Yesterday, I spent about five hours looking through wallpaper books. I kid you not. Five hours. FIVE.
I really had no idea that it would be so difficult to find a simple chocolate brown damask wallpaper. The options looked abundant online. But the problem is that when I saw them in person, they just weren’t right. Either they had tones of blue running through them, or they had gold metallic stuff here and there, or they were printed all in metallic, or they were outrageously priced. I found maybe two damasks that were somewhat similar to what I had pictured in my mind.
And then I found some other non-damask options.
So here’s the deal. I simply can’t look through wallpaper anymore. I’ve narrowed it down to seven. But I just can’t narrow anymore. Not now, at least. So please give me your input.
First, let me remind you of the look I’m going for–kind of an east coast, casual, country, coastal…. Heck, I don’t know what you’d call it, but you can see more details here.
Now I’ll show you the options. Just keep in mind. FIVE…HOURS. When I had looked through everything there was to look through (at Sherwin Williams and Lowe’s), I couldn’t see straight. So please, don’t judge me if a couple of these are absolutely hideous. 😀
After each option, I’ve included the above photo showing that particular wallpaper. Now of course, I can’t guarantee that they’re to scale, but at least it gives a general idea of what each one will look like.
So here are the options:
I know some of you probably think I’m crazy with that last one. But there’s something about that print that I love. It looks like a vintage linen fabric.
So let me know what you think!
And if you have anything additional thoughts, I’d love to hear them! And just so we’re clear, “no wallpaper” isn’t an option. 😀
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
