(Updated 2024!) Home Wallpaper Tour Plus a Few I Am Loving Right Now

Have you given in to the temptation that is…wallpaper? If not, maybe I can convince you to take a walk on the wild side. The good news? This ain’t your mama’s (or grandma’s) plastered-on stuff. Even the “permanent” is pretty easily removed these days.

Let me show you what I’ve got in my home, my honest thoughts on each, and what I’m dreaming of adding to the collection.

The Entryway

This is my most requested link to date. “Where’s that wallpaper from?!” they ask. This is still one of my favorites. Although I don’t think it quite matches what my style is evolving into…I still really enjoy it in the little nook that is my entryway.

  1. Juniper Forest by Rifle Paper Co. ($1.84/sq. ft)

Application, Durability, Aesthetic 9/10

This was my first attempt at peel and stick wallpaper. I did end up with a few wrinkles and bubbles but it honestly doesn’t matter because the black in the wallpaper hides the imperfections very well. This is a very thick, high quality material, so I did not run into any tearing of the paper during application. If you love this print like I do, I highly recommend it.

The Office

2. NextWall Morris Flower Botanical Peel and Stick Wallpaper ($0.87/sq. ft)

Application, Durability, Aesthetic 7/10

I’d be lying if I said this paper was the same quality as the Rifle Paper Co. stuff…but it did it’s job! This one is also peel and stick so it was pretty easy to apply. The wall I applied it to was textured, so I wasn’t sure how that would go. Fortunately, it went well, and I only had one, tiny rip as I applied it over the semi-textured wall. Overall, I am happy with the product and would recommend this one for the price, as well!

3. Chesapeake Cyrus Black Floral Wallpaper ($1.14/sq. ft)

Application, Durability, Aesthetic 6/10

I am not a professional. I do think a professional could apply this much better than me. That being said, there are pros and cons to this paper. The pros being that because it is pasted wallpaper, it does look a little more expensive than peel and stick. The texture on it is beautiful and creates dimension that makes it look a little more high-end. The cons are mainly that it is quite the learning curve if you have never applied pasted wallpaper before. Another con is that because the background is white, you can see the seam where the panels come together. That could be an installer error…but even in the places where I feel it was installed with as little overlap as possible, there is still a visible lip. I don’t notice it now as much as I did right after the application, but I do think it’s worth noting. Something to keep in mind if you are installing white wallpaper.

Now, here I am dreaming up my next wallpaper project…here’s a look at some of my current favorites in the wallpaper realm. Will I use one of these in my next project? Hmmm…stay tuned to find out.

4. Lily Blue Wallpaper ($4/sq. ft)

Application, Durability, Aesthetic 10/10

New to wallpapering? Start Here. Photowall Sweden prints their wallpaper based on your custom order. There is no question where you need to cut the paper to fit your space. The cut lines are printed on the paper for you! Not only that, the quality of this paper is unmatched!

Basement Stairwell

5. Chesapeake Twain Plaid Wallpaper ($0.92/ sq. ft)

Application, Durability, Aesthetic 6/10

I used this wallpaper in my $0 Budget Basement Stairwell Makeover. This was a roll of wallpaper I had ordered a year prior and didn’t have a use for. For the price, less than $1 per square foot, it is a good quality paper! I used it on extremely uneven walls and I think it turned out great! It was trickier to apply so this one probably isn’t the best for beginners.


6. York x Rifle Paper Co. Hydrangea in Beige ($1.98/sq. ft)

Application, Durability, Aesthetic 9/10

This is another amazing paper. I have always had great applications while using anything by York Wallcoverings. This is a pasted wallpaper, meaning you have to mix up wallpaper paste and apply it to the wall or paper before putting it on the wall. It is heavy-duty and durable, so it should not rip easily during the application process.
