…and the WOW is all about transformation. A subtle neutral offers as much WOW as a showstopping graphic. Wallcovering, whether it plays a supporting role or is the star of your design, adds character. It adds a layer of warmth. It uses the power of color, pattern, and texture. It can create a look that’s upbeat (or nostalgic, or high style) and very, very livable.
Wallcovering is style shorthand.
What can an empty room tell you? Not much. Hang wallcovering in the same empty room, though, and suddenly it has a story.
For… || Consider… |
| casual, global warmth || textures like grasscloth and string |
| romance || large florals |
| sweet, innocent, pretty || small florals |
| tailored elegance || menswear patterns, glen plaid, pinstripes |
| luxury, comfort || damasks, toile de jouy |
Wallcovering can enhance architectural details.
Elegant chair rails and paneling are natural companions for a distinctive wallcovering. Use it to create beautiful definition – or to create interest in a room with no architectural details at all.
Wallcovering is practical.
…more than just great looking, wallcovering can be your secret design weapon. Use it to cover less than perfect walls, or to trick the eye: vertical stripes for the appearance of height, for instance.
Take a hint from your home.
The style and age of your home can help you define your most appropriate wallcovering choices. An antique, period home may call for historically inspired patterns and colors. Big, bold graphics and rich textures fit more casual, contemporary spaces.
Above all, wallcovering is a sophisticated choice that adds incredible design depth.
