Nursery Wallpaper

I am mildly obsessed with wallpaper. My favorite room in my house is my grasscloth-covered powder room that is the size of a closet. In my opinion, nothing makes a bolder statement in a room than creating a look on the walls via paint or paper. It encompasses the room and is the backbone to the overall look and feel. Here are some ways to use nursery wallpaper to get the look you want.

There are so many gorgeous feminine toile-like prints that girls can really grow with. To me, this wallpaper gives the room an elegant and luxurious Old English feel.

In the end, the husband had to step in and decided on a plain color for the walls. Good thing I love the color he chose.
