Wallpapers… We’ve Come a Long Way, Baby! (Part 2 – Texture)
Many modern wallpapers now give the appearance of a textured finish. Some of the finishes that were once reserved for textiles or faux finish painting can now be achieved through the use of clever wallpaper creations. The options are seemingly endless!
For instance, take a look at wallpaper designer, Phillip Jeffries! He even has a quilted pattern that looks “oh so Coco Chanel!”
And how about wallpapers that look like metal…. even gold leaf with verdis?! Really!? Jeffries even makes a paper that looks like the steel in this refrigerator or the copper in this range hood!
Phillip Jeffries also makes wallpapers with lacquered finishes like the finish found on traditionally lacquered walls.
Another company that produces some amazing textural wallpapers is Thibaut. In fact, they have a series of books called Texture Resource.
…Leathers (that remind me of this FAB Hancock & Moore glider, by the way!)….
…And even FABRICS! There are wallpapers that resemble linen, such as the fabric found in this tablecloth…
Silks are also a lovely choice for wallpaper texture…
Here is a gorgeous room featured in House Beautiful that showcases a textured wallcovering by Phillip Jeffries…
Regardless of the choice of wallpaper texture, there is no doubt that adding a pattern creates movement and interest in a space! So, play with it! Have some fun. You will have people asking… HOW did they DO that!?
NOW, GO HAVE AN “It’s So Fabulous!” DAY!
