Check out these great options for your walls


1. Modern Wallpaper

Prints are back!  But this isn’t your grandmother’s wallpaper.  Fussy floral designs and passé paisley prints—definitely out.  These days you can find some seriously cool patterned paper to adorn your walls.  Used strategically, wallpaper is like the icing on the cake for any space that needs to be kicked up a notch.  Like window treatments, wallpaper can really finish a room.  Check out www.burkdecor.com for more styles.  I love this one!  It’s perfect for a hallway or a wall in a home office.


2. Stencils

 Wall stencils are a fresh alternative to framed wall art and a creative way to add an artistic flair to a drab space.  You’ve seen them used in children’s rooms (think Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and the gang), but they’re not just for kids anymore.  Check out some fun yet sophisticated options here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/CuttingEdgeStencils.

Another neat thing about stencils is that you can also use them to amp up your flooring! 







3.  Decals

How cool are wall decals?!  With so many different designs to choose from, you’re sure to find one to suit your space. And because they peel off easily, you can change the look of your room on a whim without spending a lot of time or money.


4. Chalkboard Paint

Mommy tip:  Need to keep your children occupied while you’re washing dishes or cooking dinner?  Paint a wall in your kitchen with chalkboard paint!  Kids can write, draw and create where you can keep an eye on the little monsters.  Easy to clean, it’s the perfect spot to leave fun messages or reminders for the family. It’s also a great place to hang the kids’ art work. Oh, and if you’re having a dinner party, try displaying your menu creatively on your handy kitchen chalkboard.  ; )



Which one will you try?

    Great tips, ColorVision! Love the stencil on the floor suggestion 🙂 I’ve also found that if you’re a little shy about wallpaper on an entire wall, framing wallpaper pieces is great for commitment phobes (like myself)
