Crisp white walls is a look that will never age, but if
you're searching for something that will give a bland room
an edginess of sorts, consider adorning the walls with a
splash of colour.
Scandinavian Wallpaper and Decor has just launched
a new technique that is evolving the wallpaper industry, so
if your preconception of wallpaper consists of paisley and
patterned velours, you're due for a refresher course.
"We are creating personal walls for all personalities
using a new, digital printing techniques," says Ann-Louise
Lollo Jansson, director of Scandinavian Wallpaper and
Decor. "The latest collections are called Creativity and
PhotoArt, which resulted from the possibilities this new
technique gives us."
Creativity is a collection filled with colourful and striking
designs that will give new meaning to feature walls. Ann-
Louise deems PhotoArt as more art than photo as it uses
beautiful photographic designs and creates the illusion
of more space. According to Ann-Louise, traditional
wallpaper designs generally only use four to six colours
within the same design but with Creativity and PhotoArt,
limitless colours are available.
In the paint realm, Max Bailey of Aalto Colour says
his metallic range is the new look for feature walls. The
metallic look can be subtler compared to the vibrant
colours often used for feature walls, allowing more scope
for surrounding furniture. Not only do they look stylish,
they are hardwearing paints built to last.
