Wall panels

Stikwood

So…wood walls, yes or no? If your ‘no’ has aesthetic reasons, then I’ve got some images that might change your mind. If your answer is ‘yes, but…’ then join the club. Often wood walls are struck off the to-do list because of cost and installation, yet with the product Stikwood suddenly we’re thinking ‘hey, I could do that.’ Stikwood is just like its name- you stick the wood onto whatever surface you want. It’s got a peel-and-stick backing that makes it easy to attach, whether on a wall, ceiling, or furniture. How exactly does it work? Here’s the installation instructions. And, if you’re still not intrigued, here are a few images for inspiration (note: below images aren’t Stikwood products, just wood wall inspiration).

Palihouse Hotel

Last night I was at a party in Hollywood and ofcourse, rather than socializing, I was making mental notes of the interior selections. I really liked the casual feel of the place. Probably the most interesting selection was the ‘wallpaper’ above the mantle. From afar, it looked like a flocked, mustard colored wallpaper, but upon closer inspection, the wall was actually cork, and appeared to be hand-stamped with a pattern in silver paint.

Modular Arts Wall Panels

This is an excellent picture of how well wall panels can create a truly unique environment.

“Cementitious, mineral composites have been favored by architects and designers around the world for their superior fire properties, relative light weight, and absence of harmful, off-gassing content. We feel that wall surfacing, which exposes large areas to potential fire hazard and circulated air should be safe: noncombustible and free of formaldehyde.”

-32″ by 32″ repeating panels for continuous surfaces of any size
-100% mineral, non-combustible, class A
-easily installed by finish carpenters

So here’s an idea to change up a space…these Chrome panels can be lined up or used alone or (!) you could even mount them on a ceiling for an extra-special effect. Light weight and easy installment insures that it’ll be quick transformation, and the price tag doesn’t hurt either.
