Now don’t cringe when I tell you that all of that paper that you just ripped down is back because chances are, that paper needed to go….. out with the old, in with the new! Wallpaper is BACK… back for dining rooms, bedrooms, powder rooms… and just about anywhere you can afford to hang it. Painting is definitely the cheaper and easier way to go, but if you want to add a bit of personality to a room, go with WALLPAPER!
Anytime I am in Lilly Pulitzer, I make myself try on something so I can visit the dressing room. It’s bold, fun and full of Wallpaper! This same look can be created in a girl’s bedroom or a bathroom.
But Mary, where do I buy wallpaper? I am so glad you asked! Hanging wallpaper is not a cheap project, so I am always looking for the best places to order. Online is always, going to give you the best deals, but it can be difficult when you can’t touch or see it in person. Just about every online company will allow you to purchase samples. Some paint stores still cary wallpaper books, but most have stopped carrying it due to the high cost. If you are fortunate to have a supplier in your area, check out a few books, bring them home and stare at a few samples for a day or two. You need to make sure you LOVE your paper, because once it’s hung, you are committed for a little while!
Here are some of my favorite online wallpaper sources:
Most paper is priced by the single roll. Rolls can range from $20- $100 per roll and your wallpaper hanger will average $35 per roll to hang. But the investment if worth the reward that you get with wallpaper.
