Modern wallpaper selections for the Kitchen, Living Room and Bedroom

Recently we've been focused on furniture and decor selections for the spaces of Our Care-Free Home that we have finished renovating.  As part of the project, we decided to update some of the walls in the Kitchen, Living Room and a Bedroom with some mid-century modern inspired wallpaper.

After a trip to International Market Square with our interior designer Cy Winship, we came home with about a hundred cool, funky wall paper samples.  After looking them all over, taping them up on the walls and getting feedback from family and friends, we finally made some selections.  Here are the ones that made the cut!
Weitzner "Newsworthy" (for Living Room)
Sanderson "Dandelion Clocks" (for Bedroom)

Innovations Basics+ - "Linen" (for Kitchen)
Orla Kiely - "Multi Stem" (for Hallways)
When we purchased the home, most of the walls were still covered in the original grass cloth wallpaper, which had seen a lot of wear over the years and was showing its age.  While it was definitely era-appropriate, there was so much of it throughout the house that it felt like we were living in a tiki bar.  It had to go!

We're anxiously awaiting the finished results!  We'll be posting some before and after photos of the Living Room, Kitchen, Hallways and Bedrooms with their new modern wallpaper soon!


  1. This is a great article and very informative. We had a new house built last year and it turned out great. I really wanted to do something different so my neighbor told me to learn more about Custom Smart Homes because you can have them customized to your liking. They are also very good for the environment. It took a long time for my wife and I to find hard wood flooring and wallpaper that we both liked and fit with the floor plans. After a long search we finally found a design. I can see how people think it is hard to pick out hard wood.

  2. For me, the first thing that I consider when choosing a wallpaper is the pattern and color but, I respect a personal and technical reasons when doing so. Also, I consider the place that I am going to hang the wallpaper because weather and humidity play a big role. You can read more wallpaper ideas from here.
