Home Living : May 22nd 2012
MB HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, May 22, 2012 1 IDEAS OFF THE WALL BIG RANGE FOR DECORATORS Susan Redman Details: larkmade.com.au; uniquefabrics.com; and duckeggblue.com.au Porcelain wallpaper, by Studio Ditte, from Lark online. WALLPAPER HANGING TIPS 1. Hang art'' wallpapers with pins or tacks or hang from a track like an artpiece. 2. For wallpapers with life- sized images, allow each roll to curl at the ground level. 3. Cut out parts of the papers in a shape and float'' it on the wall. 4. Put up wallpapers that are water-resistant in bathrooms or laundries. 5. Wallpaper inside double- door wardrobes. 6. Create your own papers by asking digital imaging agencies for a large print out. 7. Cover boxes with your favourite papers. 8. Make a mural or collage and intersect rolls with a complementary design. 9. Find a photo-mural from the '70s and paste it in a narrow hallway. 10. Try islander barks or Japanese rice papers. OFF-WHITE walls will be a thing of the past if wall- paper artisans have their way. With the advent of digital imaging and superior paper stocks, combined with new processes for hanging pa- pers and removing them, wallpapers are the top-shelf show ponies in a decorator's tool kit. The unbearably cute, on- line store Lark stocks a range of papers that are suitable for both children's and family rooms. Look at the fresh and youthful wall- papers of Dutch firm Studio Ditte, which are often re- peat patterns of quirky mo- tifs from buttons to robots and china plates at their online store. British label Andrew Martin has an inspiring col- lection of wallpaper themes that often play with mid- century UK pop culture. A new range has log stacks, libraries and pan- elled leather, a quirky mix of establishment and mod- ern metaphor designs avail- able through Unique Fab- rics, Paddington. Deborah Bowness is an- other Brit whose hand- printed wallpaper designs have a distinct vintage edge. Seen any great ideas?
