Family Friendly Friday – Wallpaper

Going bold this week so I thought I would finish out with a Family Friendly choice wallpaper. Is it in or is it out. It’s in if you use it in the right way. The best choices are usually at your higher end paint stores. I also prefer paper backed vinyl, it is resistant to moisture, stains and grease.

In a girls room’s it can be a  really fun idea to do an accent wall with wallpaper.

Or use a simple pattern throughout…

Dining Rooms really look the best with wallpaper. It is a room that doesn’t have a lot of pattern. It can break up painted walls around it in other rooms.

Bathrooms – Powder rooms are my favorite places to hang wallpaper. It is a room where going bold can be done, like a nice surprise when you open the door.


Happy Decorating!
