Kathy Basil from Hirshfield’s design studio realizes that not only is it trending, but it’s become a necessary addition to your home. Wallcoverings are flying off the shelves and onto feature walls, half bathrooms, children’s rooms, master bedrooms and anywhere you want a little charm and bold personality.
