Casart coverings wishes all a Merry Christmas and the best of the holiday season and with colorful cheer coming from Paris, the City of Lights.

Let us all remember…

More than the tree or the decking of halls,

More than the music and mobs at the malls,

More than the feasts that are planned and prepared,

The family stories remembered and shared,

More than the lights that will soon disappear,

The manger and star that get stored till next year,

More than these things which all play a small part,

Christmas is love that lives on in each heart.

Vital and Vibrant Living with ViVi Interiors

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

If you didn’t know, I attended The American School In Switzerland, a private Swiss boarding school. Over this past weekend I went to an all class reunion at the Hay Adams Hotel, for anyone who has ever graduated from my high school. It was an interesting experience being the youngest person there, but it was a great opportunity for networking within D.C. At this event, I was lucky enough to meet one of the top interior designers in Washington, Rachel Dougan. Rachel Dougan is the founder and principal designer of ViVi Interiors.

 Her firm is a full service interior design studio. Depending on the needs and scope of a clients project, they can help from start to finish, or anywhere in between. Rachel offers three services, color consultation, fluff and buff, and the kit and caboodle. She takes the art of color and turns it into a science with her color consultation, while her other services offer partial remodel and full design. She strives for a room to bring out the personality and lifestyle of each individual client she serves. Rachel personally describes her mission as:

“Bringing out the beauty, vitality and vibrance of each individual’s​ home–this is what I love to do.​ This is what ViVi is about.​”

Rachel Dougan uses a full range of interior design techniques that has created a multitude of stunning views. We decided to highlight a few examples of her work that are similar to some Casart coverings designs.

As you probably know, Casart coverings newest line is The Cloud Collection. This line features three types of clouds, with one as a ceiling covering. Rachel Dougan’s work on this waterfront bedroom mirrors our use of clouds in design.

Our next example comes from ViVi Interiors same project on the Waterfront house, in a similar color scheme but completely different design. This design features a string of elegant flower wallpaper, which gives the bathroom a beautiful and natural look.

Dougan’s decoration reminds us of our Flower Power line, in 16 different colorways, almost every color imaginable. With all of these options, consumers can use The Flower Power design to fit any of their interior decoration needs.

I had a lovely time talking to Rachel Dougan over this past weekend. She is an extremely nice and charismatic woman with great interior design skills. I really enjoy the work she has done so far, and am looking forward to what she comes up with next!

Wallpaper No Longer A Sticky Business

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

The Olympian recently published an article describing the hot new trend of temporary wallpaper, with an interview featuring Interior Designer, Kathleen DiPaolo, who is a well-known interior designer from Orange County, California. DiPaolo goes over the benefits that removable wallpaper has, and she explains different styles that she uses in various projects.

“The quality of [removable wallpaper] is very good now. It’s not like the stick-on flowers [decals] that you used to put in your dorm room… And they’re not hard to put on or remove, so you don’t have to get a professional to do it.”

As you can see, DiPa0lo’s sense of style is similar to some products offered by Casart coverings. This example is very similar to our French Peacock Damask Pattern featured below.

Another example of Kathleen’s work is depicted below. We love the large scale fish and colors used.

We noticed that DiPaolo likes to use some marine animals in her work. Casart Coverings shares that same taste for marine life, as seen in these individual fish panels below as part of our  The Gulf Coast Recovery Line.

All of these elements can be used to create a custom mural.

Kathleen DiPaolo covers the recent change in both the design and production elements of wallpaper. DiPaolo references the many materials that are now available to create extremely durable temporary wallpaper that can even feel like a real wall. She also talks about the advances in digital printing technology which has given designers much more flexibility to create new designs. This new technology shows extremely fine detail that people have used to create much more realistic wallpaper.

Casart coverings uses this new process in every product, but you can really see the detail in our Zebrawood Collection.

DiPaolo was quoted as saying:

“Nowadays I think custom painting is really expensive, and you’re not guaranteed a great result – it depends on the skill of the painter. If you want to try something a little daring without spending a lot, why not try wallpaper?”

Kathleen DiPaolo advances the movement in temporary wallpaper and shows the many benefits of using them in interior design. Casart coverings noticed these advantages a while ago, and we are happy that other people are taking notice also!
