What do wall coverings and the Yowie have in common?
- Australia invented the snow plow and ice skating
- Don Bradman was actually a robot built by the CSIRO
- Wallpaper comes in brown or beige and hasn’t changed since 1974
- Right now, a Yowie may be sniffing around your backyard barbeque
These are just some of the myths that you may encounter during your time here on earth. Whilst we can’t rule out the prospect of a Yowie grabbing a succulent sausage at your next barbeque, we can completely stamp out the myth that wallpaper hasn’t changed since the 70’s. In fact, there has been a revolution in wall coverings and they are now at the forefront of modern interior design. So let’s look at some of the myths that persist when it comes to wallpaper, rubbing them out for good and ensuring that you are free to indulge your senses at the huge range available through Hume Internationale.
Myth #1: Some people will tell you wallpaper is not ‘it’
Look around – wherever you turn the evidence is in plain sight. Check out TV, magazines, web sites and display homes. Walls are being covered with creative patterns and designs that bring rooms to life. The minimalist plain wall is disappearing, rapidly being replaced by an explosion of cutting edge designs and trends. People want more out of their walls, so they are turning to the contemporary wall covering collections available at Hume Internationale.
Myth #2: Wallpaper was big in the 70’s and only works in psychedelic colours, nanna prints or velour
Hey, the 70’s were a long time ago! Were ipods invented then? Did you lie against the nanna prints talking on your mobile phone while you watched your favourite movie in blue ray? The shag pile is gone and wallpaper has evolved. The world’s most contemporary designers work all year round to bring you amazing products that will blow your mind. Walls are being transformed into modern statements that bring verve and personality to your home or business.
Myth #3: Some people will tell you wallpaper is hard to coordinate
Your first instinct is the best: just look around the room. Pick a colour, pick a fabric pattern, pick a texture from your room before you start looking at our collections and we will have something that will not only complement your space, but will uplift it. Hume Internationale can help you find what you need quickly and easily.
Myth #4: Some people will tell you wallpaper is not attractive
Wow – talk about out of touch! Look around our web site, you will find it hard to leave without buying something from one of our collections. In fact, some people fall in love with several wall
coverings and use them effectively throughout their premises. We’ve got the colours, we’ve got the designs, we’ve got the textures that will make your jaw drop. You can salivate, but don’t hesitate!
Myth #5: Some people will tell you wallpapering is hard
We love this one. To be fair, wallpapering used to take some work, but like every other thing that exists on the planet today we have worked at it and made it so easy. Can you handle a 3 step process? Paste the wall, cut the paper to size and stick it on. It’s that simple. We’ve seen 11 year old kids cover a wall without a single crease or bump. But if you are time poor or want some help, don’t worry, we’ve got industry professionals who can do it all for you if you like.
Myth #6: Some people will tell you wallpaper cannot be removed
In the old days everything was made to last, including wallpaper glue. Now we live in a changing world and we have miraculous glue that will keep your wall coverings on the wall, but also give you the flexibility to peel them off when you are ready to change. Wall coverings have become a fashion item… put them up, pull them down, put a new design up whenever you like. There’s simply no reason for walls to ever be dull again!
