Wallpaper was a thing back in the day. You know what we’re talking about because you might’ve even seen it at your grandparents’ house. Over the past few decades, it has gotten a bad rep for being dated and old school. But recently, designers and home décor fanatics have done them in ways that would make the late great Picasso proud. Let’s look at a few examples.
A Doodler’s Dream
You can make anything look expensive with the right accessories. What would appear to be a doodler’s art project when it stands alone, looks like the perfect backdrop for this luxurious room.
We can assure you that this is, in fact, a wallpaper. But doesn’t it look real enough to touch?
Are You Lost?
We don’t want to be crude here, but sometimes, it’s nice to have something to do while sitting on a throne. This map is the perfect distraction or maybe extracurricular activity.
A Prickly Situation
Sometimes the best designs are the ones we have no clue as to what they are, like here. Are they sea urchins or a weird kind of cactus? Who knows?
In The Thick of It
Some of us Like greenery and some of us love it. Clearly, this person is in love and with banana leaves at that!
A Sea of Birds
There’s something incredibly beautiful about flamingos. Maybe it’s the color, maybe it’s how soft and delicate the feathers look or maybe it’s the way they look in a flock, like in this wallpaper.
Swimming With the Fishes
Koi are known to symbolize balance and tranquility and what better space to have it in than your bathroom.
If you love florals but you don’t want to add them to your space in the most typical and obvious way, add it in the form of wallpaper.
A Zeal of Zebras
Doesn’t this room just transport you to place (mentally) where wild animals roam and you can be as free as you want? Well, it does for us.
If you think this was simple, think about how difficult it is to apply a straight line properly.
It’s All in the Details
This tiny bathroom has loads of personality for its size. The designer was also smart enough to place a mirror in the perfect position to trick the eye into believing that the place is bigger than it is.
If you’re one of those people who thought a child’s bedroom could not be a work of art, take a look at this picture and think again.
Dark and Beautiful
More and more people are jumping on the all-back or mostly-black trend and we are loving how expensive and sexy it looks.
Can I Get A Kiss Please?
Going really graphic with your wallpaper can be a disaster waiting to happen. Luckily, everyone loves kisses, so this was a step in the right direction.
Lost in the Jungle
Do you know how hard it is to pull off floral wallpaper without making it look tacky? Any professional interior designer can tell you. But whoever did this balanced it out perfectly with actual potted plants and flowers.
