History


Around 15 to 20 years ago, this home decor was an absolute must have! It adorned the walls of nearly every home, and in the mid-90s, it completely fell off the face of the earth but in recent years, it has come back as a chic addition for any home. Now, fashionistas are raving about it!

Why Use Wallpaper?

Wallpaper is easy to apply! Use your plain monochrome wall and turn it into eye-candy. With new textures and patterns, wallpaper can be changed seasonally just like a pair of shoes! Ever since I discovered a nice little shop that sells these decorative pieces for the home, soon after, you could find them on the walls of my home. If you need to refresh your crib or overlay stains on the wall, and you have neither the time nor the desire to whiten the walls, and then clean the chaos after the painters, wallpaper is the ideal solution for you. 

How to Guide: 

I present to all of my fellow fashionistas a small guide on:
How to find the ideal wallpaper for your home?

   
What kind of wallpaper material should I use for my home? 

1. Different Types of Wallpaper:

There are many modern options available when it comes to this "it" interior design trend:

Embossed: Embossed wallpaper, which has texture, is great for covering walls with imperfections. Its perk? Embossed wallpaper is easy to clean and set-up.

Embossed Wallpaper Headboard

Fabric: Fabric wallpaper, whose base is textile, is a little harder to put on the wall. Fabric is difficult to clean. However, this wallpaper adds a great texture to your home and makes a trendy statement. 

Velvet: Velvet wallpaper has a plain paper or a vinyl base.   It is soft to the touch and does not just lay flat on the wall.  The downside? It is difficult to clean. 

Baroque Style
Foil: Foil wallpaper has a metallic look and adds light to the room. Foil wallpaper works the best on clean walls with no damage and defects. When applying foil wallpaper, you will have a hard time but it is fairly easy to clean! 

Metallic Wallpaper For the Modern Home
Grasscloth texture: Grasscloth texture is wallpaper woven using long strands of grass. Its perks: it has remarkable texture and organic quality! It is very popular in the interior of modern homes. Its downside: it is difficult to apply and remove from the wall surfaces. 


Vinyl: Vinyl wallpaper is used as a base.  Vinyl is easy to clean, set-up and remove. It is a good choice for bathrooms. 

2. Wallpaper: With or Without Patterns?

Subtle wallpaper does not exist! Use wallpaper if you are looking for a "wow" effect for your home, i.e., you want the wallpaper to brighten your living space with interesting textures and patterns. It is necessary to select wallpaper that complements your already existing interior design. Do not pick a wallpaper that will overshadow your existing home decor. 




3. What's the Right Kind of Wallpaper for My Home?

Patterns: When selecting samples, keep in mind that horizontal patterns make your room look wider while vertical patterns give the appearance that your home has higher ceilings. In one room, you can use a maximum of two different samples of wallpaper provided they are not on the same side of the wall.

Colors: Wallpaper looks beautiful when it complements the rest of the colors in the room.  My choice when decorating our bedrooms were two differently colored wallpapers. Also, the wallpaper has vertical patterns: purple and white vertical stripes, and black and white zebra patterns. We like it! :)

Measurement: One more pice of advice: Before you start the process of applying the desired wallpaper on your wall, be sure to measure the space where you want to apply the wallpaper to make sure that you have enough material for the wall.

Home Interior: Living Room Wallpaper
Bosanski /Hrvatski /Srpski: 

Fashionisti širom svijeta svakodnevno prate šta je to u trendu od odjeće, obuće, modnih dodataka; ali sa novim vremenima, mijenjaju se i trendovi u uređenju doma i životnog prostora. 

Unazad 15-20 godina bile su apsolutni hit i krasile su zidove skoro svakog doma, no sredinom 90-tih godina potpuno su pale u zaborav. Posljednih godina ponovno dolaze kao chic dodatak svakom domu i fashionisti su potpuno poludjeli za njima. Ukoliko do sada niste shvatili o čemu je riječ – u pitanju su zidne tapete! 

Retro tapete
Jednostavno se apliciraju, svojim novim teksturama i dezenima obični jednobojni zid pretvaraju u pravu zidnu poslasticu, možete ih mjenjati sezonski, baš poput para cipelica.

Otkako sam otkrila jedan super shop koji prodaje ove dekorativne komade za dom, ubrzo su se iste našle na zidovima mog životnog prostora. Trebate li i vi osvježenje svog kutka, ili pak prekrivanje flekica po zidu, a nemate ni vremena ni želje za krečiti, pa potom čistiti onaj haos nakon molera, tapete su idealno rješenje za vas.

U nastavku donosimo mali vodič za sve fashioniste: kako do idealne tapete za vaš zid !

Što vrsta materijla tapete čini za moj prostor ?

Postoje mnoge moderne opcije na raspolaganju kada su u pitanju ove «it» kreacije za zid:

Reljefni : Izvrstan za pokrivanje zidova sa nesavršenostima , reljefni papir je sa teksturom , a može se i bojiti. Lako se čisti i postavlja.




Tkanina : Tapete sa bazom od tekstila se malo teže postavljaju na zid, te se teško čiste. No, ovakve tapete dodaju veliku teksturu, te ostavljaju trendovski dojam.


Pliš : Ovakve tapete se sastoje od papira ili vinil baze, te sadrže uzorak od baršunastih podignutih površina. Njihova estetika dolazi u centar pažnje unutar prostora, međutom nisu jednostavne za rukovanje i teško su perive.



Folije : Metalik izgled zidnih podloga će dodati svjetlost u sobu i najbolje funkcioniše na čistim zidovima bez oštećenja i nedostataka. Oko njihovog apliciranje trebat ćete se malo namučiti, ali su prilično lake za čišćenje.

Grasscloth tekstura : tapete tkane na dugim vlasima trave , imaju izuzetnu teksturu i organske kvalitete. Vrlo je popularna u uređenju savremenih domova, iako je teška i za apliciranje i za skidanje sa zidnih površina.

Vinil : To je osnova većine tapeta. Lako se čisti , postavlja i uklanja. Predstavlja dobar izbor za kupaonice.

Trebam li koristiti zidne tapete s uzorkom ?

Suptilne tapete ne postoje, ali ako ste u potrazi za " wow " efektom, željet ćete svoj dom uljepšati tapetama sa zanimljivim teksturama i uzorcima. Potrebno je odabrati one koje nadopunjuju vaš dekor u prostoriji, nikako one koje će dominirati sobom, te sve ostalo staviti u drugi plan.


Pri odabiru uzoraka, imajte na umu da će horizontalni uzorci učiniti da vaša soba izgleda šire, dok će vertikalni uzorci vašem prostoru dati izgled sa višim stropom. U jednoj prostoriji možete koristiti maximalno 2 različita uzorka tapeta, pod uslovom da se ne nalaze na istoj strani zida. 

Najljepše izgleda kada su tapete u istoj prostoriji iste boje – različite teksture, ili pak isti uzorak u različitim bojama. Moj izbor za dekorisanje spavaće sobe bile su 2 tapete različitih boja, ali i različitih dezena (ljubičaste i bijele vertikalne pruge & crno bijeli zebra uzorak). Nama se dopada :)

 
Savjet plus: Prije nego počnete sa procesom apliciranja željene tapete na vaš zid, obavezno izmjerite prostor kojem želite dati novo ruho, kako bi se uvjerili da imate dovoljno materijala za zid.
