Wallpaper is making a comeback.  The old popular blown vinyl patterns are still around, and will never be a thing of the past. These type of wallpaper patterns are very useful for covering cracks and imperfect walls. The next trend seems to be bold floral patterns and really unusual shapes.

Wallpaper Isn’t What It Used to Be Believe it or not, wallpaper is making a comeback. And today’s patterns won’t make you feel like you’re in an office waiting room or on a Victorian film set — the selection these days is contemporary with bold florals and shapes in sophisticated color pallets. But the question remains of how to make it work in your home. Our tricks will leave your paint roller soon forgotten.
