Written by David | July 26, 2021

Is wallpaper still a thing? Do people really still want wallpaper? Yes and YES!!

You can always paint rooms in your home with different colors.  How about Using Wallpaper to accent walls in your home? Contrary to what you may hear, the use of wallpaper is one of the oldest ways to decorate homes! No scoffing allowed today. In a recent trip to Charleston, SC, we visited the Nathaniel Russel historic house. In that home was recreated wallpaper and some restored wallpaper that predated the civil war!!
