From formal rooms and nurseries to refurbished furniture, it’s easy to incorporate wallpaper into every home, but have you ever considered why statement wallpaper makes such an impact? We’ll give you one hint: Think big! We’ve outlined our top tips to help you create large scale wallpaper designs for your Spoonflower shop, a growing trend in the Marketplace.
When the style trends for 2018 were announced by the leaders of the home décor industry, it was no surprise to see wallpaper making the list…again. Over the past few years we have grown to love wallpaper as a quick and easy way to refresh a room. With easy application and even easier removal, our home- and apartment-friendly wallpaper gives you the best of both worlds. Will 2018 be the year you finally complete the home makeover of your dreams? Find inspiration for your walls—and beyond—from these 15 wallpaper projects that have caught our eye.
It’s no secret the Spoonflower team is comprised of talented makers pursuing their personal passions outside of the office. During the day they might be busy shipping orders, helping customers or dreaming up the newest fabric to include in our lineup, but by night, they’re hard at work in their studios passionately producing new products for the small businesses they’ve built from the ground up. Today we’re excited to welcome one of these makers and small business owners, operations team member and creator of Pink Moon Ceramics, Jenna Leitner. The first time we saw how Jenna incorporated Spoonflower’s Smooth Wallpaper in her product photography, we knew we had to learn more. If you’re a maker looking for an easy (and affordable) way to highlight your work, Jenna’s photography hack could be the answer you’re looking for!
Whoever said wallpaper was meant just for your walls never met the Spoonflower community. Removable, renter-friendly wallpaper offers the freedom to use your wallpaper in unexpected places like your laptop, desk, bathroom drawers and even your stairs. When it comes to stairs, you come and go on them every day, so why not brighten your way!
With the smooth, water-activated option, your project is wallpaper paste free and the woven, peel & stick wallpaper is ready for install once the paper backing has been removed. It’s just that easy! See some of our favorite wallpapered stair projects and find out how you can recreate these looks using designs from the Spoonflower Marketplace.
1. We can’t help but stare at this playful combination of bold colors and geometric prints.
Some projects are born of inspiration; some are born of necessity. I encountered the latter when some cough syrup spilled in a bathroom drawer, and it was not about to scrub off the cheap off-white liner. And then I realized that cheap off-white drawer liner is not really a vibe I want in my space—so why not turn lemons into lemonade?
Spoonflower’s Smooth wallpaper in this elegant Paeonia in Coral and Mint on Navy design by willowlanetextiles saved the day. You could easily use Woven wallpaper and skip step 4. This is the perfect Saturday afternoon project: I was done with the whole thing in under an hour and thrilled with the results!
