New England Home Shares Ideas for a Bold, Easy Make-over
Nothing can transform a room as swiftly and completely as the introduction of wallpaper.

From subtle natural fibers to bold and graphic design—there is something for every design point-of-view.

Bigger is Better
Not afraid to make a style statement? Bold, large scale papers will instantly transform a room. It sounds counterintuitive, but these bold papers work beautifully in small spaces such as powder rooms and offices—or anywhere else you are open to creating some serious drama.
Oh so Faux
Wallpapers taking their cue from Faux Bois—French for fake wood—add a decidedly masculine element to a room. Just imagine a cozy room wrapped in lush bark and comforting earthy colors. The look is au courant with papers that have glamorous touches such as gilt or saturated color.
