There has been a resurgence in wallpaper. You can see it in residences, hotels, shops.... everywhere now. Eight years ago my husband and I remodeled our home and had all the orange and yellow and pink floral wallpaper stripped from the walls. In fact it was one of the first things on our list, as we could not stand looking at it anymore. We could not wait to have all the walls painted! Well now, I am contemplating at all these cool, new modern wallpapers and I have to tell you, I am having second thoughts.....it is textural, fun, adds a whimsical touch.....so, where does my home need a piece of unexpected personality? While I am pondering on this idea, please check out my top pick for today: "Woods wallpaper" by Cole & Son. It's a forest of bare birch woods. It mixes white and black to excellent effect, don't you think? I say it injects a shot of "nostalgic modernism."
I could see myself sleeping in this enchanted forest.
Your eye is brought up and the space seems to grow.

A small bathroom sparks interest with the
long, narrow birch trees. The trees act as stripes,
visually expanding the space.
Can't commit to wallpapering an entire wall?
Make a big statement as art!
This narrow space is enhanced by a splash
of personality with this wallpaper.

My favorite: wallpapering a kitchen island!
There is a lot of texture in this monochromatic kitchen.
The wallpaper softens the industrial look.

Would you hang this woodsy wallpaper in your home?
Would love to hear from you.
