Wallpaper is still a wonderful decorating tool.  These looks illustrate how wallpaper brings an element to design that no other medium does.  Used judiciously, not covering every surface like we did in the 80's and 90's, it can introduce pattern and color as well as set the tone and define a motif for a room.  I never stopped completely using wallpaper in my work and I am really excited about the new looks out there.  New and improved substrates make hanging and stripping easy, but my advice is to let a professional do it if possible.  Next time you are surfing design sites or reading magazines, look closely.  Wallpaper is making a comeback.

This wallpaper is beautiful! You are right...The designs of these wallpapers are not like either of my Grandmother's!

By the way, with your sophisticated taste, I think that you should venture to give a name for my mannequin. I am interested to see what you would have in mind!
Hope you are having a good day!

Thank you for reading, Amy!
Mandy, I came over and saw all the beautiful names already suggested and got intimidated. I may try it,though.
