If Your Walls Could Talk…What Would They Say?

Is Wallpaper still IN?

Walls are your largest blank canvas in your home. Let them make you smile. Let them be the topic of conversation. Allow them to contribute to your home and lend to your personality!

Wallpaper has been back IN for a while now, but the options have expanded over the recent years and I am confident that there is a wallcovering for everyone.

Wallpaper isn’t the only option now- vinyl wallcoverings are here! Commercial grade vinyls have come a long way in the design industry with a luxurious look, vibrant colors and impressive textures. We have been using wallcoverings in both residential and commercial spaces, from everything including accent walls, fireplaces and powder rooms. These are easy to install and easy to clean. Want to make a statement? This is a way to infuse your personality onto your walls.

We often use commercial wallcoverings in residential settings for their durability. You can even wipe them down with a Clorox wipe! Commercial wallcoverings are not what they used to be- the industry has transformed, producing commercial grade products that look, feel and fit in with residential spaces.

The color, texture and pattern that these coverings provide include everything from grass cloth and watercolor patterns to beaded, marbled, striped and wood veneer textures. This is an easy and affordable way to make a room or wall stand out with a unique material!

Wallcovering ideas:

  • Accent walls: bed walls in bedrooms, laundry rooms, powder rooms, fireplace walls, behind shelves, behind tubs
  • Ceilings: small spaces like home offices, closets and bathrooms
  • Branding walls: use colors from your logo to make this a marketing opportunity in your design!
  • Frame patterned pieces and turn them into artwork! [I did this in my home office!]

So, if your walls could talk, what would they say? Don’t leave them hanging…
