Wrapping Paper not just for Wrapping?

This post is about using gift wrapping paper to decorate multiple rooms in the house, and in many different ways! Have you thought of that? It first occurred to me when I was shopping for stationary and I saw a beautiful paper on display, and I instantly thought 'I could actually frame that!' It is a very affordable way to change the look in your rooms and add bags of style! Since then I have been looking for ideas and also for wrapping paper out there with the most potential to be used as decoration.

Here's some of the best I found:

I love these from Notonthehighstreet.com, there's so much you could do with it! Framing, decoupage, covering storage boxes.The colours on these are also very soft and easy to work with.  And the best thing is that you can always keep it fresh and new, and update the look whenever you change the colour scheme or theme in your rooms.

This one would look so good in a frame in pretty much any room! Kids bedroom, office, lounge, hallway, kitchen. It's affordable wall art at its best! It can be bought at Etsy.

This one is super cute - adorable in a nursery or little boys room. Also from Etsy.

There are so many great designs out there, and so much to do with them. Here's some inspiration from my Pinterest boards to get decorating with wrapping paper...

Different patterns in identical frames make for a great feature:

Using wrapping paper to cover the backing of a bookcase adds lots of style:

Framing a marbled paper in a large frame makes a statement:
