Wallpaper packs a powerful punch, but when adding it as a fundamental layer in any sophisticated design scheme, its reputation is still one of being tired and dated. While out-of-fashion patterns and shabby chic borders can make a room look uninspired, modern wallpaper can have a dramatic positive effect on a space. Pattern, design, and textures add a certain depth and drama that you just can’t achieve with paint.
Wallpaper patterns like this one help interior designers add character and individuality.
Lita Dirks & Co, the interior design team bringing The NEXTadventure™ Home to life, are playing with this design trend as they finish this showcase single family home designed for the 55 and better demographic. “Technological innovations means a dramatically improved quality of wallpaper available,” they say. “Companies can produce on paper or fabric, pushing design forward in ways we couldn’t do before.”
The team is using wallpaper in The NEXTadventure™ Home to pique interest in a variety of clever places. Large patterns in small powder rooms or drawing focus to an accent wall in a bedroom are just two of the ways wallpaper can make a statement.
If you still identify wallpaper with your grandma’s kitchen, it’s time for a new perspective.
Add depth to your overall design by layering interesting patterns and textures. Make waves in home design with creative application of modern papers and fabrics. High-tech or hand-screened wallpapers open up a plethora of opportunities for your personality and flavor to shine through.
