Today, I’m bringing you a post from the nursery of a sweet little man who is due in May. My friend Erika and her family live in this beautiful 100 year old house near the center of town. It has amazing shiplap, beautiful hardwoods and lots of character.

Yall, I’m so happy that wallpaper is back in full force. Especially with all the amazing, modern patterns and less stressful ways of hanging it.
When I was contacted by Brewster Home Fashions about a wallpaper project I immediately thought of Erika’s nursery. This room acted as servants quarters originally. Isn’t that fancy? I can’t imagine.. It’s an amazing space. You walk in through an arched door way and look down a striped wall to a bright room full of windows and light.
It’s a small space but I think that makes it all the more cozy and perfect for a little baby. Plus a small space with windows doesn’t seem like a small space at all. It’s science.
They had already painted all the trim and the walls when they first moved in. The room already looked great but an accent wall with a fun wallpaper was the perfect addition.
Brewster has paintable, textured wallpaper, peel and stick options and even where you paste the wall and not the paper. I chose peel and stick thinking that it would be the easiest to work with. We were both immediately drawn to this Metropolis wallpaper. The black and white is so fresh and clean looking and I think the modern print works so well in this eclectic, old house. LOVE!
We got the rolls and started hanging. The set came with a utility knife and a smoother spatula thing. I’m 100% sure that’s not what it’s called. Both came in very handy. Some other things we used were: a level, scissors, a metal ruler, a step stool and popcorn.
We began at the edge of the wall, made a horizontal line with the level so that the wallpaper would hang straight and hung our first strip.
year old house, guess what? NOTHING is level. So we had spot or two that
looked a little uneven but it was mostly the house being it’s charming
The comforter didn’t look so good on the white side, next to the wallpaper so we flipped it over to the reverse.

Thank you Jeff and Erika, for letting me help myself to the walls in your house. I hope little H loves his cityscape walls. It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes before a building gets colored in…..
