Be Brave

Wallpaper has been making a coming back for a few years and its not the same wallpaper our parents were using. Say good-bye to small flowers and ivy or god forbid borders. The patterns are much more bold and the graphics are pretty colorful and fun. Everyone I tell that wallpaper is making a comeback immediately says to me, I will never wallpaper a room again!

The great thing about wallpaper this time around though is that you don't have to do an entire room you can do an accent wall or a bookshelf or the top of a table. I ran across this cool product called Grippiks that is already designed to fit your Ikea furniture you said you were only going to keep for a year or two (its been 5) before you bought grown up furniture. What's a better place to throw on some color and pattern but a cheap piece of furniture you planned on getting rid of anyways?

Of course you don't need to buy this product you can easily use wallpaper, wrapping paper or scrap book paper. I don't think it matters what you use it just matters you start putting some pop into your room and banish the beige!
