My dear friend, Sam Klein of
Wallpaper is such a personal choice and a big commitment. I love the idea of a totally custom option when nothing else feels right for a space! With that said, I will hand the mic to Sam and let her tell you all about her big project!
“After buying a house two years ago, I’ve moved slowly through each room to try and make them feel like my own. The dining room is definitely one of the last to be fixed up, partially because it felt easy to ignore. We have a table in our kitchen nook, so why not just throw an extra couch and some art in the dining room and call it a day? Two years later, my husband and I decided it was time to get our dining room in order! I started figuring out where the table would go, our rug, credenza, plants, etc., but I knew something was missing. I really wanted to put wallpaper on one of our curved walls and I knew it had to be a showstopper.
As an obsessive vintage shopper (I run the marketplace
She scanned the dress print and was able to get me a beautiful and clean image in days. I then uploaded my design to
The next step was measuring the height and width of my wall exactly. Not too hard except for the fact that I had to decide where I wanted the wallpaper to stop since our ceiling is curved. After picking the size and doing all my measurements, I ordered my wallpaper and had it in under two weeks. Since the wallpaper shows up in segments that need to be aligned perfectly, I decided not to tempt fate and hired a professional to install it. Absolutely no regrets there because it looks flawless!”
Thank you so much for sharing, Sam! I’m so inspired by this and will definitely be using this method at some point in the future! xx – Elsie
