Is wallpaper really a topic to discuss these days? Didn’t that era fade into the past? Many of us remember Grandma’s house, where every wall was plastered in velvet, florals, and stripes. The patterns, while a fond memory, seem so outdated and tacky. On top of that, the hassle to apply and remove has always been known to be dreadful.
Through the years, wallpaper went from being a luxury only the wealthy could afford to a common household accessory. By the 20th century, one could find it in nearly every home. In recent decades, however, it has been on the decline in popularity. Now, with vintage on the rise, wallpaper is making a comeback and it certainly isn’t your grandmother’s wallpaper.
Today’s wallpaper is fresh and sophisticated. While in previous years the focus was on patterns that kept the eye busy, today it’s on a lush design made of alluring textures.
Some local paint stores offer a limited supply of books on wallpaper, but that’s it. They aren’t able to offer advice on design, color, application, or removal. You are left to figure it out on your own with the uncertain hope that you’ve picked the right paper.
Kathy Lathrop is our professional consultant on all things wallpaper. With nearly 20 years of experience in wallpapering, she is a fantastic guide in helping you pick the right paper. She has a great eye for color and design, and can help you with the details of your project.
Some of our consulting services include:
- Paper removal/application
- Different product types
- Color & Design
- Cost estimation
Not only can Kathy help you find the right wallpaper, she can also aid in helping you pull the details of your space together; such as paint-color, fabrics, and flooring. Everyone wants their home to reflect their personal style, and by using our services yours is sure to wow!
The exciting thing about this is the ability to really make a bold statement that is lush and elegant. The new, original patterns and textures allow homeowners to put a charming and unique impact in a space that will truly amaze and delight. The rich colors can inspire an entire household’s décor direction. If the thought of wallpaper is too overwhelming, start simple with an accent wall in your master-bedroom or with an elegant paper in your small powder room.
We work with multiple vendors so we can provide you with the variety of options you’re looking for. You can visit their websites and browse an amazing selection of patterns and textures.
