We liked how the faux brick wallpaper in our bedroom looked so much that we decided to add it to the wainscot wall in the hallway too! We love it! I know this look might not be for everyone, but we like it in our house. So let me show you how it turned out. It didn’t take that long to do and we did it in one afternoon, finishing up as it was getting dark outside. Daisy, of course, was there at every step.
If you missed the earlier post I did on our bedroom wall, check out out, faux wallpaper. This is the same Woodchip & Magnolia wallpaper we used there. This is not a sponsored post, but we do love this paper.
Here’s how it looks from the stairs looking up. It definitely adds texture and interest to the wainscot we added a couple of years ago.
Mark did a great job on this board and batten wainscot wall when he installed it back then.
This little wall juts out a bit so was a good stopping point for the wainscot and wallpaper and you can see how it looks into the bedroom with both done. We like the texture and warmth it brings up here.
Mark has had this G. Harvey print of the Civil War for a very long time and it’s been hanging here in this hallway since we moved in. It looks good on the brick wallpaper. It’s called Hope of the Confederacy and is from the National Archives Civil War Series.
This short hallway looks so much jazzier with the wallpaper and wainscot. That’s Mark’s grandmothers table and mirror that he cherishes up here.
A look at night with the hallway lights on.
One more look at the print.
This was right after we were finished hanging the wallpaper and cleaned everything up. it went pretty smoothly and we worked hard to get the seams perfectly matched and cutting the top and bottom cleanly. We love how it turned out and wanted to share this one with you too! Daisy approves!

Looks so nice!
Looks great and very warming. Definitely adds interest when you look up. We have those big 13×13″ tiles around our fireplace. I wanted to put stone around it – but was hesitant because I wasn’t totally sure how it would look and the cost. Ordered an inexpensive peel/stick stone wallpaper and put it up. It stayed up for about 2 years and we both loved it. It looked very real, but having a fire in the fireplace would not be good, so, last year we had stone installed and we love it, too! You always help us step out of that fraidy cat zone, so thank you!
HI kp, that’s a great story and good for you for using the wallpaper first. It’s a good solution for many things.
Beautiful! Just love it!!

Love it! How high does the wainscoting panels go up from the bottom of the stairs( up the wall of the stairs)?
Hi, Sarah, you’re talking about the wall above the stairs and I don’t remember how tall that is. We eye-balled it when we were doing that project. Here’s the post I did about that box wall of molding. https://southernhospitalityblog.com/how-to-add-box-molding-to-a-stair-wall/
It’s perfect! Nice work Mark. I’m gaining more confidence to pull the plug and go for it too!
The brick wall paper looks great. I would have liked to see a front shot of the hall picture. You have such wonderful art work throughout your home. I agree with Daisy…wonderful look.

I love it and can see why you wanted to add more to your home. We are getting ready to move and I already have plans to put this wallpaper somewhere in my home!
Thanks, Lynne, we really like it a lot. It did just what we had hoped.
I love it! It adds so much interest, texture, and character to your hallway.
I’m team Daisy, I love it.

The brick wallpaper in your hallway looks so nice. This was such a great idea. Your home is beautiful — and Daisy is so cute! Have a great week!
Great job on installation! It sure looks real and adds character.
The hall looks beautiful. I cannot believe how realistic the brick looks. I even went back to read the post regarding your bedroom and again it is so nice. We have been looking for a solution to a wall in our hallway and this looks like the winner.
Thanks for posting and I am fairly new to your blog but really enjoy your posts.
Thank you, Debora, welcome, so glad you found me! We really love how the brick looks.
First time I’ve checked here in many years.
Nothing adds warmth and class like faux brick, especially when you can get up close and Touch the “Paper.” Just being honest. It may be cheap and easy but tends to look it too. To each their own but I think it really cheapens the look of your home. Brick is to add warmth, texture and interest as well but when it’s faux it adds none of those. Sorry.
