Not You're Grandma's Wallpaper

Wallpaper has gotten a bad rap in recent years. I would think manly because when most people think of wallpaper images like this come to mind:

Lucky for us wallcovering and wallpaper design has come a long way and is making a come back in decor. While perusing the internet I came across this company; Spoonflower

It's a website that lets you design your own wallpaper, wall decals and custom printed fabric! You just upload an image and Spoonflower will transform it into a repeating pattern for wallpaper. It's pretty affordable and fun. You can also turn your images into vinyl wall decals to use as you see fit!

The cool thing is that the wallpaper is removable and environmentally friendly too! The paper is PVC free, the ink is non toxic, and the water based adhesive is removable so it's perfect for apartment dwellers and renters (me!). Yay for being green!

Once you have your design all laid out you can upload it into a room view to see how it looks on the wall.

Something else cool about this site- you can upload your design and have it voted on in their weekly design contests. Cool!

If you're having a mental block or just want to take look around Spoonflower also has a huge library of ready made patterns to choose from.

Spoonflower also has a blog where they share fun projects and have contests where you can win vinyl decals and rolls of wallpaper.

*Just a note- I haven't been compensated in any way for this post. I just came across a cool website and wanted to share it with you!*

These are nice wall decals, and intelligently placed as well.
