It feels like forever since I’ve compiled a Best of Etsy post. Even though it’s been a bit, I love discovering hidden gems the site has to offer. I’m pretty ecstatic with this month’s Etsy haul because it’s a giant roundup of wallpaper! I’m anxiously awaiting the day I get to add wallpaper to our home. I really miss having some pattern on the walls (remember my old hallway?)… that’s exactly what I’m craving. Click through for my favorite patterns, as well as my suggestions for rooms to install them. A bunch are even removable- so if you’re renting (or scared to commit), no biggie!
I’ve honestly found Etsy to be the most affordable when it comes to purchasing wallpaper, and now that removable wall covering technology has evolved, there’s never been a better, risk-free time to give it a try. I’ve broken down the roundups by the rooms where I would install the wallpaper, but it’s all pretty interchangeable… this is just my personal preference or what I envisioned first!
Once our kitchen wraps up, we’ll be moving onto our laundry room and I’m 99% convinced that I should wallpaper the space. The only thing that is keeping me from committing fully is the fact that we haven’t nailed down floor tile quite yet.
01: zebra wallpaper // 02: blue escher wallpaper // 03: channels wallpaper // 04: black and gold wallpaper // 05: art deco wallpaper // 06: puffer fish wallpaper // 07: blue palm wallpaper // 08: black buffalo check wallpaper // 09: waves wallpaper
Let’s begin with powder rooms and bathrooms- this is the perfect space to add some fun personality and go bold. There’s nothing better than wandering into a powder room to discover quirky wallpaper. That is THE BEST surprise when I’m at a party. I think the zebras (#1), waves (#9), and navy palm leaf paper (#7) are my favorites from this one.
01: blush stripes wallpaper // 02: magnetic dino wallpaper // 03: lavender pinstripe wallpaper // 04: mountains wallpaper // 05: cloud wallpaper // 06: coral escher wallpaper // 07: rabbit wallpaper // 08: leopard wallpaper // 09: whale wallpaper // 10: woodland animal wallpaper // 11: blush dot wallpaper //12: bear wallpaper
Another place to insert personality is in a nursery or kid’s room. These sophisticated wallpapers are colorful and sweet, without looking too juvenile. The dino wallpaper (#2) is even magnetic- so the kids can have fun sticking things to the wall (without using damaging tape or nails). I’m also digging the clouds (#5), the woodland animals (#10), and the sweet toile mountain scene (#4).
01: dog wallpaper // 02: gold print wallpaper // 03: blue fern wallpaper // 04: dark palm leaf wallpaper // 05: toile wallpaper // 06: blue gingham wallpaper // 07: gold escher wallpaper // 08: gray plaid wallpaper // 09: crane wallpaper
Alright, you already know my plan is to add wallpaper to my laundry room. I’m telling you right now- I HAVE TO HAVE THE DOGS (#1). There’s a reason I put them in the number one slot. I’m such a dog lover and I’m completely smitten. This is one of the best dog papers I’ve ever seen. I think the ferns (#3) would be beautiful too.
01: navy pattern wallpaper // 02: large floral wallpaper // 03: matchstick wallpaper // 04: gray wallpaper // 05: palm leaf wallpaper // 06: large buffalo check wallpaper // 07: ginkgo leaf wallpaper // 08: dotted wallpaper // 09: blue watercolor wallpaper
Hallways are another one of my favorite spots to install wallpaper (you’ve already seen me do it once). From the above roundup, my top selections include the ginkgo leaf paper (#7), and the large scale neutral buffalo check (#6). Can you imagine that with funky, modern photographic art installed on top of it?
After this post, I’m ready to pull the trigger and buy wallpaper. I seriously want it for every room. I think I need a bigger house or more rooms to renovate. What are your favorites from the roundup? I have to know if they’re the same as mine!
