Wallpaper for the Modern Day Home

There is a certain mentality among suburbia that says wallpaper is a definite NO. It's seen as okay  to have in a vintage Victorian home where all the details have been kept up, and maybe a border stripe in the kid's room, but other than that, we associate it with grandmothers and instinctually have to rip it down if we see it in the new house we buy. Even if someone loved it when they put it up in the 80s, eventually it nags at that person until they take it down. But I am here to prove that wallpaper can be a YES, in moderation.
