I’m so excited to share the first room in our new home that is complete(ish); welcome to the Dining Room Reveal! If you have been following along on my Instagram account (@taylormadecreates) then you know this past summer we bought a house straight out of 1990 and have been working hard to make it our own! My plan of attack was to tackle the easy rooms first that didn’t need as much help, so we started with the kids rooms, Craft Room and Dining Room. I knew I wanted wallpaper in this room so I was super excited when Photowall reached out to me for a partnership! (And it’s your lucky day because I have a coupon code to share at the end of the post!!!)
It’s no secret how much I love wallpaper and at first glance I knew I was going to love Photowall because they have prints that I have never seen and designs that are super unique (which is also something I love). A lot of the wallpaper companies carry the same lines and designs but these were different (in a good way) so I was in! I was looking for something a little more formal and maybe even a tad moody in here. When we looked at the house I loved the molding treatment on the bottom half of the wall but everything else was pretty dated so I just had to spruce it up. Here is a “before” picture the day we looked at the house:
When we moved in we had the bottom half of the wall painted solid white… painting the molding the same color as the wall it is on makes it a little more modern in my opinion so we started there then I headed to Photowall to pick out the wallpaper for the top half of the wall. This room has 3 full walls then the 4th wall is just a few feet as it’s open to the entryway. We wanted to wallpaper all 4 walls and the way Photowall prints their wallpaper it made it perfect for this room… more on that later!
I spent a few days looking for the perfect wallpaper then I narrowed it down to three. Botanical Morning (left), Budgies Offwhite (Center) and Stunner Peachy (right). I loved all of them and honestly the two I didn’t choose felt a little more “me” but I wanted to choose something different and the black background with florals checked all the boxes! The flowers are a little unexpected the way they are all laid out and y’all know I love unexpected! The second picture down below is the wallpaper on the actual wall so it’s even better and more vibrant in person!
They always offer free shipping and it was super fast… but now to the best part! Photowall prints their wallpaper like no company I’ve ever worked with… when you choose your wallpaper you type in your wall’s width and height, so in my case I had the same height for all 4 walls (above molding to ceiling) but then I added the width of the 4 walls together. They then print it panel by panel, so for example we had 28 panels, which were all already the correct size! This is so smart because you don’t have to worry about measuring and accounting for the drop on the pattern or account for any waste. Each panel is clearly marked for you and you can just cut where the cut line is and line each panel up next to each other, one after another. Here is a picture of the top of a panel that is marked.
I had a few rooms that needed wallpapering so we hired an installer but the instructions and the way the panels are printed made it seem like I totally could have done it haha!
I really love the way it turned out! It’s a tad dramatic and still fun and eclectic and so perfect for the space. Speaking of perfect for the space… I’m very obsessed with the light fixture! I will link everything at the bottom of this post :)
