It seems like there was a time in the not too distant past that wallcovering was considered very passÃ©. Maybe it’s because the popular papers of the 70s and 80s were a bit…well…shall we say visually cacophonous. This wallcovering, only recently removed one of the offices in my place of employ, comes to mind:
I know, yikes.
But I’ve had complete faith that when well-designed and well used, wall covering is still a fantastic tool to help bring life into a space. Last week over at From the Right Bank, Ally featured a bit of wall covering from Schumacher that was covered in whimsical, unique line drawings of famous Paris monuments. I thought it was fantastic.
I ventured on over to the Schumacher site to see what other types of wall covering they had, and holy moly did I hit the wall covering and fabric jackpot. It’s really a shame that we don’t plan on buying a home any time soon, because there are SO many amazing designs I’d love to play with. Either that, or I need a new upholstery project, quick.
From the timeless to the very bold, Schumacher’s got you covered. Most of the designs I liked came from the modern collection. Here are some of my favorites:
If you’re working on an upholstery project or thinking about putting up some wall covering, have a look at their site. If nothing else, you might find some inspiration!
