    WALLPAPERS… New Trends and Innovations

    New trends are leaning toward flock, bead effects, and metallics. Nowadays our clients want papers that have special effects, textures and appear multi-dimensional.


    In decorating, form follows function and the new designs cater to those who like bling! Wallpapers are also best at capturing subtle natural beauty such as the color flow of sunrise or a cloudscape over the ocean. As well, your own favored images are now able to be made into wallpaper.

    Handcrafted wall coverings by top designers are highly desired for their sought-after fine quality and dynamic textures for walls designed to wow!

    Wallpaper innovations in the past few years take into consideration the environment and your health and by including the use of paper from sustainably managed forests approved by FSC (Forest Stewardship Council).

    Designs created with ZeroVOC paints allow for the elimination of traditional petroleum-based inks on non-toxic papers. Focus is on low-odor, natural ingredients instead of ammonia, formaldehyde, xylene, or other harmful ingredients.

    Some use raw materials, naturally occurring pigments in their purest forms allowing for unrivalled depth of color and durability.
