I do not know about wallpaper, because in our view nothing can duplicate the actual touch and feel of the true fresco. However, if your question also implies the high cost of fresco, it is really not that much more expensive than a mural or even could be less depending on the level of detail.

Wall paper. Maybe a little too worn out for such a large room?

Worn out Fresco Wall

Classic wall surfaces traditionally done in fresco. Designs are inspired by various cultures over thousands years of fresco history. In addition to classic imagery, a variety of contemporary and modern ornamental design patterns are adapted to fresco by our artists.

True (buon) fresco—the oldest and most celebrated painting technique—is painting with natural pigments on wet plaster. Paints are prepared from minerals and various clays. Plaster is made of slaked lime (calcium hydrate) and sand. As wet plaster cures a natural reaction occurs permanently embedding pigments into the cured plaster. This artwork is created using true centuries-old fresco techniques and materials.

Unlike faux finishes and fresco imitations, true (buon) frescoes create a unique feeling of authenticity, depth and richness of the artwork. The frescoes can be applied in traditional or contemporary settings: from genuine buon fresco fragments that are aged and worn to match period and style of selected era, to full-sized wall or ceiling frescos whether aged and stylized or fresh and new.
