A few months ago, I wrote about the wallpaper game and how if you haven’t hopped on board the wallpaper train, you needed to purchase a ticket, ASAP.
Wallpaper can be such a game-changer in a room. Maybe you have a room that you stare at and feel like it just needs a little extra something. You might want to check out some wallpaper!
Did you know that Target sells wallpaper?! I have browsed Target’s wallpaper section before and been “mehhh” on it, until recently! They have upped their game, big time!
I found a few that I really liked and LOVED the price points. Because that can be the major problem with wallpaper. It can be so darn expensive! But that’s what you get crafty.
You wallpaper only one wall, rather than the entire room. You wallpaper an entire room, but it needs to be smaller space. You frame large swatches of wallpaper in really big, ornate frames and it immediately changes the look of your room.
This is the Antheron Floral Peel & Stick Reusable Wallpaper from the Opalhouse brand at Target. I just love the fun pops of color for a little girls room!
Just another bright blue wallpaper that I stashed in my wishlist. This is the Cadiz Medallion print from Opalhouse. It’s a little brighter than the wallpaper color my friend Alicia at Our Vintage Nest used in her guest room, but it’s a similar pattern and idea. I love this to be used in a pantry to brighten it up, a laundry room, or like Alicia did in a guest room.
This Chasseur Stripe print from Opalhouse reminds me of a print my mom used to have on SOMETHING in our home on Elm Street in Sedan growing up. I just can’t remember what it was! Does that happen to anyone else?!
I really love this Florida Dilly print and I believe that’s because it’s probably the most subtle of all of the wallpapers I’ve shown you! This would be great in a smaller space – the fact that this is mostly white with just a little color will make the space feel larger than it actually is, rather than doing the reverse – lots of color and little white.
This is the same print as the Cadiz Medallion above, but in beige, which again, might be a nice option for those that are a little more neutral! I love this one because it allows you to bring in any color you want in other spots – pillows, duvets, chairs, blankets, etc.
And last but not least, I fell in love with this Pink Paisley print by Opalhouse and went a little crazy!
I decided to take this print and design a young girl’s room. Or a room for Sloane someday. It’s definitely a more ‘grown up’ room, but there are lots of ways to make it younger and transition it to ‘grown up’!
Here are links to all of the above:
- Pottery Barn Teen Bean Bag
This was definitely a way to keep the room younger and good spot to hunker down and read… or listen to music… or watch YouTube on your phone. 🙂
- Saguenay Nightstand
I found this beauty on Wayfair. I LOVE spindles… they were on the kids crib (our fabulous crib that survived three babies) and when Tess moves up to a big girl bed, she will have a Jenny Lind spindle bed. They can’t get me away from it!
- H&M Cotton Poplin Duvet Set
I’m not sure if you all know about H&M having a home section, but if you’ve never been to one, you must go! The prices are amazing and they have some really great stuff! These duvets are perfect for this room – you don’t want something with a big bold pattern on the bed since it will be leaning up against this big patterned wall. I’d do white sheets with this light pink duvet and maybe a few fun pillows!
- Stone & Beam Delano Nailhead Full/Queen Headboard
When we moved to our new home in Bentonville, I did LOTS of online hunting for a new bed. I knew what I wanted, but knew what I didn’t want to spend. We found a headboard on Amazon with great reviews and for less than $200… and it has been AMAZING. This version is a queen (ours was a king), but still gets great reviews and is $180. You can’t beat the quality and this is definitely a bed that will age well!
- Pom Tassel Curtain
I love a good pom pom curtain and again, this is a cute and classic style that will grow with her age.
- Berwick Chest
We had to get a new dresser when we moved to Chicago and again, it took me awhile to figure out what I wanted (for what I wanted to spend). I found this one and really loved it, but knew I needed something that also would be able to be used by us or a kid in the future. I love it in this room – I think the color of the wood really blends in with everything nicely!
- No Nails Pin Board
Every kid needs a pin board in their room to hang up all of the random stuff you think you need to keep… pictures, medals, drawings, old flowers. You know… think back to your childhood and the things you kept! 🙂 This one from Pottery Barn Teen in chambray will be a nice backdrop for a variety of trinkets!
- IKEA Picture Ledges
You guys… I have used these in the kids rooms since Bentonville. And they are the cheapest and most useful things in their rooms – besides their beds! They house TONS of books and I feel that they will continue to house TONS of books for years to come! And later… they can transition to holding tons of framed pictures!
- Pink Paisley Wallpaper – Opalhouse – Target
The shining star and focal point of the room! I love this wallpaper!
- Pink Flamingo Lamp
Because I’ve got to give the girl something… and she has a love for flamingoes! 🙂
- Wellston Carved Full Length Mirror
I’d take two of these! The details on the edge of this mirror are so pretty. I’d just lean this up against a wall and let it be!
So I’m just going to tuck this away for a bit… until the day comes that I need to put it to use!
If you ever are in a design rut and need a little assistance, I would love to help! This is my version of fun. As is organizing. And cleaning.
I can hear my mother right now, “I don’t know who she belongs to, it’s certainly not me!” 🙂
