Remember when wallpaper used to be that weird flocked-pattern thing on the walls of your grandparents’ house? Today wallpaper is much more than a wall covering; it can set the tone of the whole room.
And it is so easy to apply, you can put it up and take it down whenever the mood strikes.
You could gaze at snowy birch trees to evoke a European winter, or if you’re dreaming of travel, how about a view over the Paris skyline, or down the Almalfi Coast? For something more generic, choose a forest, country garden, oriental pavilion or painted landscape.
For children the list is exhaustive: mermaids, pirates, sea creatures, dogs, cats, fairies, space – you could turn a bedroom into a dreamworld.
You can even choose your own design, using a favourite photo of a special place, family member or group of friends.
Manufactures such as Wallsauce.com can turn almost any image into a unique wall covering. Simply upload your image on the website and it will check the quality of the file before you input your wall’s dimensions.
The wallpapers are all made-to-measure to fit any wall in any home, and supplied in panels just like wallpaper.
Prices start at around $50AUD per square metre (the company is in the UK but will ship to Australia). To get inspired, visit www.wallsauce.com
