Hello spring, hello wallpaper!

Speak about drama! This large damask pattern 
from Graham & Brown looks amazing coupled 
with coloured glass. 
Welcome spring into your home with cheery wallpaper! I've said it before and I'll say it again: one papered wall is all you need for a dramatic effect.

If you are still unsure if wallpaper is for you, try it in a small space or in a room that you don't use so often, like a hallway or your dining room. Don't go bold if you don't want to. Subtle is also fine. Believe me, there are papers out there for all tastes!

Next week I'll tell you how you can visually change the dimensions of a room with wallpaper. In the meantime, I hope these fresh, clean designs, as seen at Stradwick's and Stewart's in North Bay, will inspire you to take the leap!

This blue-and-white interior with a slightly cottagy feel 
just screams spring! Clarke & Clarke Viva Collection.
And here is the same paper in
warm citrus and grey.

Who says wallpapers are old fashioned? 
Big patterns, especially, have a decidedly 
modern vibe, like this black-and-beige 
floral from Clarke & Clarke's Showstoppers 
The same paper in lovely, spring-like colours.
Another blue-and-white paper with a pale 
summer look. Clarke & Clarke's Showstopper
And here's the same paper in a more contrasting
colour combination. 
For all lovers of pink...

This is a completely different kind of paper,
very graphic and stark. Clarke & Clarke 
Viva collection.
If you prefer a more subtle paper, this
beige on beige with lots of sheen is an
elegant alternative. The paper will be
more or less apparent depending on the
lighting conditions. Graham & Brown.
The same paper in a beautiful turquoise 
and beige combination.
