You love it. You hate it.
Covering your walls in anything but paint elicits strong opinions. Like art, wall coverings are a personal design statement and one that you should really love and want to look at every day.
For color, texture and that “wow” factor, wall coverings come in a variety of materials, each with unique properties to transform any room. There’s paper, of course. But so much more. Vinyl, acrylic, fabric, and bamboo to name a few. You can also over your walls in wine bottles, but we’ll save that topic for another day.
‘Wallpaper is a key trend for 2020,” says Homes and Gardens “and the insatiable appetite from consumers doesn’t look like abating any time soon. Whatever your taste, there is something everyone, from traditional florals and trompe l’oeil, to contemporary geometric and tropical patterns or animal motifs and architectural designs. The progress in new printing techniques and finishes is constantly pushing the boundaries, and the availability of new substrates makes it even more exciting. Gone are the days of just printing on paper, you can now embellish corks, grass-cloths and silks with pretty much any design.”
Let’s take a look at how our favorite designers, some of them recently featured here, use wall coverings.
