Dining room by Sarah Richardson

Ooh...such a pretty room.

I've seen a lot of wallpapers that I really love over the past several years. Especially some of the almost Audubon-inspired ones. They are usually prohibitively expensive, and my fear is that they could still easily look dated in a few years. Like the way some of those late eighties early nineties florals in kitchens can look now.

How would you go about picking one? Go with something less expensive (and usually less fun), so easier to justify changing in a few years,
or go with the $$$ per roll and plan on keeping it for the next 10-20 years?

Megan, I agree that wallpapers can look dated pretty fast. I would say that if you go with a bold print, expect your wallpaper to be "out of style" within the next 10 years. So, if you are looking for a budget friendly way to get a pattern on the wall that can easily be changed in 10 years, consider stencils. They usually cost around $25 for the stencil and then you just have to buy some paint. Of course, if you are good at free-handing, you could paint the pattern on the wall yourself. :)

May I PLEASE have this dining room?! I really like the colors. :-)

Sarah Richardson has always been one of my favorites. This room is definitely not my style, but her use of pattern still amazes me :)
