Modern Farmhouse Design Trend: Wallpaper
One design trend I never thought I'd be into? Wallpaper. It evoked memories of 80's and 90's era floor to ceiling rooms covered in floral disasters. That is until the interior design world, gave it a new life. Kyle's still on the fence with this one, but I'm completely enamored by on trend wallpaper.
If you're on the fence too, let me plead my case. Think of wallpaper as a way to accent a wall, give a bit of boldness to the back of a bookcase, or give a powder room a statement. As a lover of pattern, I think it's wonderful in small doses! Better yet, now many removable wallpapers are popular too, making it totally non-committal if you're renting or want to change up the space later.
We spotted a Rifle Paper Co. pineapple wallpaper in one of the Parade of Homes bathrooms and I've been obsessing over it ever since. They also have the same pineapple print wallpaper at Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters in San Fran if you're ever there!
My girl, Joanna Gaines, just introduced a new wallpaper line for Magnolia Home that screams modern farmhouse. I found a ton of great resources if you want to get this look for your home - and started saving so many that I've categorized them by (anything-but-basic) black & white, beautiful botanicals, and bohemian.
Black & white is probably one of the simplest forays into wallpaper. My top pick is the watercolor buffalo plaid pattern. I can totally picture it in a powder room paired with minimalist white tile and a modern vanity.
A little goes a long way with botanical prints. I think the key to making this feel fresh and not overly vintage is to choose a watercolor style floral or a folksy style print in a pop color. That peony print is oh-so-sweet. I can envision this lining the back of a bookcase.
One of the boldest (& most fun) takes on wallpaper are the patterns with a modern bohemian feel. The indigo ombre is one of the most striking in a large scale. It would make an incredible accent wall in a bedroom!
What's your opinion on the wallpaper design trend? Would you ever consider putting it in your home - and if so, what space?
