The Wonders of Wallpaper

If you’ve been out of touch for a while, you may not have heard… Wallpaper is back in a BIG way. Chances are, you already know this and have been seeing the wonders of wallpaper just about everywhere you look.

We were inspired to share the wonders of wallpaper with you, thanks to a fantastic article in the April 2015 issue of Atlanta Magazine featuring an absolutely enviable space by our friend Kelly of Kandrac & Kole Interiors.

While blue and white is a classic combination, the addition of a bold wallpaper to a bathroom space is totally refreshing, and truly eye-popping! It’s no wonder this space was selected as Atlanta Magazine‘s April “Room Envy” space.

In addition to this wallpapered bathroom, we’er seeing lots more action with wallpaper in general…

Below is an image of a room in the 2015 Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Showhouse, which we previewed last week. This is a fabulous powder room space designed by our new friend Beth Kooby, which features “Petal Pusher” wallpaper by Oh Joy! and we think it’s so much fun!


While wallpaper does add instant drama, you don’t have to use it throughout an entire room to successfully incorporate wallpaper into a space. In fact, we’re loving the idea of using wallpaper as an accent. Whether it’s used to line the back of bookshelves, or add a fun pop of color and pattern to a piece of furniture (as seen in many of the Grange pieces carried at steve mckenzie’s), it’s a surefire winner!

Are you ready to experience the wonder of wallpaper for yourself? If you think you’re ready to take the plunge, but don’t quite know where to start, reach out to the team here at steve mckenzie’s and we’d be thrilled to help make a fantastic design, featuring some fun wallpaper, happen for you!
