Over the past 10 years, the world of wallpaper has taken a wonderful turn. While we’ve seen the return of bold foiled and mylar papers (courtesy of companies like Flavor Paper), we’ve also seen turn into digitally printed papers and open the door for an entire generation of up-and-coming independent designers. We’ve also seen the arrival of mass-marketed, removable wallpaper that makes decorating walls possible for anyone in a rental (or an indecisive mood). To celebrate the incredible wealth of designs we’ve been seeing online, I decided to dedicate this month’s hashtag challenge to WALLPAPER. Whether you’re snapping a pic of a new paper you’ve installed in your own home or just sharing a great pattern you saw on the walls at your favorite restaurant or hotel, upload your photo and hashtag it #DSWALLPAPER and we’ll share our favorites on our social media accounts (, , and ) and here on DS at the end of the month! xo, grace
