Today we are seeing a lot of raiser surface prints in the interior design industry. This creates a very artistic and appealing look, they can give you the look of faux finishing but still save your walls.
Great look for a dining room or even a ceiling application.
Remember the grasscloth wallpaper that your grandmother used to have... well it's back. This time around manufactures have raised the bar by adding inlay and subtle metallic foil backgrounds to grasscloths; hand-screening prints onto hand-woven cattail; elevating faux sisal and grasses to an art. The design team is having so much fun they’re now making wood veneer ultra-chic with hand-hewn Marquetry designs.
This Sisal Twill’s contains gold peeking through grasscloth allowing a lot of warmth to come though.
This handmade printed grasscloth lends an elegant layer of texture and pattern to a room. It's a very custom look, and I bet your grandmother didn't have this type of grasscloth.
This is an example of an inlay grasscloth paper. It provides beautiful texture to a room
Subtly shimmering metallic wallpapers are a great way to create drama and add a wow factor to a room. In todays metallic wall coverings you will find luminous shades of copper, bronze, silver, platinum, gold, brass – and alluring mixes of metals whose colors are hard to describe until you see them in person.
Beautifully understated, Metallic Trees is a mix of shimmering metallics bring life to this space.
Bronze has been making a comeback for years and gives the room a very subtle earthy feel.
Outlined in gold, Dotted Paisley expresses the classic motif's swirling exoticism. This is one of my favorite new way to bring gold into the mix and blend it with a more contemporary feel.
Yesterday we talked about glass and sand so today lets look at some of the great EMBELLISHMENTS that you can add to your walls. We have wallpaper featuring
Embroidery, Swarovski crystals, metal filigreed, hammered metal discs – Tactile and visually rich, these accents add texture without distraction; glamour without glitz.
This application features a mother-of-pearl disc in the center of a hand-textured medallion adding to the luminosity.
With iridescent threaded wings, each dragonfly alighting onFanciful is meticulously embroidered onto shimmery, delicately pleated paper. This would be absolutely stunning in a nursery.
I just love the fun of Starburst is the creativity in hand-applying the crystal starburst motif onto the paper. It's subtle but beautiful.
This week we are going to take a look at some of the different looks that can be achieved with wall coverings.
Today let's look at one of my favorite new applications. Wallpaper made with glass and sand beads. Talk about adding texture to your room.
And the best thing about wallpaper is that it's not permeant, much like paint it can be changed out without completely redoing the walls.
The addition of this glass and sand wallpaper really gives this space a sense of warmth and depth.
The wallpaper becomes the artwork above the mantel in this application
You do not have to live on the coast to have a gorgeous space like this...the Midwest will work just fine!
I suggest adding some vibrant color to your living space! Colorful throw pillows, a bright stool and a patterned rug make this living room fun and funky and ready for warm weather!
When you find a rug you really love, use a glass coffee table with it so you aren't hiding it... also, it's very important to select the right size rug for your space.. and never be afraid to use large patterns... they can add so much color and texture to a room
As spring approaches I am more and more ready for warm weather and gardening! Are you ready to go green too? Take a cue from Pantone's color of the year and use shades of green to prepare your home for spring.
Like if you use green in your home!
The Dayton Society of Interior Designer make a splash at this years home and garden show. I participated in the change out space where we kept the walls the same color, the sofa and a side chair and everything else was completely transformed. It was fun to see how different accent pieces can really transform a room. Take a look at all of the different looks that we put together in our eight spaces. It was fun to see how dramatic the looks were.
