To wallpaper, or not to wallpaper...that is the question! I know that most of you wince at the idea of paying money for wallpaper, or even paying money to willingly put wallpaper up on your walls. I'm here to try to shift your perception that wallpaper is dated and only belongs in your grandma's house. Wallpaper is definitely making a strong comeback, but not quite like it used to be in the past. The internet and other great websites like, Apartment Therapy help demystify some of the scariness in removing wallpaper. In addition to great "how to remove wallpaper guides" online, wallpaper is no longer limited to the drab, dark colors and patterns that screamed I'm from the 70's. Wallpaper is so cool and fabulous, that you might be caught thinking that brick or wooden wallpaper is the real deal! Lets take a look at how the gorgeous wallpaper trend is a blast from the past, but in a great way.

If you have a small space or live in a darker region of the country, the metallic wallpapers will help reflect daylight and sunshine throughout your home in a warming way.
