I am so excited to be writing this post- our wallpaper is here!! I have had my eye on this wallpaper for so long. It all started almost a year ago, when my mom and I went to our area’s parade of homes. I walked into this one home and fell in love! I wish I had the home’s pictures to show you, but I wasn’t writing a blog back then and didn’t bring my camera. Can you believe that- no camera! 🙂 The showcase home had gorgeous large print damask wallpaper in the foyer, and it made such a statement! So I kept the wallpaper design in mind and knew I had to try it in my own home. I e-mailed the designer to get a quote on the exact wallpaper and found out it would be about $68 per roll! Not going to work for me- I happen to have a large foyer and need a whopping 12 rolls! So, I did my research. I found an almost exact replica for less than 1/3 of the price! And since it was my birthday recently (yay!) my wonderful husband got the wallpaper as a gift! My mom and I plan to do the work ourselves (thanks so much, mom!) I can’t wait to see the outcome! Here are some images of the wallpaper, from the main site. (I believe the wallpaper was actually purchased from http://www.wallpaperstogo.com/, which is a great, inexpensive source to purchase wallpaper!)
I am so excited to get to work! Here are some other gorgeous prints they offer:
The second peacock image is a closeup of the first. I also love this paper and have been daydreaming a room design around it! E-mail me for rates, if you would like a room designed around this paper. I have so many ideas!
And here is another traditional print, but appears more modern with its dramatic large scale size.
I will post before and after pictures soon, along with a step by step process! Wish us luck!!
By the way, do you have any great wallpaper hanging tips??
