Paper Popularity




I love wallpaper in moderation. One accent wall can be just enough to add instant personality to a room. Papering part of a wall works too, if you create an architectural border with panel molding. Both of these concepts support the “less is more” theory and alleviates fears of getting tired of something. Another plus - the illusion of seeing just a glimpse of pattern when looking from room to room is always nice.

This subtle modern Romo paper always makes me smile. I am drawn to the shape of the flower, the scale of the design, and the contrast of the sheer metallic against the matt background. I love shine, and there is just enough that the flowers catch the light and pop off the wall - very glam… Funny enough I love it in every color. I have tried it in green in a bedroom and am about to put it in an entry hall in a subtle crème on crème. Also great in blue and brown…

I was watching Sarah’s House one day and I saw it in her dining room. I quickly paused the show for a closer look, before I realized it was the same paper. I see flashes of it now and then on Gossip Girl in Serena’s bedroom. It is modern, fun and pretty popular apparently...

I love this wallpaper. Is it designer only or can anyone buy it?
Thanks.

It is sold to the trade, but if you search online for Romo - Kiku, I am sure you can find a retailer who will sell it to you. Good luck! If that does not pan out let me know.
