What's up with Wallpaper

Do people still use wallpaper these days? The short answer is yes, but please, let us explain.

We know that wallpaper has scarred homeowners in the past with outdated patterns and adhesives making the entire experience cumbersome and dreaded. Interior white washing can be attributed to the overwhelming tone set by wallpaper trends of the 50’s through the 80’s.

In our already white washed exterior surrounding, known as winter in the Rocky Mountains, us alpine dwellers need to bring a little more color and life into our homes. Yes, interior texturing can be achieved in many ways without wallpaper, but don’t pass up the option too quickly.

Today's selection of wallpaper creates a world of design options with endless amounts of styles and textures, from organic fibers and reclaimed wood, to handmade patterns and colors.

We are proud advocates of safe wallpaper practice in the right space and application.

If you’re beginning to consider the idea of wallpaper for your home, remember that we are here to help. Start by selecting an accent wall in your home, meaning one of the four walls, or even the ceiling that could provide you with a little more personality if given the opportunity. Don’t be afraid to DIY - or if your patterns are more definite like the geometric wallpaper we have used below, consider hiring a professional.

Wallpaper can be bold and create interest in any space without overdoing it.

Check out our projects in progress for examples where wallpaper is used to set the tone for our relaxed lifestyle in a sophisticated way.
