Wallpaper Prints We’ve Used and Love in Minnesota Homes

“I thought I was over my wallpaper phase, but looking at what you have online has me right back into it.  Oh, some of the papers are so gorgeous!” – Hirshfield’s customer K.M.

A few months ago K.M. saw a white birch bark wallpaper in an Arizona model home and could not get the paper off her mind. She emailed Hirshfield’s and I happened to have a sample roll of the paper in my office. Karma. The birch bark paper is really a paper-thin sheet of cork, adhered to a paper backing, and dyed white. K.M. plans on hanging the paper in a powder room.

Inquiring minds want to know? What are people hanging in their homes? Jane Hedin, skilled paper hanger and long-time Hirshfield’s customer, shares intel on recent wallpaper jobs:

  • Dining Room – String, navy damask, and Sanderson green floral. All four walls were papered in these dining rooms – no feature walls.
  • Kitchen – Candice Olson geometric pattern
  • Entryway –  Birch Trees by York Wlcvg.
  • Hallway – Natural Reeds
  • Stairwell and Entry – Zoffany vinyl texture
  • Powder Room – Best of Show by Osborne and Little (black and white), Candice Olson Squiggle (glass beads), Thibaut chinoiserie, and Schumacher’s Imperial Trellis
  • Ladies Dressing Room – Nudes (black and white)
  • Mid-Century Modern Home – Black and white mural
