It's Back, Baby!

WALLPAPER!
  We know this is not exactly the news flash of the century, but we feel we need to sing the praises of wallpaper. Since it's reputation took a dive after some well-meaning 1960's and 70's decorators over-used the popular prints of the decade, it was considered totally "out" in the 90's and has slowly and quietly crept it's way back into our hearts!
   Decorating a nursery about 6 months ago, one AK staffer searched HIGH and LOW for a proper pink and white Damask print paper and wound up doing her own stenciling on the wall. (A decision she regretted during the 12+ hours of painting, but the end result is stunning.) We realized at that point that despite wallpaper making it's way back onto the front page, it can still be hard to find - at least in it's new, more glamorous forms. The wallpaper books at Lowe's and Home Depot looked like they had been collecting dust since buyers were picking out their big 1980's floral print papers. Selection was disappointing. Where we found a better selection was at paint stores, like Sherwin Williams and the like. Do you know a great, Atlanta area wallpaper source? We'd love to hear and share your nominations!
   Here are a few examples of some new wallpaper trends - some inspiration for outside the wallpaper box thinking:

The Powder Room
Texture is the name of the game for this room. Accent walls and dark colors, surprisingly, can liven up this small space.
