Move Over, Paint—Wallcoverings Transcend Trends

These four wall-covered spaces embody the unlimited potential of thinking beyond the paint can.

When it comes to the walls of a space—which not only separate the space from other rooms but also anchor the eye as the backdrop—wallcoverings bring a richness and warmth that paint just cannot accomplish. To simply paint the walls leaves a flat, cold surface, which is only a great option if the homeowner wishes to display a museum-quality art collection. Whether it’s a showstopping ultra-suede or a textured neutral, wallcoverings add so much more dimension and interest to a space. Not to mention: They break the minimal, all-white mold of current cookie-cutter trends.
