Wallpaper is back baby, and it’s not going away soon. There are so many great new wallpapers out there, awesome contemporary patterns and prints. Wallpaper adds instant character, makes a statement, and completely changes the energy of a room, all without taking up any space.
One of the coolest companies out there is The Detroit Wallpaper Co., which has grown quickly because of their awesomeness. Their website is super innovative, where you can customize every pattern with about 80 of their defined colors and see the pattern update before your eyes. They also sell rugs that match, and now their doing tables and accessories as well. Here are but a few examples of their papers…
Another really cool company is Rollout from Toronto. They say they “push the limits of how graphics and technology are applied to space”, and that my friends speaks to me. Rollout does a lot of commercial work (as does Detroit Wallpaper), but they’re worth consideration if your project is large enough. Here are just a few of their fab designs…
Rollout’s client list is really impressive as are the variety of materials they print with, including (but not limited to):
- Metallic Vinyl
- Opaque & Transparent Window Film
- Floor Vinyl with Anti-Skid Lamination
- Metallic Leafing
- 3D printing
Some more traditional manufacturers are also doing beautiful, contemporary prints. Companies like Graham & Brown, Farrow & Ball, Wall & Deco, Barnaby Gates, and Marburg to name a few. These are two from Graham & Brown…
It’s true I like skulls, but this lattice print is also gorgeous!
Then I get really excited about Wall & Deco. They are so fantastic, I could go on and on… but here are five that I love…
The point is that when you’re redecorating any room in the house, wallpaper is a functional alternative to paint, helping transform the space into an experience. And there are so many great brands doing such exciting things!
Bottom line: this isn’t your grandma’s wallpaper anymore.
