We recently stayed in a very hip hotel in NYC hotel where all of the halls were wrapped in a rich espresso brown ostrich skin. Of course, this chic and luxurious look was not accomplished with real ostrich skin, that would have been an atrocity! The design was done with a faux effect wallpaper, one that authentically created the organic beauty of an exotic leather with PETA approved tactics. Achieving a faux effect with wallpaper is often much easier and less costly way to get the decor look you desire, without sacrificing any of the texture, color or architectural impact. Having walls wrapped in leather – even rare animal skins like crocodile or snake skin is very modern and striking. Revamping walls with a completely new material, like tile, rustic wood, stones or brick can also be achieved well with wallpaper. With rich textured embosses, lavish printing techniques and artistic ink finishes, an exceptional wallpaper can create a completely new identity for your walls. Wallpaper is the fabric of your homes outfit, and it is not limited to patterns like flowers, stripes and damasks. These faux wallpapers are easy to install and oh-so-chic.
For a space that is rustic or modern, for a masculine room or an industrial loft space, faux leather wallpaper creates a sophisticated allure. Leather looks are intriguing, powerful and timeless.
Stones and bricks are very fashionable for walls. From a country chateau to a contemporary, open floor plan or a feng shui design, layering stone and brick textures into a room adds a chic interest. Wish you had an exposed brick wall, or want to create a soothing river rock detail? Shop trompe l’oeil wall murals and high relief embossed wallpapers, even paintable designs, to get the look.
A wood texture for walls is rustic-chic, re-imagining the surface of your walls with the authentic, natural charm of wood. Whether you would like to create a log cabin country warmth, or a more eclectic reclaimed feel, wood panel wallpaper can instantly capture the look of wood panels without a contractor.
Tiles are a beautiful way to add texture, color and patterned intrigue to a space. Especially popular in kitchen and bathroom decor, a tiled finish can increase the value and appeal of a home. However, tiling your walls can be a very expensive and labor intensive process. These tile wallpaper designs can genuinely replicate the look and feel of actual tiles, sea glass, porcelain, mosaic tiles, or terra cotta.
