I stumbled across a forum the other day where the topic of discussion was wallpaper. I was surprised to read that a number of people in the forum STRONGLY disliked wallpaper.
However, I think many people are confusing today’s wallpaper with the papers that were most probably in their childhood homes. Those patterns were very busy in strong colours and the paper was difficult to both instal and remove. And the trend was to have just as much pattern on the soft furnishings and flooring as there was on the walls and curtains. No wonder we all had to have a Bex and a good lie down!
Todays papers are much more elegant in their colour and design and are used in moderation.
A wall behind a bed that has been wallpapered looks fabulous.
Wallpaper under glass in the kitchen splashback creates interest and texture.
Adventurous homeowners can even wallpaper the ceiling.
By using the wallpaper in moderation, it’s not that onerous a task to change it when required.
So have I convinced you? Do you like today’s wallpapers or have you been scarred for life by the wallpapers of the 60’s and 70’s?
