dramatically different.

pale pink and black bedroom wallpaper and decor. / sfgirlbybay

i’ve had a decor crush on the beautiful bedroom treatment just above for a long while now. there’s just something about the playful mix of pattern and textiles that are so unexpected and chic. i’d love to just use a strip of wallpaper as a kind of headboard like they’ve done here with a Chinoiserie print and a contrasting batik fabric. i love dessin fournir’s rose cumming pattern in pink (just below) — the look of a ‘faux tufted’ headboard would be fun!  i’ve painted like crazy however i’ve not done a lot of wallpaper before — but wallpaper and murals can really add a unique and dramatic look to a room, so i’m seriously considering taking a stab at my own version of this look in my bedroom. are you a fan of wallpaper? could you ever do a full wall mural? do tell!

    The last photo of the misty pine forest treetops could completely change my mind about wallpaper murals. I would never tire of waking up to that “view”.

    These are gorgeous and inspiring. I’ve always been in love that top photo as well. The walls on my house are too textured for wallpaper. I did, however, splurge on a bit of that cactus wall paper you feature here for a project I’m working on. We are converting a school bus into an RV and I’m putting that wallpaper in the bathroom! It’s the tiniest bathroom in the world, so I can actually afford to wallpaper it, ha!
