Wallpaper is Hot!

Our Facebook question of the day was paint, wallpaper or faux finish on your walls?  I’m curious to see how many of my friends actually like wallpaper.   As a designer I encourage my clients to use wallpaper especially in baths and laundry rooms.

Check out this powder room on Daniel Island where we used a Seabrook wallpaper.  The subtle design complements the decorative tile.
