Hi, I’m Stephanie Hendries, an editor at Housetohome and theROOMedit and today Home Shopping Spy’s fabulous editor, Alice has very kindly agreed to let me loose on her blog so I can tell you all about my upcoming decorating project (and hopefully get a bit of advice)….
I’m about to embark on a big overhaul of my bedroom. At the moment it’s an all-white room flooded with light, with a few hand-me down pieces of furniture. It’s welcoming and relaxed, but it’s a bit too plain for my liking.
Deliberating over the bedroom’s current lacklustre look, it struck me that statement wallpaper might be the answer. Neutral rooms can be completely transformed with a show-stopping feature wall… With this in mind, I headed over to our shiny new website, theROOMedit to find some inspiration. It wasn’t long before I came across this fabulous bedroom scheme, which uses a pattered roller to create a wallpaper-style effect. Genius.
You can find patterned paint rollers from a company called The Painted House, who have an online Etsy store where they sell a whole host of pretty designs. If you’re feeling extra creative you can use them to perk up old wooden furniture or even to make wrapping paper!
So what do you think? Should I embrace the paint roller instead of traditional wallpaper? Let me know your thoughts below…
