Lustables: Not Your Parent’s Wallpaper

A renaissance in luxe wallpaper is romancing a whole new generation of homeowners.

My parents hung textured wallpaper in our piano room (a.k.a. “the fancy room” we wee ones were not allowed to enter), in circa 1985. Call me an oracle, but even when I stood under four feet tall I knew that the grey swans would have passed from being “In vogue,” to truly ugly by 1986.

Given my lifelong leanings on the subject of wallpaper, what I’m about to say will shock even my mother, who has seen and heard it all from me: I lust after this wallpaper from Graham & Brown.  The Adorn Collection features glittery, shimmery, metallic embellishments that, at $75 a roll, create a look of luscious decadence without breaking the bank.
It is a glue-on wallpaper, so be sure to choose a fungicide free paste or one that is water based, water soluble or solvent free.
