Cover Up

June 2, 2014

Today’s designers and clients are looking for ways to impact the “wow” factor without having to add costly items such as tile, stone, or expensive textile fabrics. Wallpaper provides the solution and creates interest in so many ways. The embellished wall trend has limitless options not only from simple grass cloths and hand painted papers to coverings applied with glass beads, crystals, metal and veneer. If you are looking for a contemporary or unexpected use of wall covering select braided hemp or sea grass. They often require special care when installed so when in doubt, consult a professional. Another trend that has made its appearance again is metallic. If you are a few steps ahead of the design trends you might decide to use ultra thin wood veneer blocks in a sunburst pattern or perhaps micro sheets of metal trapezoids to create a sleek and stunning effect.
