{wallcovering wednesday: easy up and easy down with sure strip}

If you’ve shied away from wallpaper in the past because you were worried about the paste and the mess, York has a paper for you. And if you avoid wallpaper because you hate trying to take it down later – you’ll like it even better. Prepasted wallcoverings aren’t new, but York’s Sure Strip® goes one step further. This high-performance paper is prepasted to go up easily and come down in one piece – guaranteed.

York says Sure Strip® wallcoverings are easier to install and easier to remove, because they are manufactured with a unique, high-performance substrate and special adhesive. When wet, the high-performance material acts more like a large sticker than an old-fashioned wallpaper. It smooths effortlessly on the wall and removes in full strips when it’s time to redecorate.

Brewster Brings the Bohemian Chic with Kismet Collection

For those of you who survived the 80s decorating palette, it may be difficult for you to think you’d ever plaster another room with wallpaper. Remember the flowery patterns and the bold (let’s call them vivid) colors? Yikes, I think we all still remember some atrocious patterns in bedrooms, kitchens and dining rooms across the Twin Cities.

Wallpaper Wednesday: Hot Wallpaper Prints, Colors and Textures for 2015

Wallpaper continues to gain popularity with homeowners and designers. Here is our look at wallpaper trends for 2015 – the hot colors, prints and textures – from some of the top manufacturers.

Blue Mountain Wallcoverings

“2015 will bring the bold and the beautiful,” according to Blue Mountain Wallcoverings, with patterns on a larger scale and upbeat color pairings. “Blue Mountain’s 2015 collections boast a provocative and eclectic mix of large-scale patterns in sophisticated palettes of citron brights, classic neutrals and deep indigos, creating a home that is both playful and refined.”

York Wallcoverings

“Rich jewel tones have reached new pinnacles of popularity,” says Gina Shaw, vice president of new product development for York Wallcoverings. “Blue is stunning combined with analogous shades like teal and bottle green, as well as contrasting hues. It’s great for grounding an otherwise light and airy room.”

“We are increasingly finding new inspiration in opulent architecture and design rooted in the traditions of faraway places,” she says. “It’s become easier for people travel to exotic destinations and, by creating wallpapers with a global sensibility, we make it possible to bring a piece of those places home with them.”

Seabrook Wallcoverings

“Everything floral is in full bloom in fashion and interior design,” says Suzanne Ashley, director of product development for Seabrook Wallcoverings. “Look for an abundance of flowers in all varieties, styles, and scales to impact wallcovering, especially in watercolor techniques.” Additional influences include textures found in nature, from feathers and fossils to bamboo and cork.

Regarding color trends, she says, “the big story is BLUE – all shades. Most important is navy, with some calling it the new black. The newest blues are the deep shades – like marine blue, which is navy with a hint of green.”

“Feature walls are a wonderful way for people to incorporate the colors and pattern that they love without overwhelming the room,” according to Brewster Wallpaper. “Feature walls are especially popular in the bedroom behind the bed, in dining rooms, nurseries, and used to create a special focal point in an entryway.” Brewster also says bright palettes, vivid florals, and modern geometrics will continue to be on trend, as well as global chic designs with exotic Moroccan influences.

Patton Wallpaper

Patton Wallpaper sees seafoam, aqua and light purple as trending colors for 2015, along with the classic neutral black. Gold and silver metallics add shiny accents to wallcovering patterns, or standing on their own, and ”vintage damasks are seeing a resurgence in popularity, along with florals.” Patton also sees surface prints, papers with a slight embossing or raised texture, as a trend in 2015., “and grasscloth is a classic that never goes out of style and always adds that extra layer of color and texture to a room.”

Washington Wallpaper

Lattices, damasks, and geometrics will be hot in 2015, according to Washington Wallpaper: “classic patterns that customers understand and look familiar to them, but are freshened up with a modern twist.” The updated textures show depth, which adds another layer of texture to a room without making a huge statement. “Grasscloth is huge, from tasteful naturals, to glammed up papers with a pearlized finish and metallic accents.”

Ontario Wallcoverings

Grasscloth is also one of the trends that Ontario Wallcoverings identified. “Grasscloth has always been a go-to wallpaper. We’re seeing a resurgence in its popularity with our current grasscloth book, and we’re working on the release of another grasscloth book this year.” In addition, Ontario sees another trend emerging: “We have also noticed that there has been a move from the traditional look to that of contemporary in many regions.”
