Trellis, trellis, trellis...

Wallpapers have come a long way since the old granny print days. Today, they offer a wide variety of designs that just make you dream about a room revamp! There are so many fun designs to pick from whether floral, geometric, scenic or abstract. I think it is safe to say that there is a wallpaper for everyone out there now!

I love the mix of the patterned wallpaper and the fun arrangements of photo frames.

 Jill Malek's line of wallpapers made me swoon. Although it would not work in our home, I can not help but stare.

Jordan, from Oh Happy Day, used Sherwin Williams' EasyChange wallpaper in her foyer. The wallpaper peels right off once you are done with it. Read her post if you are interested on how it works. I love how this pattern looked in her foyer. If it wasn't so costly This would be up on my living room wall right now. 

I wanted something that could give me the wallpaper look without the cost. I came across wall stencils that many bloggers have been talking about. I ordered this stencil from Cutting Edge Design:
Trellis Allover Stencil

I am not done painting my living room yet, but once I am done I shall give a full post of my trials and the overall result. You got to see a bit of my wall in my last post. Here is another sneak peak:
I love how my wall looks with the beautiful mirror my mom got me as a house warming gift.

I can't help but step back from painting to admire my walls' progress. It went from blah to whoa! It adds character to the room but it is not loud. I also love how nicely it meshes with other patterns. The pattern inspired me to make some invitations based on the trellis design. I love how fun and sophisticated the pattern is, it looks just as good on paper! I am going assemble a sample of each this weekend. So, stay tuned for my trellis suite!

    1. Thank you! I have been loving how it looks so far, unfortunately I am not done yet, close though! I haven't been able to make much progress while fasting. Pictures will be up soon of the finished product so stay tuned :). I think it would definitely be appropriate for the bedroom. I have seen it done online. Here are a couple of examples:

      Most people just do an accent wall so it would not get too busy, but it is up to you for how much you do
