7 best spaces and places for wallpaper

Wallpaper is making a big comeback in the world of design, and we’re fans. We recently posted Beckham’s Nursery Reveal where we used wallpaper and…it’s our new favorite space. Sometimes wallpaper can be scary because if you get tired of it and gotta tear it all off it can be a real pain, but it makes such an impact on a room. If you’re a little nervous about covering your whole room, installing wallpaper on just one wall will make a big statement. Check out below some of our favorite rooms where you should use wallpaper:

1. Bedroom

The wallpaper on these bedroom walls liven up the space and add an element of surprise without taking over the entire room. We love how they showcase the bed, creating a focal point, and draw you into the space. The floral walls are more subtle and feminine while the geometric pattern is bold. One accent wall is perfect if your intimidated by wallpaper and want to start small and it is also fairly inexpensive. Instead of doing an accent paint color wall, give wallpaper a try. You’ll love it!

2. Nursery

Here is Beckam’s nursery where we used wallpaper from Rebel Walls that looks like a forest. This wallpaper makes the wall pop and creates a natural and earthy feel in this modern bohemian style nursery. I had a friend over this past weekend asking if it was one big sheet, but it was actually four separate sheets and you can’t even see the creases. We just did the one wall to create an accent wall. Beck’s nursery is a pretty small space so I thought if we did all four walls it might look even tinier. So we painted the other remaining walls white to brighten up the space.

Our friend Jen also did an accent wall in her little guys space. I mean..how cute is this?! See more of her home with the fun interview we did with her on the blog HERE.

3. Bathroom

The bathroom another super fun space to install wallpaper within. I’m super eager to do one of our small 1/2 baths in our home. Except I want to go pink and floral so I still need to give the hubs some extra love to get that go-ahead. haha!

Even though the bathroom is a small space, wallpaper in this room adds drama and incorporates fun patterns. It’s also a good way to bring in an element of fun without having to use wallpaper in the entire space. I honestly think bathrooms are one of the most fun spaces to put wallpaper within. Especially if it’s a powder bath, becuase it’s a small enough room and one that you won’t get sick of. And if it’s a space for guests I guarantee they will always be wow-ing up your room.

4. Laundry Room

Who wouldn’t want to do laundry in this room? While the laundry room isn’t a place where you normally hang out, this wallpaper creates a soft, cozy vibe and makes the room feel more inviting rather than a room you just go to for throwing clothes in the wash.

5. Living Room

Love, love this space. In this living room, the wallpaper pattern ties in other elements in the room such as the table and chairs. Bright large scale floral prints are a hit right now. I like the simplicity of the solid color in this design. With wallpaper like this you could even have little next to no decor to make a big impact.

6. Dining Room

Dining rooms used to be stuffy but adding some wallpaper makes this dining room so fun! Rather than buying large artwork for the room, install wallpaper that makes the whole room look like a piece of art.

7. Home Office
