From the walls in Hopper’s bathroom to the Hawkins Elementary School gym, wallpaper goes to great use in several parts of “Stranger Things.” According to HK Interiors, dressing up the home with wallpaper is an evergreen decor technique. It worked in the ’80s, and it’s still working wonders now. One of the best parts about decorating with wallpaper is how long it lasts. While painted walls usually need touch-ups every two years, wallpaper can last up to 15 years.
There are many different styles, prints, textures, and patterns to choose from depending on the part of the home you wish to decorate and (of course) the budget. If you have some money to spare and want a timeless wallpaper brand, Scalamandré (founded in the 1920s) is the perfect retro company for you. The legendary design house is not the cheapest option, but with iconic bold prints and matching bed frames and cushions, going all out never felt so good.
