For those of you who are unfamiliar, my background is in interior design though now I focus more on crafting and DIY living now here on Lars. But, did you know that I write for the Caesarstone blog, Interior Collective, twice a week? Yup! I write about all sorts of topics surrounding interior design. I’ve decided to channel some of my interior design advice more onto my own blog as well and thought I’d start out with one of my favorite topics: wallpaper.
Wallpaper has the ability to transform a space with very little. A plain basic room can feel polished, whimsical or sophisticated with a simple roll of paper. True, wallpaper can be very expensive, but if that’s the only thing you are using to decorate a space, I say save and make the investment! For the past few months I’ve been creating a resource guide on where to find gorgeous papers for the non-designer, meaning places where you don’t need to have a designer in order to buy it, like what showrooms often require, and today I’ve sharing them with you and including some of my favorite spaces using wallpaper and why they work.
Above, this Josef Frank wallpaper is one of my favorite designs. In fact, my friend Meta just upholstered her sofa in the same fabric and it’s divine. Josef Frank’s patterns are nearly a century old but are still so fresh and modern. They work well in a variety of styles, but I especially love it when you bring in rich woods and contrasting patterns.
Below, this gorgeous bright floral wallpaper is expertly combined with similar colors and contrasting patterns to create an eclectic yet romantic feel.
What room would you wallpaper if you could wallpaper any room?

Here’s the complete list of wallpapers you can order right off the Internet, rather than go through a designer. I’m not discouraging using a designer or their access to great companies, but this is accessible and there are a lot of great options. If you have one that I need to know about, please comment and I’ll edit the list.
