As I’ve indicated before, wallpaper removal is the bane of my existence. The devil’s handiwork. And I have more of it in my house than I would like. Our office is another one of those spaces, only this time, it’s black wallpaper. Yes, black. But hold your judgment for a moment my friends. Don’t be a hater just yet.
Here is a picture of the black wallpaper in our office.
Not as bad as you thought it would be, right? Maybe? I should mention that the entire room isn’t wallpapered – just two walls, which makes it a bit easier on the eyes. Plus, with the white trim, crown moulding, wood floors and cute window seats, it’s tolerable. I don’t love it. I wouldn’t have chosen it. But I can deal with it. For now.
From a distance, it’s ok. But you lose me on the close up.
No, you’re not hallucinating. Those are elephants. With little men riding them.
Sometimes the little men are holding little umbrellas. Maybe he’s trying to direct the wandering elephant in the right direction. Black wallpaper just went from chic to geek, right?
It doesn’t always have to be that way though. Look how dramatic and striking black wallpaper can be:

So, maybe black wallpaper with elephants is a miss, but many of the options out there can be big hits if they’re used in the right way, don’t you think?
