Now you can paint your walls in 3D with Patent Décor
Back in the 1990’s, we were shaking our junk to the beat of Beastie Boys, Destiny’s Child and for a short while Hanson (MMM Bop). Then suddenly, we took down our posters of Eminem and Ricky Martin to cover our walls in paint. Monochrome walls were everywhere, huge blocks of neutral colour began paving the way for wall-mounted plasmas and Bose speakers. It seemed that the paintbrush would rule forever, then creative interior design started to claw its way back. Today wallpaper has made a remarkable resurgence, bringing bold new designs and innovative products into the marketplace. But for times when you just have to paint, you can turn to a great product called Patent Décor. It’s a fully paintable range of hearty textures and captivating patterns that can take you way beyond the two dimensional world of flat colour.

Homespun elegance is the key to the Mystique X wallpaper collection by Brewster
You can almost hear the sea spray racing off a Long island beach, whipping up to meet the grand old homes on the North Shore of Nassau County. These old money estates carry distant echoes of the grace and sophistication of a bygone era. Their high walls are wrapped in the subtle florals and warm tones reproduced in the Mystique X Collection from Brewster, the logical successor to the Mystique IX range that so embodied the rural charms of American living.

Wall Lover uses wallpaper to add style to a small space
Christina Coop loves wallpaper. In fact, she gave her Victorian Era apartment a modern makeover through innovative use of wallpaper. She even saves wallpaper scraps and remnants and uses them on all kinds of surfaces in her apartment. To keep her pad interesting and cohesive, she uses different wallpapers in each room but keeps the design and colour scheme fairly consistent. She did such a good job, she was featured in Better Homes & Gardens.
