Wallpaper has come a long way and it is still one of the best ways to add character, glamour and finesse to your walls.  You can wallpaper an entire room or use it to accent just one wall.  Wallpaper can be used to enliven bookshelves and furniture.  Textured, glossy, shimmering or novelty, the variety of wallpaper available makes it the ideal decorating tool.

Wallpaper is not just for walls, either.  Use it to accent painted furniture or to add punch to bookshelves.  If you love a particular wallpaper but don’t want to invest in covering an entire wall, buy a small section and have it framed for instant art.  Cover wood or fabric canvases with wallpaper and create a unique wall display.
