Since the festive season has now quietened and life is slowly but surely getting back into a routine it is the perfect time to assess the New Year in the world of home decor. What has been officially chosen as the colour of 2020? What simple decor changes shall we be making around the house?
The day has come. Your wallpaper has just arrived in the post. You’re staring at your blank wall... you’ve now realised that you have no idea how to put your new wallpaper up. After getting carried away scrolling through pages and pages of beautiful, high quality wallpaper, it’s easy to forget the reality of applying it to your walls. Luckily, that’s what the internet is for! Unfortunately we cannot crawl through the screen and help you put your fabulous paper up but we can sure give you some tips and tricks as to how to get started.
In this first blog post we’ll start with the tools you should consider getting to make your wallpapering experience go a lot more smoothly.
Today’s blog post gains its inspiration from a platform which us at World of Wallpaper are LOVING at the moment; Houzz. For those unfamiliar with the site, Houzz is an interior design, ‘social-media-like’ website used by homeowners looking for home decor inspiration, businesses exhibiting their design projects, and nosey people like me who just enjoy scrolling through pictures of other people’s immaculate homes. Not only can you get lost scrolling through people’s kitchens for hours, you can also get involved in discussions with professionals and other home-owners, exchanging words of advice for your own or others design projects.
As the weather gets colder and the days get darker winter is starting to feel like its creeping closer and closer. However, before that time we have *personally* the best season of all to enjoy; Autumn! Halloween, Bonfire Night, cosy nights in, what’s not to love? After the annual disappointment of having to double guess the English summer weather, autumn gives us the perfect opportunity to dress up warm and excuses us to wear our comfiest outfits outside of the comfort of our homes. Best of all, autumn gives we home lovers the excuse to redesign our living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens to match the themes of the season. Say hello to warmer colour tones, decorative fireplaces and homage’s to nature.
