I am as an architect. Part of my job is to listen to my customers. Actually, this is very crucial part. During those conversations I usually hear what my customers want their renovated apartment to look like, what they unquestionably don’t want, what are they scared of et cetera. What I have noticed during those discussions is that there are a few things that are common for most of my customers. Plenty of them wanna have very modern house, that would look a bit different than houses of all their people. Simultaneously, they are really scared to go creative. Firstly I was pretty angry about this and was trying to fight with this kind of attitude. After a while, I did find a solution I can offer for such clients. My solution is… wallpapers. They enable to go crazy, but at the same time- look elegant. I am going to give you 2 concrete examples of that.
I know that when I was a kid I hated like my room. It seems to be perfect for some old lady. Not for that an amazing kid I was hoping to be back then. 1 of those things I really hated were wallpapers. I can recall how they looked very good – they were totally yellow with small pink spots on them. I hated them so badly! They were so annoying back then. I gave a promise to myself that when I am grown up and have my own flat, I would make sure this is awesome. And that I will never use wallpapers at all.
Recently, many parents, while arranging a room for their kid, were focusing mostly on practical issues. For example, they were making sure that the room will not require further changes for many years.
Our home is really important place, there we can feel comfortable. When we are dwelling in one flat for really long time, we may be sick of it decoration, especially when we’ve never renovate it before.
