Wallpaper is on it's way back into homes and adding a touch of character that regular old paint just can't do. Wallpaper can be really great in a lot of cases.
Sometimes walls end up with lots of scratches and dings but wallpaper can certainly cover that up and busy patterns will distract from any other issues your walls or woodwork may have.
Also wallpaper doesn't have to be the tacky floral print your grandmother has from the early 80's. There are plenty of great patterns our there with solid colors, modern designs, and subtle patterns.
Another option is just picking one wall to wallpaper and pull out a color from the pattern to paint the other 3 walls. This creates a little bit of fun and life in a room without overwhelming the eye.
Here are some wonderful uses of wallpaper in the home!
