Top Ten Bedroom Wallpapers

By now you’ve sumised we have a thing for wallpaper–in basically any room in the house! Wallpaper in a bedroom can be beautiful, especially if the pattern is large scale enough. We shy away from small patterns in large rooms because they tend to have a dizzying effect (we like to save the little patterns for bathrooms and small entryways). We often cover bedroom walls in a soft colored grasscloth; this helps bedrooms feel cozier and more enveloping. We also love to use floral and botanical motifs in bedrooms–especially the more free form patterns that make you feel as if you’ve stepped into an enchanted forest or a secret garden. 4.15.15_final_wallpaper_roundup11. de Gournay wallpaper. Hand painted on paper or silk, these French wallpapers have the ability to transform an entire room in one fell swoop.

    Hi, I was wondering if you could help me find the name of the wallpaper you used in a hall/staircase? It looks like a tan grass cloth with white leaves dotted in it placed in vertical rowes. The photo was of a hallway looking into a living room with a white mantel and a round black mirror, There is also a navy blue ottoman in front of the fireplace, I would be most grateful!!!!!! thanks so much!!!!!
