There is simply no denying the wonderful results that a room gets with wallpaper. Adding a splash of print and pattern wakes up any space, and even a subtle tone and motif can spice up the dullest of spaces. While we go B-A-N-A-N-A-S for a pretty paper, we know it isn’t for everyone. We’re realistic – paint is far less permanent.

Being the pattern-praisers that we are, we have found an alternative. If you live for the dreamiest and most whimsical prints around, look no further. You can apply this look to your walls with a roller. Etsy is our go-to source for this type of tool. While there aren’t a ton of shops that carry these specialty rollers, there are some that have a good assortment. The majority of what you will find in terms of pattern are florals, botanicals, and the occasional critter.
