Design Trend: The Revival of Wallpaper

Design Trend: The Revival of Wallpaper

Wallpaper is back and has never been better! Well, to be honest, wallpaper never left it just wasn’t as widely used. Today, even your favorite home furniture retailers carry their own lines of wallpaper.  In one of our recent builds in Geneva, our client chose a texturized wallpaper in a beautiful blue/gray color that runs all the way up to the second floor foyer. The soft grasscloth-like surface is the perfect contrast to the white, wood trim. While the wallpaper makes a statement, it is neutral enough to layer with pictures and artwork.
