Wallpaper: Yes or No?

Wallpaper has comeback but it's not your grandmother's wallpaper that we're seeing now. It's fresh, modern, and classic and I am on the hunt for the perfect roll.

I've been reading through "Domino, the book of decorating" and I came across an ideal way of resolving my blank dining room wall issue. Framed wall paper! I was married to the idea the minute I saw an example in the book.

Here's the lowdown on the blank dining room wall situation: We have this ginormous wall behind our dining table (lengthwise) and it just cries out for some kind of treatment (shelving, artwork, etc.). The problem is/was, I didn't fall in love with any of the choices that we had thought of...until now. It is definitely getting some fancy schmancy chinoiserie wallpaper, because I think that is exactly what the room needs, some quiet drama.

If you're not thoroughly convinced check out the images below and just try telling me that a part of you doesn't want some kind of wallpaper treatment in your home.

This is exactly what I have in mind for the dining room!

If adding drama to your home is a scary thought, then start out in a smaller room like the powder room. That way it's confined to one area but still makes a statement.

Make sure to keep the rest of your pieces solid and simple so that it doesn't compete with the wallpaper as seen in this photo.

An otherwise bland wall is now a statement wall with the framed wallpaper.

The paneling creates the illusion of windows - makes you feel like you are looking out into a garden.

"The strawberries taste like strawberries, and the snozzberries taste like snozzberries." Well, it's not exactly what Willy Wonka had but close enough. Flavor League's got scratch & sniff wallpaper in a Fruit Cocktail Collection consisting of Cherry, Banana, and Tutti Frutti to get your noses all a twitching with joy.

Had to throw this one in the mix since it's so out-there. Would you get scratch & sniff wallpaper?
