Home Inspiration: 10 Cool Wallpaper Decals

When it comes to interior design, I’m fickle, which is why I’ve never bothered to paint the walls in any apartment I’ve ever lived in. What if I get sick of the color? Or decide half way through that it should be a slightly lighter blue? That’s why I’m a big fan of removable wallpaper decals. They’re all the beauty of a wallpaper or paint job, with none of the permanency. Use them to create an accent wall, or highlight a favorite piece of furniture. And when you’re over it? No big deal, just peel ‘em off. No muss, no fuss. Keep reading »

Vivienne Westwood Debuts New Wallpaper Line

Here’s one way to make your pad truly a home sweet home: by decorating your walls with Vivienne Westwood’s new wallpaper line. The designs, which were brought to life in partner with Cole & Son, actually take inspiration from Westwood’s runway creations and put some of her signature prints back on to the page. Rolls feature a rich terra cotta orange with green squiggles, illustrated white flowers against a black background, and graphic floral prints.

We’d imagine that, like Vivienne Westwood’s clothes, these wallpaper rolls are pretty pricey. Ah, say la vee. Still, good for decor inspiration. [Grazia] Keep reading »

Love Nest: The Coolest Wallpaper We’ve Ever Seen

Attention decorating aficionados! If you’ve never used some really cool-looking wallpaper to add some life to any and all rooms in your house, you have to get with the program. (Never will I forget the pink and green peacock-printed dining room I once had, or the trees-in-a-forest walled living room that made everything seem so cozy.) I just had the privilege of meeting super-cool artist Este Lewis who has taken the concept of kitsch wall accents to the next level by capturing everyday objects, like Saltines, candy dots, pencils, colorful fuses and so much more, on digitally printed wallpaper that’s made for you and your guests to drool over. An entire room might be a bit much, but to make a kitchen panel pop or for slapping your favorite objects on a bedroom wall, the look is divine. Plus, all of her creations are made to order. Check her website for details. [Soy Este] Keep reading »

Crave: Elly Nelly Spray Wall Graphic

Wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor wallpaper is too big of a commitment for us. And we’d rather be out and about on our weekends, not elbow-deep in wallpaper paste. But we’d still like something on our walls that’s more exciting than plain paint. This wall graphic is removable, so we don’t have to make a huge commitment. And it applies easily, so we’ll still get fresh air on the weekend. Now we’ve got another problem, though…trying to decide on a color. [$75, SupermarketHQ] Keep reading »

Wallpaper Only One Wall, Maybe Keep Your Rental Deposit

I’m not a huge fan of most accent walls—you know, the decorating technique where you paint one wall with a color and leave the other three some version of white. It always seems to scream, “This is the wall where I got crazy and really went for it!” Why not buck up and paint all four? If you hate it, it’s paint; you repaint it white.

But when I saw Jason Wu’s bedroom wall wallpapered in a gray floral paper, I had to eat my words. I loved it! Here’s why it works for me: The wallpaper acts like a stand-in for a wall of art. If I could pick a wall to put up a gorgeous De Gournay paper (it’s hand painted, heavenly, and hyper-$$$), you bet your ass I would. If I didn’t have to pay for it, that is. Keep reading »

Crave: Blik Byebi Wall Graphic

What happens when you take Blik, an awesome wall graphics company, and combine it with Threadless, a quirky T-shirt design company? You get really awesome decals to decorate your wall, that’s what. These giant stickers aren’t kiddie fodder; They’re original and imaginative, breathing life into any boring bedroom or dreary office. And, you can vote on which design you want to see in wall-sticker form next on Blik’s website. [$50, Blik] Keep reading »

Cover Your Walls In Fishnet Wallpaper

I adore this fishnet-style wallpaper designed by Jon Sherman and created by Flavor Paper. The hand-printed paper’s pattern is composed of the stockinged legs of retro ladies, and old school bustiers and panties decorate the squares where the design crisscrosses. The available colors are hot: fireball, gold, electric raspberry, and licorice. Unfortunately, at $150 for a 27″ x 15′ roll, this may not be the perfect wall covering for die-hard recessionistas. But can’t a girl splurge everywhere once in a while? [Cool Hunting] Keep reading »

Crave: Super Homey Wall Stickers

I love wallpaper, but I also like the idea of having a non-uniform image stuck to my wall rather than all one pattern assaulting my eyes. That’s why these stickers from Harmonie Interieure are so cool — with messages, patterns, and adorable quotes, your walls will get a much needed dose of oomph and you won’t get dizzy admiring it.

Crave: Wallpaper That Adds Ambiance And Eco-Friendliness To Your Abode

Ninety-percent of the reason I want to own a house someday is so I can wallpaper every room in a different pattern. WalnutWallpaper.com sells wallpaper that is made from non-toxic materials such as water-based ink and untreated papers (no chemical waterproofing of any kind), not to mention wallpaper with some of the coolest and hard to find patterns I have ever seen. Designers include Allegra Hicks, Geoff McFetridge, and Neisha Crosland. After the jump are squares of a few of my faves. [WalnutWallpaper.com via EcoSalon.com] Keep reading »
