Over the last few decades, we have seen wall paper come and go. What was extremely popular in the 1950-1970’s became a nightmare to have in a home in the 1980’s and 1990’s (remember how difficult it was to remove?). But in the new millennium, wallpaper has made a comeback in such a trendy, on-point way, that the concept is now a permanent design style. Wall coverings have been in such demand over the last few years that most of the big, brand-name fabric companies have even entered into the market – introducing woven, natural, and printed textile wall coverings made to coordinate with their matching fabric collections. All of which makes us see a whole new world of texture in every room.
Wall coverings can add boldness, color and texture to any space of your home. Particularly, they are commonly found in offices, foyers and entryways. They are also popular in small spaces such as powder rooms and laundry rooms. The interior design fashion even charmingly breaks up long hallways and enhances the overall feel in stairwells. Wherever it is used, the design trend is sure to make a statement.
As a great alternative to paint, there are thousands of options to fit any room décor. Wall coverings come in every color and design imaginable from geometric shapes, to linen and sea grass fabric, to animal print and damask designs, to even that of a lightly textured floral design. Wall coverings can fit in any residential or commercial environment ranging from industrial and modern to old world vintage. What’s even more alluring is that wall coverings and wall papers can be completely customizable. For instance, clients may have their favorite quote or personal artwork embedded in a design for a room styled unlike anyone else’s. The options truly are limitless.
Ways we like to incorporate wall coverings into our projects is by making use of them as accent walls in large, open rooms and as subtle wall statements by entry way tables. We even love the look when used as backdrops in open-doored furniture pieces and as artwork when hung in large frames above the bed or living room sofa.
