It’s funny how our tastes change and trends shift over time, isn’t it? There have been times in my years of homeownership where I wanted all the wallpaper to go. Immediately, in fact.

We’ve removed countless borders and wall treatments installed by previous owners in our homes over the years. We’ve even removed peel and stick wallpapers that we’ve installed ourselves!

However, there is much about wallpaper that I embrace. I love the immediate, bold visual appeal, and the way it makes a room stand out. It can be such a surprising, charming addition to all kinds of spots!

It’s a statement that’s all your own, and it’s absolutely gorgeous when chosen and installed correctly. I’m so excited to share my love for Serena and Lily wallpaper with you today!

Serena and Lily Wallpaper

In our lake cottage, we’ve embraced the old floral wallpapers in a couple bedrooms, and also added the most charming Serena and Lily wallpaper to others. There’s a little something for everyone in our version of Coastal Modern Home Decor!

Of course, there will always be rooms where I prefer a solid cream or white backdrop. Our Modern Coastal Living Room, for example.

But in our Modern Bathroom, I love the look of the block print stripe we added in this space. In fact, we have wallpapered this space twice, and started with a grasscloth that we loved, too (click through for the story on why we had to change it).

While I loved that look as well, paper we chose feels so fresh and modern. It’s a geometric pattern, but also still soft and even a little feminine. I couldn’t love it any more and I absolutely love hearing from readers who have purchased it after seeing it in our home!

It’s such a fun surprise off the hallway and since it’s used as the guest bathroom, I love hearing the exclamations from guests as they enter this fun space!

I am a big fan of Serena and Lily style. When we recently updated our primary bathroom at the lake, we chose the Bloomsbury pattern – it’s so much fun!

What to Consider Before Purchasing

Before purchasing a Serena and Lily wallpaper, consider the following tips and guidelines:

  • Consider the style of your room and home. Are you more modern, traditional, mid-century or cottage inspired? Let that overarching design style narrow down your choices.
  • Smaller patterns can be more difficult to install. If this is your first time hanging wallpaper, choosing a larger pattern or design that’s easier to match at the seams might be a good call. Or, simply call a professional for installation!
  • Grasscloth or paperweave might not be good for a bathroom or kitchen. The paper backing and material aren’t a good fit for high humidity levels. A close up of a navy blue grasscloth wallpaper
  • Measure once, twice… three times. you’ll measure and then multiply the width by the height, deducting for window and door openings, etc.
  • Order one extra roll for mistakes and pattern matching.
  • Look at swatches. This will give you an accurate depiction of color and texture.
  • Purchase from the same dye lot in order to ensure you’ll receive a perfect color match across all rolls.

This makes them an excellent option for renters, as well as any space where you’d like something a touch less permanent. They even have their best colors in removable grasscloth!

Pattern and Geometric

Geometric wallpaper is characterized by a repeating shape or line. This encompasses a wide variety of Serena and Lily wallpaper options, as it’s extremely popular in interior design at the moment.

Grasscloth wallcoverings have been used for decades for a textural addition to a variety of home interiors.

The term grasscloth refers to wallpapers that are made from the strands (hand-woven) of natural fibers, generally with an unpasted rice paper on the back.

The fiber options for this type of wallcovering are varied, and include jute, seagrass, hemp, raffia, bamboo and more. They come in a wide array of colors and can even have printed patterns.


Much like traditional basket weave style of grasscloth, paperweave wall coverings add an incredible texture and depth to a room. The soft and subtle texture of paperweave wallcovering instantly adds warmth and interest to a space.

It is crafted from paper, offering immediate depth. Paperweave wall coverings come in a wide variety of unique patterns and colorways, too!

  1. I love that bathroom/wall paper of yours, but we have never tried wallpaper that is not pre-pasted. Have you ever considered doing a post on how you did it? Or maybe a link to a source you found helpful in your project?

    Thank you! I love your house/style so much!

  2. Hi, Julie: In your latest e-mail you had a discussion about wallpaper. Under the “Paperweave” description, you had three samples of paperweave. I love the middle one which looked like crosshatched straw. From what company did you get those pictures. I would like to explore paperweave in more detail. Thank you!

    1. Hi Darline!
      I’m sorry I’m just now seeing your message. I wish I could give you more specifics about which one that might be – they are all samples from Serena and Lily though! If you click through to the paper weave link, you’ll find all these options there!
