Locally, the Wallpaper Bin in Northridge and other shops have been waiting for this moment. You can find amazing books of wallpaper swatches at any paint store.
While the rest of us have gotten involved with trends like sponging and glazing and faux finishes, the wallpaper people have patiently tooled along, designing and manufacturing a plethora of wallpapers. And now, we may turn our eyes in that delightful direction and wonder: Where has wallpaper been all our lives?
Here are some other recent articles that talk about this new happening:

Decorative wallpaper makes a comeback [Business Daily Africa]
However, not everyone appreciates the beauty of this re-emerging decor trend. Paris Hilton was reportedly banned for life from the Hyatt Hotel in Moscow for signing her name in black marker on some very expensive wallpaper. On the other hand, maybe she was just in the discovery stage of designing her very own line of wallpaper.
