Wall applications

Artware Editions: Wallpaper

It’s entirely overwhelming to absorb just how great these wallpapers are. The prices will make you cry, but man-oh-man, they sure would make a small room look amazing. There’s not enough room to put in each artist’s statement, so please do take a look at the website.

Sheba in Bubblegum wallpaper

I love this Sheba In Bubblegum wallpaper from Flavor Paper. It would be great on an accent wall. I would also really like it in black.

Walldesign by Jasmina Cibic

I’m loving this subtle wallpaper with stark hand drawings of the wall trophy art by Jasmina Cibic.

Sunday families and hunting trophies. Photo souvenirs. The delicate lines of Jasmina Cibic settle on paper, crystallizing a moment of glory. Repeat to infinity, for a wallpaper in limited edition.

Henry Wallpaper by Marcel Wanders

This Henry wallpaper appears textured by using clear glossed stripes mixed in with matte stripes. Pretty fantastic.

Genuine Fake Bookshelf Wallpaper

If you were interested, I found the wallpaper from Abigain Ahern’s amazing house.

The papers are hand printed and designed by Deborah Bowness and there are some interesting options, like my favorite Illusions of Grandeur, which features a fake mirror and chandelier.

Tetris Tiles

I probably played Tetris for hours on end in 6th grade. I have been reacquainted with Tetris recently while at a friend’s house who still has her old Nintendo, so it’s great to see it being used here in a home application. I’m not quite sure it would be a match in my home, but I do really love the idea. Perfect for a kids bath perhaps?

Space Mural

In the right home, and on the right wall–this astronaut mural just might work. Think hallways or on a small wall. Mount it flush with the bottom of the floor and paint the rest of the wall above it a matte black.

Custom Wallpaper via Flavor Paper

I just found out that Flavor Paper does custom wallpaper. Astek has been doing custom wallpaper for a while but it’s nice to know that there’s another resource. Flavor Paper can even customize inks if you’re going for a specific color that may be difficult to match.

Ace Hotel-Portland

I love the Ace Hotel. I’ve stayed at the one in Seattle, and they’ve really done a great job of taking a rough, existing space and making it comfortable. There is also a sense that it can be done on a limited budget because the treatments aren’t complicated. They start with spartan digs and work smartly with space and paint to create ‘zones’ and then add a few decorative elements.

I especially like how they’ve chosen this dark color to separate the bath space from the rest of the room. In a residential situation, a sink in the bedroom isn’t ideal, but the use of paint to create zones can be utilized in any multi-function situation.

No VOC paint

Indoor air quality is become increasingly important to consumers as we become aware of the dangers of air pollution. One great way to reduce air pollution indoors is by using paints with no VOC (volatile organic compounds). You can get them in a number of color ways, and

I like Freshaire Choice because the not only does the paint itself have no VOC’s but the pigments also have no VOC’s.

Custom Gradient Mosaic Tile

I’m loving this custom gradient tile from Hakatai as seen in the Drury Plaza Hotel. Hakatai has a gradient tool on their website so you can create your own Gradient tile. Pretty stunning.

Inspiration: Wallpaper in an office

I love how the wallpaper is used on one wall in this office. It really creates one unified visual area which really ties the workspace together.
