Wallpaper actually began in ancient China, first because the Chinese invented paper, and secondly because they glued rice paper onto their walls as early as 200 B.C. Amazingly wallpaper and wallcoverings are still being used in creative ways today. Wallpaper represents a rich history of artisans and designers, and has a proud heritage of tradition around the world.
Around 30 years ago nearly every tastefully designed home was covered with a great deal of wallpaper. The tide then changed, and wallpaper treatment greatly diminished in interior design. The pendulum now, however has swung back in the direction of wallpaper. At Marilyn H. Rose Interiors, we like to follow the trends, but in our own unique way. We frequently incorporate wallpaper in our Long Island, Hamptons, and N.Y.C. apartment interior design projects for varied effects.
Wallcoverings can be used to add drama. It can be utilized to add pattern to boring shelves or as a backdrop, using a beautiful motif to the subtlest texture.
Wallpaper can dictate the style of a space. For example, it can complement a mid-century modern, contemporary, traditional, transitional or art deco design.
