Aesthetically I am a definite yes! But definitely a no when it comes to the maintenance.
I love the demension that wallpaper prints add to a room. It just gives such character!!
Can you imagine if this room just had blank walls? It would definitely take away the vintage feel to the room.
If I was going to use wallpaper I would just do one wall to accent a room. That way I am meeting in the middle. I get the detail in the room I want without having to maintain and take down all 4 walls.
Love this dressing room. I like that the wallpaper is a bold print, but in a very simple color so it doesn't overwhelm you! (Love that chandalier too!)
This one is bold, but I REALLY like it. Love the bike accent.
And this one...I love the simplicity! And we all know I LOVE me some chalkboard paint! (looks like gray is the way to go with stripes)
Love the pop of red in the chandalier!
Even though stripes make us think modern, I think you can give them any look you want. Modern, classic, vintage...anything! It's all about the accesories and colors you add to make the room your own.
Another alternative to wallpaper would be a back drop like the one below.
Not sure what magazine this actually comes from, but it looks like it's shudders covered in fabric. You could choose a bold fabric to really make a statement or something that will blend in, but add a little color. I love this idea :) It even doubles as a headboard!
Wallpapering can be expensive and time consuming. Painting is something you can do on your own with just a little bit of help. And covering shudders with fabric is EASY! These are all 3 great ideas to add some spiff to your room maker.
