WOW Wallpaper!!

Back in February I wallpapered an accent wall in the bedroom with Seabrook Designs Silhouettes wallpaper. Although it's been done for more than a month, it still puts a smile on my face every time I walk in the room - now that's a sign of a job well done!!



The wallpaper creates a beautiful backdrop for the focal wall.

Many people are concerned that if they put up wallpaper, it will be difficult to take it down when they want a change. But wallpaper has evolved, and now it's easier to take down than it is to put up. Several companies offer "paste the wall" products instead of pasting the paper - this method involves using a paint roller to apply paste to the wall and then sliding the paper into position. If wallpaper is applied using this method, it can later be removed by with a simple "lift & peel".

You can transform the look of any room by papering just one accent wall - be prepared to commit 3 or 4 hours to the project from start to finish. Check out all of these amazing wallpaper options:
