Kippie Leland of Leland Interiors used Schumacher's Ming Cherry Blossom wallpaper in aqua in this bath.
When we ran a piece recently about the resurgence of wallpaper, illustrated by the photo here, a lot of people loved this bathroom treatment. But of those who didn't, the backlash was pretty severe. Sample comments on our wallpaper Facebook post:
"Would rather pull nails from my head than have wallpaper!"
"Pass, pass, no way, thank you. It's too hard and messy to remove, and much more difficult to change decor. I've used it in two homes, and will not ever do it again."
"It's just hard to get the wallpaper from the '70s out of my mind."
"Gonna pass. I have had to scrape way too many layers of wallpaper off walls!"
"Looks like the bargain bin of Wal-Mart."
"Just removed all of ours. Never again!"
Well, at Yahoo! Homes, we love few things so much as a challenge. So we asked ourselves whether we could change your minds.
Many complaints seemed to focus on how hard wallpaper is to install and remove. So we narrowed down our search to temporary wallpaper that's easy to peel off when you're tired of it.
We also tried to stick to modern wallpapers that don't have too strong a whiff of the 1970s or Victorian tweeishness (yes, we just made that word up).
Click through our examples here. Then let us know in the comments how we did. Have we opened your mind to the possibilities of wallpaper? (If not: Have you considered stencils lately?)
