Well not literally... but I really like this. It is official - Wallpaper is back! I must admit I am probably a little behind the times when it comes to this recent development for two reasons - 1. Josh and I rent our apartment currently and so spending the time/money/effort to purchase and install wallpaper is out of the question and 2. the early 90's influx of wallpaper has permanently scarred my opinion (I'm not sure if I will ever recover from this?!?)

Despite me personally being out of touch with this new trend, it is here none the less. I am excited to see such cool graphic patterns that make such a bold statement. If you are thinking about wallpaper - I would totally go for it! I think it is a great way to spice up a room and can definitely bring a whole new meaning to the phrase "accent wall." I think it would be great for a dining room, accent wall in a guest room or office or maybe even above a chair rail in a nursery. Check more cool wallpaper/ fabric out at Mod Green Pod.

I gave an interior design lecture the other day and one of the topics I discussed was wallpaper! There are some VERY awesome patterns out there.... for me, what did me in on wall paper was the colors: mauve and teal *cold chill down my spine*

Agreed on the colors - I think what did me in on wallpaper was the patterns with matching borders - and not just on border - one for the top of the wall and one for the middle at chair rail height.
