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, I’m pretty in love with how it all came together.
The only other project I have on the horizon for this room is that I’d LOVE to add a fireplace and tv to the wall between the closet and bathroom! Hopefully that project will happen this year! **EDIT** I added the fireplace, see this post!
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!
