Don't Be Afraid

Oh the dreaded word....wallpaper!  We've all said it and thought the same...too much work and where do I start?!  The truth is, wallpaper has come a long way and with all the latest designs and so much to choose from, there is something out there to fit your life and style.  It can make any room come alive and can also be a great solution to a damaged wall that is beyond repair (as in the case with Toronto stylist Lara McGraw's guest room shown below).  Choose from classic styles that are sure to stick around, or if you feel brave enough go for BOLD!   The trick is to limit yourself to one feature wall and get samples first.  Check out wallpaper images online to get a feel for the scale.  One great website I like to go to is http://www.cole-and-son.com/home.asp  Use their roll calculator and hanging instructions and you're good to go!

I love the wall paper that is out nowadays ..... the big prints, designs etc. I love it all !!! I live in an old house and seriously, every nook and cranny including all of the closets are wallpapered. Since I've moved in there were people that obviously painted over it but it's still there .... I would love to go and try to see what print it has on it. There are probably about a dozen different prints under all that.
