I can still remember the wallpaper (opens in new tab) in the foyer of my childhood home: a marvelous yellow-and-blue floral wallpaper, so captivating it rarely went unnoticed, and every guest gushed over it. So much so that when it came to my bedroom decor? I —being a young child with exceptional taste — seemingly demanded (daily), a similar intricate hand-drawn floral arrangement be installed to the borders of my bedroom walls immediately. 

Yes, excellent taste dates back decades, and fast-forward present-day? Nothing has changed —my affection for wallpaper.

When it comes to securing a bold backdrop in a non-committal way, wallpaper is your best friend. The easy-to-use adhesive comes available in a variety of designs, prints, and shades.
