Turning Plain Walls into Beautiful Works of Art!

Leather tiling for floors or walls is a gorgeous way to add glamour to any space. They are not only stylish and creative but they will age beautifully! Leather tiles are best used to draw attention to an area. By placing them behind the T.V., the T.V. becomes the focal point of this room. Also, they are great for bring unexpected texture. I love the way these tiles are incorporated with the textures from the ceiling, chandelier, couches, and all the other elements. I love the idea of using leather tiles behind a bed to add emphasis to the space. They are great for making a statement of luxury. These rooms look gorgeous; I love the mirrors for added texture! I also love these Textured Wall Panels. Using these make it easy to create a funky space while maintaining a classic and luxurious feel. How gorgeous would these be in your living room or bedroom? I also love the idea of using  these in a closet!   This is a fabulous company which I have come across, that features textured 3D PU leather tiles. The PU Leather is faux leather that also has a layer of water proof polyurethane.  This fabulous product brings forth a new dimension and concept for interior wall decorating. It enables a designer the ability to enhance flat walls with 3D surfaces that are not only visually rich, but also pleasing and stimulating to the eye.  I love the idea of using this material to transform a children’s play room or even using it in a home theater! Another marvelous company that really struck me was Bueno Glass. This is a form of art that utilizes blown glass to be placed on walls. They offer two different styles one for more rustic interiors which is the Stone Series and another which is more sleek and contemporary, the Silver Series. Despite their differences in appearance, they both are created using the methods of blown hot glass. All of the inspiration for these pieces is taken from nature in its purest for as you can see just simply from looking at the pieces, they are incredibly beautiful and offers an amazing opportunity for you to transform any wall into an open canvas! I hope that learning about these manufactures has inspired you to think about designing walls in a new and creative way! If you would like...

Need to add classic design to a room? Think of adding a vaulted ceiling.

The “moment of truth” for interior designers occurs when we first walk into a room.  Although we often see all sorts of possibilities, what do we do if we feel boxed in? Here’s what I do.  I look up to find the answer; that is, to the ceiling. As a rule, ceiling are monotonous and flat but they don’t have to be.  They can be changed to make people look up with awe and delight.  In fact, a ceiling is probably the easiest place to add distinct elements of architecture to a room and introduce classic design.   I’m a big believer in vaulted ceilings to add beautiful detail, imaginative design, concave shapes and wood or faux painted finishes. The images in this post are some of the vaulted ceilings I’ve done.  Look how they give a more solid, classic, nuanced look, definitely not monotoned. I’ve seen people amazed by the effects achieved with a custom designed ceiling.  The use of light and accents create the impression that they’re in a room of great significance.  A precious find.  In fact, they are, because it has a wonderful vaulted ceiling made to bring out the character of the space. I like to think of a ceiling as a 5th wall.   Why would you leave the ceiling, or the 5th wall bare?  Just because the 5th wall is located up from the others doesn’t make it any less important.  I think it’s the wall that differentiates the room Interested to try in your home?
