Shields Wallpaper & Mural Installations - Wash DC Metro Area - Part 2

Whether you’re trying to hide a switch plate or convert your very obvious air vent into a creative talking piece, wallpaper can do it. Last week our client was not happy with the large kitchen air vent and wanted the vent covered with wallpaper. Here’s the result:

In the pictures below, can you see what is being hidden in plain sight?

The first is a damask paper on the walls in a dining room in an older home in Washington, DC. This dining room had several pantries for dishes, crystal, etc. Covering the doors of the pantries creates the illusion of uninterrupted wall space.

The second and third pictures hide light switches. The second photo is in a bedroom and the third is in a butler’s pantry. Remember wallpaper can offer clever solutions to awkward fixtures and room insets.

Japanese Chinoisere-Inspired Mural

Today I installed this quirky but very cool custom mural made in the Netherlands. This Japanese Chinoiserie-inspired mural makes this living room really come alive.

Scenic wallpapers, popular for centuries, continue to grace the walls of dining rooms, hallways, master bedrooms and other rooms. Chinoiserie-inspired patterns are very popular today.

I regularly install Chinese murals, often in traditional dining rooms, but also in offices and entry ways. Anywhere, from a small accent in an alcove to a sweeping panorama at the focal point of a house. There’s nothing like a hand-painted Chinese mural.
