Long Distance Wallpaper

June 29, 2010

The Internet sure has opened a world of opportunities, in many fields.

I got a call from an interior designer in Hollywood, who is working with a client here in Houston.

She has seen the home one time in person. But, with the reality of the Internet, she is able to find wallcoverings (and the home’s other furnishings) on-line.

She has been able to send me stats on the products, info on the rooms, measurements, and photos, all via the computer!

Silver Cork – A New “Species” in Wallcovering

May 27, 2010

Well, it’s not really “new”… I’ve installed cork wallcoverings before, as long ago as 10 years.

But what I put up today was quite contemporary, a very thin natural cork (composed of swatches about 5″ square, affixed to a paper backing 36” wide) and covered with a metalic silver coating.

Somewhat tricky to work with, because the rough patches on the cork had a tendency to want to abrade off. But the finished room (a bar area in a private home) was striking.

It was a unique paper and made a definate statement in this contemporary-styled home.
