From florals to modern geometrics, bold stripes to soothing landscapes, wallpaper has the ability to transform a wall and in so doing add a new life and energy to a room. Recognising that wallpaper is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to add colour, art and design to a home living room, bedroom, retail or office environment, digital printing experts Graffiti Retail Solutions have launched a range of inspired wallpapers.
The Group has developed a catalogue of wallpapers with a vast array of designs from which clients can choose; from conservative to bold and daring, quirky patterns to photo realistic images, there will be a solution for every need. Alternatively clients can supply their own designs which Graffiti will then produce and install – or Graffiti can custom design artwork.
Rather than overwhelming a space, wallpaper can be used to deliver a powerful statement on a feature wall. With a variety of colours, textures and patterns available, it can add depth, dimension, and personality to any space. It also presents opportunities for branding and the introduction of corporate identities into interior design, either subtly with a creative twist, or by making a more obvious statement. Wallpaper can be a great conversation starter for reception areas and boardrooms.
Using its new state of the art printer, Graffiti will be able to print on an extensive spectrum of materials ensuring interesting wall finishes. The wallpaper choices available will include grass cloth, vinyl, embossed, fabric or paper and patterned, textured, or smooth wallpapers.
Many available wallpapers are imported and come with a hefty price tag – one that keeps climbing as the Rand weakens. Being able to print locally and in white, in such a variety of styles, will make Graffiti’s made in South Africa offering far more competitive. The Graffiti range of wallpapers will appeal to a wide variety of markets: From interior decorators in the home decorating market, to creative ad agencies, boutique hotels, banks, restaurants and retail outlets.
Wallpaper is the most eloquent embodiment of changing fashions, vivid evidence of an individual’s taste, or company’s personality, and the fundamental framework of any new scheme of decoration and branding. From daring and breathtaking punchy patterns, to cool and controlled yet captivating palettes, the wallpaper spectrum is as wide as it is inspiring.
Wall Paper Tips and Tricks:
Where to Use Wall Paper:
- If you are using wall paper in a bathroom or kitchen where steam and condensation impact the longevity and look of a wall, be sure to use washable, vinyl wallpaper that’s easy to wipe down. The same rule of thumb should be applied to nurseries and playrooms too.
Choosing the Right Paper:
- Choosing wallpaper that suits your client, your client’s home and personality is very personal but also needs to suit requirements of the room. Light paper will make a room appear bigger, while vertical stripes add height to a room. Pastel shades and horizontal stripes add width, and a large print will make a room feel smaller.
- Consider the colour of the wall paint and the other furniture already in the room and make sure they complement each other. Don’t introduce wild geometrics if you already have a busy floral look.
