A Weakness for Wallpaper
I think we have a serious problem. All of us here at SGD. We're obsessed with wallpaper. It started out small, a bathroom here, a laundry room there. Most clients are game for adding wallpaper to a small space like a powder bath and we are uber giddy when a client says, "sure! I trust you!". It's seriously like Christmas. I think we are turning a corner though to incorporating wallpaper on a broader scale. There's just so much good stuff out there!! Please, just give us your foyer, your powder bath, your dining room. Our wallpaper sample bin is overflowing and don't you want your room to be Instagram famous?
Sorry. Clearly we need help. BUT, if you DO have a room in need of a mini face-lift, check out some of our favorite projects incorporating wallpaper.
True story, we posted an image of this bathroom on our Instagram feed recently and someone commented, "I saw this on another blogger's post?" I guess you know you've gone viral when someone thinks you stole your own photo!

We love this wallpaper so much, we used the blue version here. Can you believe the transformation? Seriously, so good!
Let's face it, few people love doing laundry. Kalen does, but she's weird anyway. Imagine the buzz of the dryer and the joy you will feel when you walk in to your bright, happy laundry room and retrieve a dryer full of warm towels. It's the little things, y'all.

Beyond bathrooms, your foyer is a great place to incorporate wallpaper. We love this trellis design from Thibaut and with this orange/pink color combo, if people don't walk in to your house with a smile on their face then I don't know what's wrong with them!

OK, so maybe wallpapering a whole room might be too much for you. Consider an accent wall. We painted the wainscoting in this dining room a bright blue and contrasted with this terracotta chevron pattern wallpaper.

The wall behind the bed is also a great place for a wallpaper accent wall. If you change your bedding seasonally, just make sure the wallpaper color will work with both sets. Or not, clearly we will mix anything with anything!
