Beautiful Wallpaper (posted 19th February 2016)

Last week I came across a clip that showed how wallpaper used to be made: with an enormous amount of effort and extreme precision. And it got me thinking - how is wallpaper made in comparison today?  As interior designers and those working in the world of interior design we specify wallpapers all the time - it's one of the joys of the job, looking at all of the beautiful wallpapers! So for this weeks blog we looked into how wallpaper was made versus how it is made today.



This is the clip that first inspired this blog (love the commentary!)


Today there are several methods for printing wallpaper. From the hand method shown above, to bespoke designs that individuals commission themselves. To get an overview we contacted several wallpaper companies that we, at Suna Interior Design, use. We delved, did a bit of reading and a lot of looking at rather striking and captivating wallpapers. If you'd like to know more about the nitty-gritty, click here for a guide to wallpaper printing. Otherwise here is a clip showing the detail one company goes to, to make wallpapers today:



And because we just love wallpaper so much, we've shared some of our favourite wallpapers:

(Generally Koziels range of papers, especially the one below. Use them as a vignette on a wall or as a headboard panel behind a bed... they come in a velvet touch wall covering too, as well as wallpaper... Unusual and striking, but don't over-do the effect!)
