The Writing on the Wall: Wallpaper with Words

The Writing on the Wall: Wallpaper with Words

I can't see these wordy wallpapers working for every room in the house, but using them on an accent wall or in a small space could make a statement worth reading.

Of course, you could take the expected route and decorate the library or office with them (or to line the back of a bookcase), but I would also consider using them to paper my half-bathroom. These busy wallcoverings might not be as overwhelming when used on a smaller scale, and hey, if you choose Newsworthy — you'll no longer need reading material in the loo!
