Hanging wall paper can dramatically change the appearance and look of a room. With so many styles, colors and patterns to choose from you can quickly create vibrancy, serenity, warmth, and ambiance depending upon what you choose.

There are many reasons to choose wall paper over paint, the most obvious being style, wall paper can also add texture and pattern. So think about the particular look or feeling you would like to evoke. Also the degree of durability can make a wall paper appropriate or not appropriate for certain installations. Most common catagories are:

  • Paper
  • Vinyl coated paper
  • Fabric backed vinyl
  • Silks, fabrics, grasscloths
  • Foils

All require different type of installation

Textile remnants from garment factories have been transformed into colorful gift wrap.

It is a great way to recycle old fabric scraps, and create tree-free paper.
