When we moved into our first home, every room was wallpapered except for the living room. This was at a time when wallpaper was going out of style in the late 80’s. And of course it had to go. So we worked for months to steam and scrape every last bit of it off the walls and then spent an equal amount of time patching the cracks that were hiding underneath.
Now, 20 years later wallpaper is all the rage again. And I really like what I’m seeing.
You won’t find the usual Laura Ashley print. Yes, that company is still around. Can you believe it?! Yes, you can still get the traditional grape vines, on a metallic background. This is still very cool. But you’ll also see incredible wall murals from a company called WALL YOU NEED IS LOVE. And if you are a bit skittish about making such a commitment you can try a wall tattoo from SURFACE COLLECTIVE. All very cool and easy to order online.
Check out WALLYOUNEEDISLOVE.com. Their Toronto office is 416-925-5665.
And then check out SURFACECOLLECTIVE.com for wall tattoos from Vancouver. They are offering additional discounts for a limited time.
I think my client, Judith is getting a wall tattoo!
What to do with that clutter tomorrow!
