{wallcovering wednesday: industrial inspiration}

The hottest look in wallcoverings doesn’t look like wallpaper, at all.  Stone, brick and other industrial inspirations are part of these popular new designs. York’s Urban Chic collection draws on raw, unfinished warehouse looks and street scenes with “Brick”, “Pound the Pavement,” and “Street Art.”

Brewster also jumped on the brick bandwagon, with fantastic photo-murals. These brilliantly realistic brick walls are actually made up of 12’1″x8’2″ murals from their Bricklane collection. The detail is amazing.

Believe it or not, this dramatic floor to ceiling stone wall is also a Brewster photo-mural, with stones so big and bold, it looks like you can reach out and touch them.

  2. {friday finds: incorporating fall colors into your décor – inside and out} | Hirshfield's Color Club Says:

    […] This room has such a warm feel originating from the soft tan walls that keep the lighting low and evoke coziness and warmth. Deep orange, sienna, and mustard yellow plants and leaves have been added to the hanging piece above the table. The natural fall colors of these artificial plants are a simple, inexpensive way to warm up a room in preparation for the next few months. And believe it or not, the beautiful brick above the fireplace is actually a York wallpaper. […]
