Wallpaper- a great design option

If you were a child of the 80’s (like myself!) your memories of wallpaper may match the images shown in the first photo below… How many of you remember the Laura Ashley tiny florals, the seafoam green and pink “Southwestern” patterns or the popularity of BORDERS that ran across many a wall?
Wallpaper has certainly seen it’s trends through the years, and for a while, it seemed to be a design choice many people avoided- myself included! But I’m here to tell you that wallpaper can be a wonderful way to incorporate color, texture and pattern into a room, and with the multitude of AMAZING papers available to choose from these days, in a wide range of prices, it’s a design option that is worth noting.

Recently, I was introduced to Stuart Glist, owner of the Wallpaper Bin located in nearby Northridge, CA. Wallpaper Bin has been in business for 40 years and is well known throughout the Valley and Los Angeles area as the place to go to when in need of wall coverings. Stuart has many papers available for purchase in his store, but if you don’t see something you like, he also has a number of sample books that can be browsed through and ordered from, many times at a discount!  If you have a photo of something you like, he recommends bringing it to him to see what he can do. And, if you are unsure of hanging wallpaper yourself, Stuart knows many professional hangers and can recommend one in your area who can get the job done!
