Hello friends! After a very sick and dreary January, I’ve finally got a new post for you! This one has been a LONG time in the making. I’m sharing our floral wallpaper in the master bedroom!
Way back at the beginning of last year I completed our Master Bedroom, but I’ve made a ton of tweaks since then! The biggest one being that I moved the wardrobes to our mudroom, and installed this gorgeous wallpaper! Here’s how it looked last January:
The wardrobes were just a bit too imposing, and I always felt like the long empty wall needed a bold statement. My hardest decision was to choose which wallpaper to go with in here. Here were the ones I was choosing between:
** Contains Affiliate Links** A. Spoonflower Jade Floral B. Hygge & West Nethercote Black C. Anthropologie Smoky Rose **Update** I ended up using “C” in our mudroom!** D. Hygge & West Peonies E. Hygge & West Nethercote Gold F. Rebel Walls Bellewood
After discovering a 50% off warehouse sale online, I ended up choosing the Peonies and I’m SO glad I did. I absolutely LOVE it.
Let’s talk about my process for hanging wallpaper. First the supplies. You’ll need:
This wallpaper specifically recommended “booking” the paper, which means applying the adhesive to the paper, folding it in half, and letting it set for a few minutes before hanging. I have to say that worked HORRIBLY for me. Instead I found that pasting the wall worked MUCH better. Before hanging any sheets, I line them up on the table and cut them into sheets with about 6″ extra on each sheet. Then I only have a bit extra to trim off. When you do this the important part is lining up the patterns. I was able to complete this whole wall with quite a bit to spare using one double roll.
As you can see, I installed the paper when the wardrobes were still in place, and then once we moved them I had to add more wallpaper where the wardrobes used to sit. This paper has a gorgeous sheen to it that I LOVE. Here’s a nice close up:
Because this pattern is so busy, I needed a simple statement piece of art for this wall. This log slice print that I moved from our living room turned out to work perfectly.
I ended up finding these matching MCM dressers for under $100 on Craigslist! Between the Blindster roman shades, the DIY headboard, the wall mounted scones (Lamps Plus discontinued), I’m pretty in love with how it all came together.
Thanks so much for stopping by to read! If you’ve considered wallpapering, I hope this post inspires you to go for it! It’s actually pretty forgiving at first, and as long as you measure twice, cut once you can do it!
