  1. I LOVE the custom wallpaper idea. I have a space that is just crying out for a wall sized image. I’m also quite intrigued with the textured wallpaper as well. I think it can add interest while slightly altering the acoustical properties of a room as well. Great ideas guys!

      Hey John!

      As far as the textured wallpaper idea goes, there was certainly a rising trend around tile for walls that brought out that 3-D look not too long ago. In that case, it was about adding a new way for light to play off of walls, as well as that tactile dimension as well. Textured wallpaper allows this same kind of dimension.

      I too love the custom wallpaper idea. This site seems to have a few funky ideas on what may be perfect for your space.

      Thanks for comments!
