As you assemble your plan for decorating your custom-built home, you may be overwhelmed by the fact that there are so many ideas to explore. It helps to remember that the best appointed homes are often a mix of timeless and fashionable. The interesting thing is it’s sometimes hard to tell which is which with particular design choices. Trends nearly always phase out, they also almost always make a comeback. They’ll either return as they were originally or you’ll get an updated, reinterpreted version.

In 2017, one of the hottest comebacks is wallpapers. Due to the breadth of design choices they support, there’s good reason to be excited about this development. If you have no previous experience with this versatile design element, the following post will explain what the allure is all about:

Wallpaper is making a big comeback. Here’s how to choose, use and remove.

Wallpaper is ready for its next act. The polarizing paint alternative and longtime decorating taboo has returned to fashion thanks to ultra-stylish prints, dimensional fabrics, and new materials that make it easy to install and, yes, to remove. Offering more drama than paint, it’s a fun way to transform a room and reflect your personal style without breaking the bank. Some designers even liken it to contemporary art for the mass market.

“It’s a risk,” said Kati Curtis, a designer with offices in New York and Los Angeles. “But, boy, can it pay off.”

What’s caused the big comeback? It’s easy to attribute the sales spike to style bloggers, HGTV and Instagram, but at the core of wallpaper’s new popularity is a hint of rebellion. Read more at The Washington Post…

So you see, if you’re concerned that painting your home will restrict you to one look for years on end and you’re more of the spontaneous type, wallpapers were made for you.

One of the great things about wallpapers is they can be used as much or as little as you want. Another good point is they can do a lot more than make your walls beautiful, as described in the following post:

Fresh Decorating Ideas: Creative Places to Use Wallpaper

One of the most important design trends we’ve seen in the past few years is the return of wallpaper. And these aren’t just the small, fussy patterns you may remember (and perhaps loathe) from the ’80s — these are big, bold florals, geometric patterns, and whimsical designs. And if you want to add a little pattern to your home but aren’t yet ready to commit to a whole wall, there are still plenty of out-of-the-box ways to add a little wallpaper to your space. Here are a few of our favorites.
