“To be successful, a room must contain the element of contrast – in forms as well as in colors and textures.” – Michael Taylor
We all know that a coat of paint does wonders for a space and can even make your old stuff appear new. The same can be done using wallpaper. There are tons of affordable options out there and easy installation methods you can employ on your own. One of my favorite wallpaper sites is UK-based Graham and Brown. Their new and improved site is fantastically user friendly. You can search by color, style, designer, brand, or by room usage. Plus, unlike most wallpaper sites, Graham and Brown also provides images of each design in an actual scene making it easier to envision the prints in a room. Here are a few of my favorites
The wallpaper series below is specifically designed for bathrooms and kitchens. The Contour Collection is designed to stand up against high moisture content and are also waterproof. The only place they are not suitable for are shower stalls!
As you peruse the site, you may recognize a few of the patterns from ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition Show. With such a wide selection, choosing a pattern is no easy task. Thank goodness the samples are only $2 each. There are some awesome things you can do with the samples too…stay tuned for more info. Ciao!
