A fresh look at your walls with stylish wall décor

You know it’s not too far away. You can sense in your daily stroll, the air starts to smell different, the days are getting longer, and nature starts to come out from its wintery slumber.  Spring! We’ve been waiting for it with such anticipation, after the cold of the long winter months, and it’s finally about to arrive in the northern hemisphere. Of course, the terrible news of the last few weeks are dampening the mood a bit, especially as we finally seem to be able to leave behind the worst of the pandemic, but this is even more of a reason to enjoy what we have and appreciate beauty. As you probably already know, spring is the ideal season to redecorate your home: it’s not too hot, yet the balmy temperature allows you to leave the windows open to let the walls dry. The hours of daylight increase at a svelte pace, and this allow us to undertake some domestic chores and projects during the workweek as we come home. It’s a grand time to leave the worries of the world behind us and undertake a nice little decoration job, perhaps of your own living room. This room is after all one of the busiest spaces in the house. After a few years a little decoration and renovation work can do wonder for it.

The question is how far you are willing to go and invest to improve its appearance. Ideally, we want to avoid spending too much money but at the same time being able to end up with something that will bring a fresh air and atmosphere. After all, we live in an age where social media is constantly throwing up immaculate and clever interior design solutions at us. You only have to look at a Pinterest page or some influencer’s posts on Instagram to realise that expectations are higher, and a simple coat of paint or a couple of posters can no longer suffice. If we want to renew our living room, we need something able to carry a bit more of a punch than a simple lick of paint. A solution for many spaces can be for example a feature wall decorated with a designer wallpaper with a stunning graphic pattern. This is a concept that can concentrate all design needs in a central focal point, leaving the rest of the room to be filled with more mundane practicalities and without the need to renew the furniture.

This interior decoration has evolved considerably thanks to technological development and is now quite different from the fragile and delicate paper decoration you remember from your grandparents’ room. New materials have made wallpaper far easier to install and remove, and it is now much more durable and easier to clean. As a matter of fact, many models can be wiped clean with a damp cloth, removing any stains with ease. As we live in the 21st century, our options are no longer limited to the hardware store down the road, but we are able to browse through a vast range of online wallpaper retailers offering a large selection of wallpapers divided into a wide variety of categories. Whether you want something minimalist, opt for a large graphic pattern or a material with a tactile surface, paint the variety of options is simply staggering. If you are sold on the idea, let’s take a look at how to prepare yourself to your decoration work.
