On a recent visit to my favourite paint store (everyone should have a ‘favourite’ paint store with knowledgeable staff, great products and lots of inspiration) to have some custom tinted paint for an outdoor project (details to follow) I noticed that there were some new wallpaper sample books.
And I mean new, as in edgy, sexy wallpaper samples. Definitely not your Grandma’s kind of wallpaper!
I know that fashion is cyclical and although these wallpaper samples may have been similar in some ways to styles of the past, these newest wallpapers are ‘pumped up’ about a 100 notches.
I suddenly found myself re-thinking my sentiments on wallpaper. When we moved into our home 15 years ago about 90% of the walls and ceilings were covered in wallpaper. I couldn’t get rid of the stuff fast enough!
But now…..who knows, maybe a feature wall in striking contemporary wallpaper might just be the detail I’m looking for.
‘Hang’ here for details to follow!
