The comeback. The powerful return of wallpaper. An absolute game changer. I know, you lived through the hay day of wallpaper already and you’re having a difficult time embracing it’s return.

Maybe not in the same house, but take your pick. Wallpaper is having a moment.

And for the moment, consider using wallpaper in the most unexpected way, on the ceiling.
