Columbia Heights Wallpaper

 

I love it when designers go out on their own with a handful of products and sell them online. This husband and wife team were unsatisfied with the selection of textiles and wall coverings available and decided to do just that. They hand screen the wallpaper and also do custom colors.

The caveat: In design school, estimating wall paper was my least favorite task. It involves fairly complicated formulas depending on the repeat of the pattern and number of windows you have in your room, double roll/triple roll…Then there’s the installation. And if you don’t purchase the rolls from the same dye-lot, the colors can vary slightly and ruin the entire effect. It’s not a nice process. Anyway, this is not a great DIY project unless you really know what you’re doing. It’s best to find a professional and they can end up saving you money in the long run. Especially if they get you a discount on the purchase.

(Thanks Amanda!)
