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!

Happy Labor Day!

Monday, September 7th, 2015

Like millions of other Americans  we’re on break but will be back soon. Don’t you love these made up holidays?!

Actually, Labor Day was created to honor the worker and give them a wall deserved break so gotta take advantage of this opportunity, particularly before things tend to get hectic in the fall.

Without this break, any one of these visuals could have been used for this week’s post.
