"A bold wallpaper never hurt anybody."

If you've followed me for a while, you know that I am no stranger to a fun wallpaper; so I was super excited to get to install this lovely wallpaper that I found. But to make things even better, this wallpaper collection happens to belong to a really good friend of mine David Quarles IV and I'm happy to get to feature it in my home.

The Before

I always like taking a look at the before so we can see just how much of a transformation we are getting and man was this a major transformation.

This room was just a plain white room, and I knew I really wanted to infuse it with some color; so I decided on this bold wallpaper.

Wallpaper Installation

I'm normally used to installing peel and stick wallpaper, so this was my first time using the wallpaper paste and I must say; it was a lot easier to handle on the wall than peel and stick. Now there was a lot more prep work, but I found it to be fairly easy getting the wallpaper installed.

I always like to install the panel so that and inch of it goes past the ceiling line so that I can cut a straight line after the install. For the first panel, I made sure to use my laser level to ensure the first panel was straight; if it's not straight you will be able to tell later when you go panel by panel so be sure to take your time and make sure that first panel is correct.

Now it's time for the reveal! I won't leave you completely hanging, so here's a little sneak peak! Now head on over to the Dining Room post for the final reveal!
