In case you haven't heard yet, we're running a contest all month long for Dress Your Walls month, this time with the fabulous ferm LIVING, which is giving away a wall's worth of gorgeous wallpaper to one lucky reader. Check out this post to find out how to enter the contest.
Here is the first wall in need of some wallpaper rehabilitation.

This is our first owned house, which we've been living in for a little over one year now. I love mixing and matching patterns, vivid colors, and elements of nature. We've been pretty focused on renovating, painting, and decorating the common rooms of the house, but the master bedroom has been pretty neglected. The previous owners lived in this house for 15 years and chose this sad, sloppily applied paint color (I'm pretty sure they used a semi-gloss). I've tried the quick remedy to distract eyes away from the wall with some vintage mid-century bedroom furniture scored on Craigslist and some patterned bedding I recently bought on sale. But I'd really love to ditch the IKEA side table and completely rethink the room palette with crisp white and mocha brown against that fantastic "Feather" wallpaper (below left) from ferm LIVING. I've been obsessed with that pattern ever since I laid eyes on it, in fact I even bought a sampler sheet of it and framed it for my family room! Wall Measurements: 95.5" H x 137" W (there is a window along the wall that is 41.5" H x 40" W).
While the contest will be judged by myself and the lovely Christiana Coop, wallpaper expert and ferm LIVING’s wallpaper expert, I'd love to hear your comments, too! We'll be posting contest entries for the next several weeks, and will announce the winner on the last day of the month. So join the group, send in your photos, and show us your walls!
