The Best, Most Wow-Worthy Wallpaper Before and Afters We Saw This Year
Wallpaper—especially the old school, paste-it-up kind—can be both an investment and a time commitment. So if you’re putting in the money and the work, you might as well have fun with your wallpaper, right? We think so, and these Apartment Therapy readers did, too. Below, some of our favorite spaces covered in vibrant wallpaper.
A floral-fab bathroom
A surprise-inside closet
Hanging bold wallpaper in a boring coat closet is one of our favorite ideas. The tropical vibes of this wallpaper by Divine Savages will remind you of warmer days when hanging up your winter coat.
A bold basement accent wall
Basements tend to be pretty blah—but not this one, which has a pink and green removable wallpaper accent wall that’s to die for. “Since I am working as an interior designer and always looking for new things to recommend to my clients and have also personally already played with the idea of trying something other than paint, I discovered the magic of removable wallpaper,” Christin of Earthly Urban Design says. “And when I came across this lush botanical print, I knew it would be a perfect match to the rest of our home.”
A whimsical navy-and-blush office
A geometric patterned bathroom
A closet with a hint of the tropics
Here’s another tropical closet that we want in our own homes stat. Once again, removable wallpaper is the star. This palm leaf wallpaper is from Carter + Main. “I love that when I have guests over, I can take their coat and not quickly have to shut my coat closet door,” homeowner Heather Benazzi says. “It’s now a conversation piece and lovely to look at.”
