Design Tips: Custom Wallpaper Ideas

There sure are a lot of options for ways to treat your walls. If plain old paint isn't good enough for you, the world explodes with options in wallpaper! Anything you can think of is available for you to apply to your walls.


And if you're tired of stripes, florals and the usual geometric patterns, check out the delightfully refreshing custom options from Paper Paint Press, based right here in Portland, Oregon. The fun of this line, besides being started by Jim Staicoff, who is a longtime associate of ours, is that the patterns can be scaled to whatever you want!


Whatever color you want, too. Check out the great article that appeared in The Oregonian on November 3, 2012, "Wallpaper Gets Creative Twist" by Bridget Otto, in their Homes and Gardens section. Staicoff collaborates with other artists to establish patterns and colors, including Dardinelle Troen, Amy Ruppel and Stephanie Dyer.

From beautiful leafy patterns that scatter up the walls, clever geometrics to abstract damask-like patterns created by animal shapes, these papers offer a very fresh take on the old standards.


Go for bold or subtle, tonal or bright. It's custom, you get what you want. Have a small bath? You don't even need to figure out what to do with all the leftover rolls, Paper Paint Press can deliver small orders, too.

Until next time!
