Have you tried the Allen and Roth line at Lowes? I went through their books a few weeks back and they had some amazing prints.

Most of the wallpapers that I seem to love hail from the UK, so I only know how to order them online. And a bunch of them are impossible to find here. Or are only offered in the US in certain colors. And they’re all really expensive. But Anthropologie alwyas carries a nice lot.

 Other than that, I’m sure someplace fancy in a larger city would certainly carry them. Here’s one of my favorite companies, though I think they are an American Company?

http://www.thibautdesign.com/index.php is my favorite, but quite expensive. I plan to use whatever paper I buy more as an accent in the back of a bookshelf and such becaseof the price. But if I really really love something and it is perfect for the room, I may just splurge.

Have you looked at home depot? They have tons of books and you can find almost anything there.

Anthropologie has really cool wallpaper, but it’s also super expensive. I would also recommend buying an architectual digest magazine and checking the ads, or if a designer used wallpaper they usually say where it’s from.

I don’t know about Home Depot, but I know that Lowes carries wallpaper b/c the one I want for one of my rooms is part of their Allen & Roth line.

I looked all over the internet and just found that most wallpaper is SOOO expensive, and I found the look I like just as much at Lowes.

I’m not liking hearing that it is so pricey.  I was thinking about doing some smaller accent walls and such in our new house with a neat wallpaper.

@MissDareDevil:  Some people use a repeat pattern wall decal instead of wall paper. Its much easier to change up the look that way.

 

Here is an example

There used to be seperate wallpaper stores, but in the past 10 years, many have closed since it’s mostly gone out of favor. Most people prefer paint these days. I have to say I agree! I’ve spent way too many hours stripping it off after I’d wallpaperd my whole last house, and would never use it again.

Supply and demand now…higher prices since few are buying.

Have you considered a stencil?  There are many fun, modern-looking stencils out there now with which you (or a professional) could paint a whole wall or room.  I painted my bathroom ceiling with a Moroccan inspired stencil that I got off off Etsy.  I think the company may have been Royal Designs.  The advantage, of course, is that it’s much easier to paint over once you’re ready for something new than it is to remove wallpaper.

try royal design companies stencils, they have some really beautiful patterns and it will be much easier to change later

also have you tried googling? i know i’ve seen some interesting wallpapers on websites but just can’t seem to find them now
