The very first thing I noticed when we toured our new home was “oh my gosh, there is so much wallpaper!” And I love wallpaper. Just not 35-year-old wallpaper that is barely still clinging to the walls — all of it is in really bad shape.
So I thought it would be fun to share a little wallpaper home tour before we rip it all out! Get ready for lots of vertical stripes and patterns.
It’s the curtains at the top for me…
Bedroom Wallpaper + Sponge Paint
So the bedrooms are extra fun because we have a combo of wallpaper and SPONGE PAINT! Wild, right?! I love seeing past trends and I know this one was a big one once upon a time. And it took me several trips through the house before I realized it was PAINT and not wallpaper!
Another sponge paint room to show ya! This is actually pretty cute for Caroline’s room, but a lot of got ripped out when the drywall was replaced.
Let’s tackle all the bathrooms at once, shall we?
And this one is extra fun because it’s the jack & jill kids bathroom…with THREE different wallpaper prints! It’s a wild experience walking through this hallway.
I promised you some vertical stripes, didn’t I? Well, I’m here to deliver.
Peep that intercom system too. If that thing still worked, I would totally keep it.
Last not certainly not least, the faux wood paneling wallpaper.
And that concludes our wallpaper home tour! I hope you enjoyed some throwback trends and a peek inside our new home!
