feature wall and not paper all 4 walls as they did in the past – less is more remember!

Wallpaper can be an investment piece as some are pretty pricey but if you are just using a small amount for a feature it is worth it. It can really change your space and create a statement. There is also the option of wall stickers- some of which are removable, reusable, and smaller. They too come in a huge variety of designs and might be a better option for the commitment-phobes.

If your style is more natural and organic a woven grass or linen type of wallpaper is a safe bet- as it adds texture to your wall in a subtle understated way.

Bolder choices include large-scale floral prints, classic chinoiserie designs, art deco-inspired geometric designs, photographic prints of natural scenery like mountains, seaside, and iconic landmarks. Also, popular right now a tropical jungle theme. Some designs take it one step further than just lush foliage and include monkeys, birds, and even tigers so you really feel like you’re living on the wild side.

There is a design for every style and budget so shop around and find one that works for you!
