Wallpaper has come a long way. To me, it used to come w/ a tacky connotation….the busy flower type that you would usually find in grandma’s kitchen. The ones that make you dizzy after 5 secs of glancing at them.
Nowadays, wallpaper designs come in many stylish patterns. The kinds that would transform your house to one of luxury in a matter of mins (or days) depending how fast you can install them. I am currently loving the damask wallpaper patterns.
As you may already know, I am currently obsessed w/ the Parisian look and to me, nothing spells vintage Parisian luxury like damask wallpaper (and of course an awesome French Provincial Chair). Below is a FAB combo of the two. Image source here.
And then there are the Flocked Velvet kind that has a velvet texture. Talk about super luxurious! As seen below, image source here.
I am DYING to have a wall of damask pattern in our home. Maybe for an accent wall in the bathroom (as seen below)?

More desperately, I want a damask accent wall in our bedroom, behind the white silk headboard. I think this will be the PERFECT addition to our bedroom!
The goal is to convince the husband that it’s well worth it. He’s had a bad experience taking off wallpaper in the past thus the reluctancy. However, if we have a gorgeous wall of damask pattern, I can’t imagine having to remove it. EVER. Yes, sometimes I have a mind of a child.
Actually, there are some logic behind this want (turning into a NEED soon!) of mine. We already have some damask decor pieces in our bedroom so a damask wall will bring it all together!
Below are some inspiration pictures of damask wallpapers in the bedroom. Image source here.
I do think, however, that covering all walls w/ this pattern may be a little overwhelming to the eye. Just an accent wall would be perfect for me. I wish that my wish can come true. (I’m sending this post over to my husband!)
Do you have wallpaper in your home? If not, would you consider a damask pattern? Please share!
