My Dining Room Wallpaper!

Just thought I would show a few snapshots of my new dining room wall!
I'm so excited to finally have wallpaper done in my own house! Any designers out there will know what a huge decision it is when it's going in your own house...I thought I would never make a decision.


A close-up! I went for quite a simple print in the end, in black and cream which matches the kitchen! I happen to be a big botanical print fan so thought I couldn't go too wrong with this.

I can't believe how much of a difference it has made to the feel of the room! I may have a new addiction! Tracey xx

This paper is gorgeous! I've been bitten by the wallpaper bug too. Now that we've done one room, I want to do more! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!

Looks great Tracey! Love the print, just gorgeous. Oh, and look at your ceilings - they look exactly like mine (now that mine have been painted, of course!) I'd love to see the rest of your beautiful room sometime if you'd share the pics, it looks lovely. K xx

Love the wallpaper and the colour scheme. You were brave and it has really paid off!

OH! Yes, wallpaper covers so many imperfections and also ties the rooms together, I sold wall paper for Years, Have seen many botched jobs also. Get a good professional paperhanger..It can git a room a real lift.

What a stunning paper, love it!
I wish the wallpapers I like weren't so jolly expensive. Maybe I could start a new trend and do wide stripes in wallpaper, that way I'd use half as much,lol.

Isn't it funny how making a decision for yourself seems to be an impossible task, yet for a client you can do it within a second?!? It look amazing, now I want more pics when the room is completed. Have a wonderful day!! Mel

Hi Tracey,

Thanks for your kind comments over at my spot on the web... love that wallpaper - very subtle and stylish - is this the room for your black chairs? They'd look divine.

Love your wallpaper choice, it looks gorgeous. I know what you mean about your own home. I'm still studying interior design but .... my walls are all white (also for resale purposes)! I am determined to put some wallpaper into our next home - thanks for the inspiration. Have a good weekend. Michelle

avant garde said...

such a great choice. i was just saying to a potential client (who has every single wall in his house painted the exact same color, oh my) that perhaps even papering ONE wall would make such a huge difference in each room. i have him thinking anyway! wallpaper has made a very cool come back :) love what you did!!

I don't use wallpaper in walls of my dining room. But after seeing your wall paper. I think I need to renovate my dining room and put wallpapers in all walls.
