As a seasoned designer and DIYer, I’ve found that wallpaper can be an incredibly powerful tool to elevate a room. From modern prints to classic florals, it’s an easy way to transform the look and feel of a space. I’ve seen time and time again how a simple roll of paper can add color and texture, instantly making a room feel more inviting and interesting. I’m excited to share some of my favorite projects with you, complete with before and after visuals of the room makeovers I’ve done.

I don’t like playing favorites, but this one might be. There was a lot of hard work that went into transforming this bathroom from flooring to custom trim work – but the wallpaper really steals the show! I love the combo of a detailed painted trim and coordinating wallpaper. I used the color “Cobblestone Path” by Benjamin Moore here.

This quick makeover was one of my very first projects! I painted half of the wall, added a trim piece, and then this peel-and-stick Simba Wallpaper. Easy afternoon makeover!

Can you say closet office… or “cloffice” makeover?! My last home lacked a dedicated workspace, so I turned the guest bedroom closet into my own personal office! This is a peel-and-stick wallpaper from Chasing Paper that was the perfect neutral to give this nook some personality. I elected to stop at the desk to save money and love how it turned out!

One of the many reasons I love wallpaper… when it’s time to change the style of a room, you can change the wallpaper as well! I peeled off the nursery wallpaper and chose this pretty pink floral when I moved Alice into her own room. I opted for a feature wall in this room with some pretty trim to break things up. I took the wallpaper to the local paint store and had them create a custom color that coordinated with the print for a perfect match!

Did I already claim favorites? I knew I wanted a whole room print for Alice’s room that played off the traditional Jenny Lind bed. A bold print can decorate an entire room with minimal need for other accessories.

Did you know that adding blue or green is a great way to “tone down” orange wood? I didn’t have the budget or time to change the wood in our cabin, so I decided to add blue and green accents throughout. The addition of this Bellflowers Morris & Co Wallpaper in the primary bedroom was a quick afternoon project and added an insane amount of personality to this space.

I wrote an entire blog post about how this wallpaper was the inspiration for our home theatre room. Dark, classic, and tons of personality! I opted for moody trim work in the color “Railings” to finish this sophisticated media room space.

If you’re a fan of pattern but want to minimize color, there are so many options for black and white wallpaper. This meadowfield print was perfect for our shared kids bathroom. Neutral with a hint of playfulness!

All in all, using wallpaper to transform a room can be a great way to make a big impact in a space without breaking the bank. From creating a feature wall to papering the whole room, wallpaper can be a great way to add color and texture to any room. Whether you’re looking for something bold and daring or something subtle and classic, wallpaper can help you create the perfect look for almost any space in your home. What are your thoughts about adding wallpaper to a room? Ready to give it a go?

    I love what you did with wallpaper.
    I’m a novice, wondering if peel and stick paper is very tricky.

      Thank you! I actually prefer real wallpaper for ease of installation but peel and stick is a great beginner project!
