2014 Wallpaper Trends: Give an Accent Wall Some Major WOW

Obviously, an entire room decked out with wallpaper could make anyone dizzy.  It may even harken back to childhood memories of visiting your great-aunt Myra (ok, an Amelia Bedelia reference for sure…it’s summer so there has been a lot of reading 🙂 ) where wallpaper was coupled with the stale smells of old rooms.

But, if you have not noticed the growing trends in wallpaper, I can’t wait to share some of these images with you!  We are not only loving the bold and beautiful patterns that are popping up everywhere, but we adore the trend of using them to create accent walls that give a room a major pop of freshness.  And, I have to say, I love that it doesn’t require olympian endeavors to remove the paper when it is time to move on.  Just one wall….that is not too big of a commitment, and the payoff is gorgeous!

The trend of wallpaper is definitely catching like wild-fire here on the Central Coast.  Even when our local Blue Bird Salon pulled back the veil on their recent new location and makeover, I was completely enamored with their touch of wallpaper.  Are you in love??

A while back, Samantha used a similar trend in decorating her new home, by creating a patterned accent wall using paint.  It turned out pretty snazzy.  Get the how-to here!

I couldn’t help but to start hunting around for some other lovely examples of how this trend could make your space sensational.  I genuinely love how an accent wall can make a retro wall treatment feel incredibly current and stylized!  Check out some of my finds!
