    I’m pretty sure my sister’s bedroom had the pink floral striped wallpaper. This was in 1980.

    I am not a big fan of wallpaper, especially this wallpaper….and that is the saddest dining room ever. :-(

    Those 2 bathrooms are identical. Are they from a townhouse row?

    I heard a co-worker describe how difficult it was to remove wallpaper that was next to the toilet because her boys had such lousy aim that the urine soaked paper was impossible to get off the wall; that story alone is enough for me to never have a wallpapered bathroom.

    I know you’ll want to hit me, but I kinda like the Bamboo one. lol

    We have orange mushroom contact paper in our kitchen cabinets (hello house that was built in 1969 and it’s a high cabinet that apparently people have missed) but I left it there. I thought it was kinda cool. lol

    I love the bamboo, not the room though.

    […] Wallpaper is making a huge come back and if you are feeling bored with a room in your home this could be just thing to bring it back to life. I know, scary right? We all have those horrible images embedded in our brains of ugly wallpaper and tacky borders from the past like this one with matching bedspread… Source: uglyhousephotos.com via Mike on Pinterest […]

    I like the tulip pattern on the top, but the bottom should be solid. I think it would work in a modern funky room. I like the bamboo also, but in general not a fan of wallpaper.
