Oprah said "wallpapers are back" it has been the latest hip thing on the interior decorating scene. I haven't really given much thought to wallpapering since I got used to painted walls. But I've been hopping and checking out interior design and home decor sites and it made me want to bring colors to my walls.

Wallpapers now have sharper images and improved color resolutions because of the advancements in technology so expect more designs that would suit every lifestyle. Here's some easy on the pocket, wallpaper innovations guaranteed to bring color in your walls without breaking your bank balance.

  • Easy Hang Wallpaper - This is a great option for renters and can be reused. Installing non-woven wall coverings can be faster than painting, which requires preparing the wall surface (wallpapers always hide a myriad of blemishes), applying primer and at least two coats of paint. Non-woven wall coverings adhere to walls with magnet-force, yet are easily re-positionable. Easy-hang wallpapers are usually made from a blend of natural and synthetic fibers found in common household products like tea bags and coffee filters, non-woven are tear-resistant during installation and removal.
  • Natural Textures (eco-friendly) - wallpapers such as naturally textured sea grass, bamboo, grasscloth, silk, burlap and jute -- but only for the high-end of the market. Recent technological advances have made them both far more affordable and colorful. Natural wall coverings are now available in fashion-forward peacock blue, silver, gold, kiwi and violet.
  • Peel-and-Stick - this peel-and-stick technology sticks to walls only as long as you want with no residue; and can be repositioned, removed and reused on any flat surface. Perfect for children and teens with changing tastes and college students living in dorm rooms, many peel-and-stick wallpapers also have decidedly grown-up appeal, including dramatic damasks, hip silhouetted blooms and pop-art flowers. These non-toxic, amazingly affordable wall appliqu├ęs can transform even the smallest bathrooms, bedrooms, laundry rooms and alcoves.
  • Digital Printing - Specialty limited-edition murals in painterly or photo-realistic styles; scenes of romantic, faraway places; and amazingly realistic nature scenes pack a powerful visual punch and take the place of costly artwork. Thanks to new digital printing technologies, wallpaper companies now offer detailed murals that no one ever tires of viewing.
This is making me so excited and itching to try wallpapering our daughter's room.. Well, I have to hold myself back till we move to our new place. Only a month to go and I could go crazy decorating again..
