Off The Wall
Wall applications can be a fun way to add a bold statement to a room or an accent wall. If you are open to making a statement check out some of these "off the wall" ideas!
Well, in this case - not just for a room or an accent wall...but an exterior wall! Wall & Deco's papers can coat exterior building surfaces, including cement, wood, and tile. The waterproof, fire-retardant wallpapers are made of a fiberglass fabric especially for Outdoor Unconventional Texture (OUT).
Paint splattered walls - seeing more and more of this, whether you want to do it yourself or hire an artist, the idea is certainly fun and daring.
Wall decals can always be a quick solution and less permanent. There are many companies that offer a range of colors, numbers, letters, patterns, and collections. Check out What Is Blik for an artful assortment.
Lighting designer Ingo Maurer collaborated with Architects Paper to create the first LED wallpaper – a wall covering equipped with hundreds of LED lights, which can brighten up a room to the equivalent of a 60-watt bulb. The blue, red, and white LED lights use 90% less electricity than a standard lightbulb. Available through architects-paper.com.
Smelly stickers are a thing of the past...now there's scented wallpaper from Flavor Paper, a Brooklyn based company. The banana design is a nod to pop art but you can actually purchase an unscented version. Check out the website for more fun designs.
