It’s Baaack…Wonderful Wallpaper

Over the next few months, we’ll share some of her thoughts with you. Here’s our second installment.


Wallpaper is back…big time; according to Summer Baltzer, interior designer and host of HGTV’s Design on Dime and TLC’s Unhinged.

“Wallpaper is back and it can add very high drama to your rooms,” says Baltzer. “But, that doesn’t mean it has to be used on all the walls of a room. It can be used to highlight one wall or it can be used as a ceiling accent. There are so many amazing textures and designs out there.”

These “amazing textures and designs” include grass cloth in vibrant colors, wallpaper with embedded Swarovski crystals, bark cloth, rice paper, hand-drawn floral and geometric patterns, high gloss and matte finishes, metallic sheens, optical illusions, and embossed, paintable papers, just to name a few.

What’s more, unlike the paper-backed, hard-to-apply and remove wallpapers of the past, wallpapers available today are much easier to work with, especially the new non-woven wall coverings that adhere easily and are repositionable, too.  They are also easy to remove so you can explore your creative side without much risk. So, why not add some drama, texture, and fun to your rooms with wallpaper?
