was never such a fan of wallpaper. The first thing that springs to mind when I think of wallpaper are walls covered in over-the-top old-school flower patterns, granny-style. But these days there are so many amazing wallpapers available, be it designer-style or DIY-projects. I see walls covered with old newspapers, roadmaps, sheet-music and vintage bookpages, very original.
Whilst browsing the net the other day, I stumbled upon the website of NLXL.com. They manufacture wallpapers with very realistic concrete and scrapwood patterns, designed by Dutch designers Piet Boon and Piet Hein Eek respectively. With these wallpapers you can transform a boring stucco wall into vintage wood or sleek modern concrete.
NLXL also brings the Brooklyn Tins collection, designed by Merci. Historically, tin ceilings were introduced to North America around 1890 as an affordable alternative to the exquisite plaster work used in European homes. Today the irregularity and aging give all the appeal to this American architecture icon.
The French company Elitis also has some amazing wallpapers, turning walls into works of art covered in Indian silks (the Kandy collection) or fake panelling (the Chance collection).
