02 Nov Secret Source: Wall & Deco Wallpaper
It’s no secret that I love wallpaper. With all of the advances in printing technology today, there are endless possibilities for wild designs, super vibrant colors and 3-D texture. Unlike a coat of paint, wallpaper adds depth and personality to a space.
One of my favorite resources in the world of wallpaper is Wall & Deco, an Italian company that has totally revolutionized the industry. Their waterproofing system allows you to paper anywhere in a home—showers, kitchen backsplashes, even outdoor spaces. So…freaking…cool.
Wall & Deco’s WET System involves patterns printed on 37-inch-wide fiberglass rolls that are then applied to a wall with primer, adhesive and finally a protective finish. Once installed, the material is resistant to humidity, yellowing, abrasion and harsh cleaning products. What’s more, it can be installed on top of plasterboard, PVC and even ceramic tiles, which means you can opt for a quick change in a space without a full-scale remodel. (That’s a win for anyone on a bit of a budget.)
We all know wallpaper is fabulous inside, but I’m even more obsessed with the idea of wallpaper outside. Wall & Deco’s OUT (Outdoor Unconventional Texture), adds major impact. The prints are graphic, colorful and will take your outside walls up a major notch…who needs boring, ugly siding?
W&D has dozens and dozens of patterns, but here are some of my favorites:
