Faking it!


If you've got flaunt it and if you don't...fake it! That's my motto, well for interiors anyway! Not all of us are blessed with amazing features in our homes like an old tin tiled ceilings, a beautiful brickwall or even an amazing concrete wall.So how do you give your pad so much needed va va voom without breaking the bank? Easy, you fake it! Nowadays there are so many outstanding wallpapers out there that can do just that... First off, tin tiles my personal favourite...  In the 1800's tin ceilings were introduced to North America as an affordable alternative to the exquisite plaster work found in European homes. Today the irregularity and aged patina of flaking paint give much appeal to this American architectural icon.




Look closely and all is not what it seems. Piet Hein Eek, Piet Boon, Arthur Slenk (amongst others) and NLXL have combined to create mind teasing premium quality wallpaper.
