Buy Wallpaper. Keep Your Limbs.

Ha! How's that for a post title? It's true that wallpaper can be very pricey, especially if you're planning to paper a large room. Splurging on a high end wallpaper can look really beautiful though, so you may decide that it's worth it (and you may decide to use it in a powder room to cut down on cost). There are some good options out there if you decide against the splurge however. 

I've been pretty impressed with what I've found at places like Home Depot and Lowes. Here's a little round up for you with papers from Home Depot ranging in price from $35-$85/roll. These can all be ordered through Home Depot (Canada). If you're in the U.S. there are even more options available to you. These papers have that champagne look on a beer can budget! (Borrowed that from you, Barbara.) Thankfully, they won't cost you an arm and a leg. 

First up, some dark & moody options (my favourites). 

1. Black and Gold Metallic Marble Wallpaper by the Wallpaper Company $45/roll
2. Black and Tan Plaid by the Wallpaper Company $35/roll
3. Superfresco Easy Cinema Wallpaper $60/roll
4. Chocolate Bold Stripe by Kelly Hoppen $85/roll
5. Animal Print by The Wallpaper Company $35/roll

And a few on the "lighter" side. 

1. Tattoo by Kelly Hoppen $85/roll
2. Fabulous by Julien MacDonald $85/roll
3. Drama Traviata Beige $69/roll
4. Crowns & Coronets by Graham and Brown $70/roll
5. Leaf and Flower Trail by the Wallpaper Company $45/roll

Lowes also carries some nice paper, but I didn't do a round up. You can visit their site to have a look, but unfortunately, most of the really good options aren't available to us here in Canada. It's worth checking out if you're in the U.S. though.

Did you have a favourite? 

It's weekend time, y'all! Enjoy.

  1. Good Morning Sarah,
    I have 2 favorites...#'s 2 & 5. As you know it would depend on the room...I can see myself with #2 in my bedroom and #5 in a dining room. When we lived in DC we rented a wonderful 3 story townhouse. It was full of bathrooms! I had the luxury of a powder room off the front was mine alone and quite feminine...It would have loved #4 CROWNS paper! Have a great weekend.


I love hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time to comment!
