I think wallpaper is definitely back...

not sure how i feel about it though.. i think it can give a room a lot of personality, but the ppl living in the home need to have big personalities as well

lots of fun things can be done with it but it's definitely a lot more expensive than a coat of paint

also more difficult to take down when you're ready for a change...

Wallpaper can definitely give a room an own personality and make it something special, but only if it's done right (ie. not overdone). If my room was cleaner and more minimalistic than it is now, I'd love to have damask wallpaper on one wall.

i can't wait to finally own a home and use wallpaper! a lot of times i'll see those shows on hgtv where people are looking to makeover a room, and they always say that this fantastic wallpaper is terrible, while i'm sitting there drooling over it. i think murals are also back. i wonder how one becomes a wallpaper designer...

thanks for the pics NYni... I think they illustrate your point very well

a lot of the more subtle prints are very workable without being overwhelming... and the idea of papering only once accent wall can be a great way to make a statement without going overboard as well

my employer over the summer (the editor/publisher of a high end home magazine) had wallpaper in several rooms in her house and it looked really great

Post your favorite wallpaper and/or textile patterns

To get the ball rolling...

This dress fabric, entitled ĎSurfersí, was manufactured by the Calico Printersí Association in 1937. The dynamic composition shows women surfing on lilos. They wear fashionable bathing costumes in highly contrasting red, white and navy.

Carolina Herrera used the pattern in her SS 2005 collection.

I've been googling looking for pictures of some Zandra Rhodes fabrics because she's really known for her textiles...

but I'm really not having any luck

I visited the Fashion and Textile Museum while Rhodes' own exhibit was there a couple of years ago (she was the owner but I believe she has since sold the museum)..

The designs were really out of the ordinary but some of the prints and textiles were really very innovative so it's a shame that I can't find any pictures online

She got some very vibrant colors in cool patterns..
maybe I'll get lucky and find a good photo some day

That horse print is pretty nice!... I did a similar bird/dove/swallow print for work.

But creating repeats is evil... and insanely hard. Sooo, go textile designers!
