The Guest Room // The Wallpaper

Guest Room-HGTV Home:SherwinWilliams-1-Design Crush


I’ve never been big on wallpaper. Most of it just brings back awful memories of the two walls of my childhood bedroom that were plastered with some sort of navajo print. That I picked out. To go with the other two walls that were painted peach. PEACH! So you can see why I’ve steered clear for so long.

But over the past few years I’ve noticed a change in the tides. Wallpaper prints that I actually like, some of which that have been designed by artists I respect and admire. So when it came to the guest room I thought, well, it’s now or never.

So I started searching out wallpaper options and fell for something I never would have expected. This detailed pattern from HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams in a deep, dark navy blue overlaid with an almost metallic grey print – it’s the 441-5610 design and is a part of their Coastal Cool collection. The wallpaper is a thick and heavy quality paper, which added a little bit of a challenge to the actual hanging but gave us such a beautiful result. And because of the detail it’s virtually impossible to see the seams. I’m so happy with the end result, and so thankful for the help of my friend Tab who did most of the dirty work because this is most definitely a two-person job.

What’s your stance on wallpaper?

    I thought I was totally anti-wallpaper, until I saw this one! It looks amazingly detailed and delicate without being busy. And it looks fantastic with the paint color you chose!

    I’ve always though wallpaper was disgusting and gross and why would anyone do that when there’s paint? But wow!! I guess it depends totally on the print and the brand. This is just lovely.

    Gotta love a beautiful paper that hides the seams!! Exactly why wallpaper scares me: seams.

    After having teddy-bears-riding-bikes wallpaper growing up and well into my teenage years, you’d think I’d be against the stuff. I’m not. I love it so much and I can’t wait to have a house to wallpaper something.

    I do not blame you for avoiding wallpaper for so long. My grandmother had some ugly brown and green colored wallpaper in her kitchen that I could not stand. However, the designs coming out now are nothing like they used to be. If you do the prep work correctly, the paper comes right now when you want to change it out.
