Marble Paper as Wallpaper

I'm working on a powder room project that could use a little punch. I love this bathroom published in Lonny. The walls were papered with marbled gift wrap (the same paper I used here). Isn't this space gorgeous? I love that the direction of the swirls is random - there's so much movement here!

Here are a few more of my favorite marbled paper walls. It's a great way to add a little excitement to a wall or a nook:

And I think it's still so pretty for smaller applications. I really love marbled paper on the back of a bookshelf or secretary especially.

If you're in the market for some pretty paper for a project, here are a few of my favorites available online right now, ranging from $3-8 per sheet. I'm thinking one of these could be a winner for my powder bath project.

PS West Elm makes a marble print wallpaper now!

PPS If you're feeling adventurous, make your own marbled papers! I think it would be pretty to marbleize a few mats for a picture frame series.
