Roundup: Metallic Wallpaper


No longer just for Grandma’s guest bath, the metallic wallpaper trend continues to remain on the upswing with vintage retailers offering wider selections than ever and contemporary designers who are reinterpreting these fabulous foils.

This month, as we explore color in the home, we take a closer look at wall coverings - in particular, metallics. Why not up the luxe-factor of your bedroom with a flashy accent wall, or even paper the inside of that old curio cabinet with a glamorous Florence Broadhurst pattern?
