The Budget-Friendly Way Erin Napier Personalizes
A Kitchen
Designer Erin Napier in her book "Heirloom Rooms: Soulful Stories of Home" explains how a wallpaper kitchen backsplash had a special significance in one of her renovations.
In Season 2, Episode 4 of "Home Town," Emily and Billy James purchased the Rutledge House, and Napier decided to incorporate Emily's Mexican heritage into the home’s design.
Napier designed a custom-printed vinyl backsplash for the kitchen in a striking pattern that resembled Mexican tile, featuring shades of teal, blue, and white.
You can copy Napier's idea by installing vinyl wallpaper as a backsplash around the kitchen. If centered behind the stove, the laminate surface will make it easy to clean.
As Napier notes, vinyl wallpaper can be a budget-friendly design solution that captures your kitchen’s style — you can get nearly 10 feet of the material from Amazon for under $10.
Vinyl wallpaper is economical, easy to install, and often waterproof. Choose a style you love to create a home that tells a story like the one Napier describes in her book.
