The Oughts, meaning the decade leading up to 2011, wallpaper seemed to take a backseat in the design world. Designers and fashionistas alike were very streamlined, seeking simplicity and a cleaner, more contemporary look centered on furniture and art. In more recent years however, wallpapers have been making a huge comeback – and several factors tell us why.

While wallpaper can run more expensive than a paint job, it may save you more money in the end. Focusing a room around its furniture and fine art is of course very luxurious, but can burn the wallet more than using a splendid wallpaper to accent the room. The right wallcovering can add the cozy dimensions and textural feeling that a paint finish simply cannot do, and can even eliminate the need for high-priced artwork and expensive furnishings. When your wallpaper can give your room a bold statement, there is little need for much else.
