Wallpaper Making A Comeback in 2012

Bold graphic wallpaper is at the top of the must-have decorating trends expected to make a splash this year.

Throughout the years, wallpaper has been a bit of a taboo subject in the world of interior design. Majorly popularized throughout the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, midcentury design showcased a phalanx of wallpaper putter-uppers. Over the years, wallpaper petered out as neutral colors took to the stage of wall accenture and later evolved into bolder and more daring looks with vibrant colors and textural treatments. However, with the recent emergence of modern daring looks, wallpaper is making a serious comeback in today’s design world.

Wallpaper isn’t just for stuffy formal dining rooms or outdated powder rooms. Papered walls have gotten a modern update in recent years. For those wary of committing to a wallpaper pattern, try using a decorative stencil instead. Stencils are an ideal option for decorators who are renting, since the graphics can easily be painted over.
