Catching the wave: Wallpaper in the kitchen

I love how the addition of whimsical wallpaper into a contemporary kitchen really warms up what could become a cold feeling space. There is defintely a new wave of wallpapers and decals that are great for use in the kitchen – without feeling old and stodgy. Since kitchens often only have one wall that has any kind of open space, it can be a great opportunity to experiment with bolder and larger patterns to create a focal wall that balances the heaviness caused by appliances and cabinetry.

Here are some fabulous spaces:

Anna at Absolutely Beautiful Things blogged about wallpaper in kitchens last winter.

Am thinking that my teeny kitchen might find some new life – and scale – by going bold and beautiful!
