A dream about wallpaper often symbolizes your public self and how you present to others. But the meaning can vary.

It may reflect your desire to change your image or hide something about yourself. If the wallpaper is old or peeling, it suggests that you are trying to let go of old habits or past relationships. If you're changing or installing wallpaper, it indicates your desire for change or transformation. You may be ready to start a new chapter in your life or change your outlook. This dream encourages self-improvement and personal growth.

Wallpaper is a somewhat deep and fascinating dream symbol to interpret with any certainty. To say for sure, it's really necessary to get a deeper understanding of the dreamer's past and current situation.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of wallpaper, in Freudian terms, may represent the 'facade' or 'persona' we project to the world, a reflection of our ego's attempt to mediate between our internal desires and societal expectations.

Taking that analysis a bit deeper... If the wallpaper is deteriorating, it could signify the crumbling of this facade, an unconscious yearning to reveal our true selves. Conversely, installing new wallpaper might symbolize the ego's endeavor to construct a new identity, perhaps as a defense mechanism against internal conflict or external pressures. This dream, therefore, may be an invitation to introspect, to reconcile with our 'shadow' self, and to embrace authenticity.

Dreaming about wallpaper signifies the spiritual veneer you've created to interact with the world. It's a reflection of your soul's desire to express its true essence. If the wallpaper is old or peeling, it's a spiritual call to shed outdated beliefs or past karma that no longer serve your growth. Changing or installing wallpaper in a dream symbolizes your soul's yearning for transformation and evolution. It's a divine nudge to embrace change, to renew your spiritual commitments, and to align more closely with your higher self. This dream is a spiritual invitation to self-discovery and soulful transformation.
