Interior design preferences come and go over the years, but wall covering choices have always come down to paint vs. wallpaper.  Fortunately, wallpaper is back — and in a big way!

Wallpaper can be a smart choice for an interior.  While the initial investment is higher, wallpaper retains its good looks for many years longer than paint.  Painted walls must be cleaned and repainted regularly.  Wallpaper, on the other hand, tends to look as beautiful after several years as it did the day it was installed.  Additionally, wallpaper choices are limitless!  So many colors, patterns, and images to choose from, not to mention the custom options for the client who wants something truly unique.

This is not your grandmother’s wallpaper!  Today’s choices include a wide range of embellishments and textures.  I love the idea of a wallpaper that people can’t resist touching as they wonder if it’s paint, fabric, or paper.
