The return of wallpaper is a hot trend for 2018. We are going to see an explosion of color, oversized prints and bold designs.
Why wallpaper? Wallpaper is a perfect solution to make a quick transformation or a create a bold statement. It can add interest to a space while playing off of your existing décor. It’s also a great way to bring in color or pattern! Monochromatic designs provide both texture and movement and large-scale patterns can trick your eye by making a small space appear larger.
If you’re not quite ready to go all in but you still want to do one of these things, there are plenty of ways to incorporate wallpaper without as much commitment. Find a pattern you love and use it on the back interior of a bookcase or on a kitchen backsplash wall. Create a focal point by using it on a ceiling or on a headboard wall in a bedroom. You can even use it to decoupage furniture – on the front of a dresser or on a tabletop underneath glass!
So what’s the first step? Well, start by stopping into Fringe so we can find you a pattern you’ll love. And in the meantime, here are a few inspiration pics to drool over!

Behind the scenes at the photo shoot:
And what's a photo shoot without the entire family? The homeowner's dog Fergie didn't need much convincing to strike the perfect pose!
Here are some exclusive shots that didn't make the cut:
Now that you've seen the finished rooms, here's a look at some of the 'before' photos:
The new architecture of this house was very to easy to work with. The bones were there; the space just needed to be designed and filled. You can see how the living room transformed by just simply rearranging the furniture and putting in a few finishing touches. The dining room, family room and master bedroom were 'open pallets', so you can imagine my creative juices began to flow! After listening to what the clients wanted, a couple different floor plans were created and we chose the best fit for the family.
