Wallpapered Dining Rooms

I have had wallpapered dining rooms on my mind a lot lately.  Online you can find lots of inspiration for a pretty dining room. Wallpaper can bring so much interest into a room and can make a large room more cozy and cohesive.  By using a paper with different colors, you are able to use so many variations of colors on your table that will work so prettily with your papered walls.

A common thread with these dining rooms is a lot of green in the papers used.  That wasn't purposely done but I must admit I am very drawn to green.  Green is a natural color that will work with anything.  Isn't it supposed to the color of the year or something?  Oh well I really love green regardless if it's the special color chosen for the year.

As you go through them notice how the flowers are very pretty but not absolutely necessary as they are in a white dining room.  There’s so much pretty on the walls the flowers don’t need to stand out.

And now my dear readers, I have been staring at so many fabric choices for curtains to go in my dining room.   My first instinct was green but the greens used in fabric today just aren't working well with my paper so I need to be in love with something else.   What color would you pull out?   I would love to know your choice and it would be great to hear from you.




  1. I could look at these all morning, beautiful, as usual. Blue? Can't wait to see!

    1. Thank you Princess! Indeed blue would be a lovely contender.

  2. What a sight for sore eyes Jan! I love, love, love wallpaper! Especially floral or botanical. It seems nobody likes it anymore though like they did in the 1990's. Have a great day!

    1. Thank you Gina, I love it too. It is gaining popularity but I am partial to florals and botanicals too! You can't beat the prettiness of that style.

  3. I don't know if you have Home Goods near you, but they have a beautiful silvery gray panel that might look good with your paper...it is very light like the shadowy leaves in your paper. Otherwise, I would be prone to match the background color. I will be the first to admit that I am old and "sot" in my ways :^(
    Your paper is lovely and I think it should be the star of the show. At least my un-informed opinion didn't cost you anything :^)
    Thanks for the beautiful inspiration pictures, and blessings to you...

    1. Thanks Jay! So good to hear from you and so glad to hear your idea. Blessings to you dear Jaybird.
