Wallpaper Installation Brookfield – Brisbane

We recently installed wallpaper at Brookfield in Brisbane for our client Abbey had a vision for her bedroom that was finally realised with the installation of her black and white striped wallpaper.
She is an architectural student who also has a huge passion for interior decorating. Not only that but she loves recycling pieces of furniture and making her own lamps and photo frames. The mirror above her bed was an old find that was painted silver to fit in with her colour scheme. Being only 19 we think she has tremendous talent and will go a long way.

Black and white striped wallpaper always looks good and particularly suits contemporary styles. Here Abbey has used some classic pieces and blended them together with modern pieces to create a glamorous look. Below we show the before and after photos of the installation.

Black and white stripes are always popular due to the fact that they can look great in a classic setting or a very contemporary space.

Below we show Kim Kardashian’s home where she has used black and white stripes quite extensively. In fact her whole house has wallpaper in every room as shown in InStyle

The Piano Room

Kourtney Kardashian: “This was the dining room when we moved in and it evolved into a ‘whatever’ room. The piano was in my parent’s house since I was born and my mom gave it to me. The black and white chairs were also in my house as a child and I had them redone. The hot pink chaise was Khloe’s-she didn’t want it. I said to her, ‘I’m going to redo this and you’re going to regret it.’ And she does.”

The Living Room

Jeff Andrews:”A black and white color scheme anchors the room with touches of bright color that tie it all together. The black and white horizontal stripes on the wall make the room appear larger, while the multi-custom pendants I designed give it height. The coffee table was a fabulous vintage find of Kourtney’s, as were many of the accessories and art. Kourtney’s main priority was that the room feel whimsical and unique, with an Alice-In-Wonderland surrealism to it.”

Stripes will fit in with any space but choosing the right width is important for the size of the room. A larger room requires wider stripes. Thin stripes in a large room just creates a cluttered distracting look as the lines will tend to blend together. Wide stripes in a small room become overwhelming and lose their impact.
We’ve found a great article at Decoist showing sophisticated black and white stripes and how to use them.

There’s a lot to consider when choosing to go black and white. Lets start with the thickness of your stripes – should you go thick or thin? As a general rule of thumb, the thicker stripes will have a more modern look, and the thinner a more classic style. That doesn’t mean you can’t mix it up – after all, rules in design are meant for breaking.

Vertical stripe

 

Last but not least here is an article showing many ways to work with stripes on walls. Wallpaper is so versatile and easy to use when wanting the “wow factor”. why not go for a striped wallpaper first. You can’t go wrong with stripes.

Narrow, vertical stripes in opposing light-and-dark colors are all these walls need to stand out. Pair them with some simple, solid furnishings and wood tones, and these stripes become the central artwork in the room  http://www.brit.co/striped-walls/

Wallpaper Installers Brisbane – Covering The Walls Of Brisbane

We have been covering the walls of Brisbane with beautiful wallpaper for years. We have over 30 years of experience when it comes to wallpaper installation in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

We have seen Brisbanites embrace wallpaper! We have seen a big increase in homes and businesses throughout Brisbane and surrounds using wallpaper to great effect.

The average home owner can now give their home an injection of style by using wallpaper. The beauty of wallpaper is that it’s an affordable way to create big impact in a space.
Paint can’t deliver the same “wow factor” that wallpaper can. One feature wall is all that is needed in most cases to create a really visual appealing wall that will completely transform your room.

With so many beautiful wallpaper to choose from, there really is a style to suit all tastes. There are very modern vinyls that are neutral in colour but amazing in texture. Materials such a grass weaves and matting that is very in at the moment. We see a lot of commercial establishments using these wallcoverings as they are unlikely to date but at the same time add a whole new dimension to an area.

Below are two walls we wallpapered in Brisbane using a neutral textured paper. The first wall was where the tv would be and was just the thing to break up the room and draw the eye to a focal point. A lot of people are using wallpaper to highlight a tv alcove. The second wall was a dividing wall that was wallpapered in the same paper. Both walls looked amazing when finished and gave the home an instant modern vibe.

Below is another example of a one colour modern textured wallpaper used in an entry. It highlights the wall perfectly and creates instant visual appeal, so much better than a stark white wall.
The wallpaper is from Arte International and is part of their Boracay Collection. It has amazing texture, it’s made from plants but looks like snakeskin. We include a closeup shot below to give you an idea.

Having seen the wallpaper up close you can see how some wallpapers are effective because of their textures and not necessarily their patterns or designs.

Whilst many businesses across Brisbane choose commercial wallcoverings there are many that want something that will be alive with colour and pattern. Something that will entice their customers in and make them feel instantly relaxed and comfortable. many businesses such as salons, hairdressers, nail bars, boutiques and shops choose a wallpaper that will look on trend and be an accessory to the business. We’ve found damask wallpaper is great for that as shown below.

Installing wallpaper in the bedroom is very popular. we are finding that some people aren’t quite adventurous enough to wallpaper a wall in the living areas yet are quite willing to experiment with wallpaper in the bedroom. However after they fall in love with their bedroom and realise how just one feature wall can transform the whole room they are willing to wallpaper the living room.
There really is no easier way to add the “wow factor” to a space. Even great art work doesn’t have the same impact as wallpaper, if you choose right.

Bedroom wallpaper installation Brisbane

Below is a different contrast to the bedroom above. Where one is sophisticated and moody, the wallpaper below is soft, feminine and romantic. A perfect example of how wallpaper can be so many things in one area.

Another way to add interest to a space is to use wallpaper to highlight an unusual area such as an alcove or partition. Below we used a Cole and Sons wallpaper called Woods to wallpaper a feature wall that extends up to a skylight. It looked very effective and really made the whole area.

The bedroom partition below looks amazing. Wallpapering the divider in a stunning Harlequin wallpaper has made all the difference and created a feature that has transformed this room.

Another very popular trend in wallpaper today is the use of faux finish wallcoverings such as brick wallpaper, wood wallpaper and concrete look wallpaper.
Below is an example of a brick wallpaper we installed to an area underneath stairs in a Brisbane highset home.
