Wallpaper: The Ultimate Guide

Серия: "-"

Wallpaper has never been more desirable. Throughout their 300-year history, patterned paper wallcoverings have alternated wildly between being absolutely'of the moment'or totally out of fashion. Recently, after more than a decade of blank white walls and minimalism, wallpaper has made a grand comeback - and its popularity shows no signs of abating. In this stunning book - the ultimate guide to wallpaper - Charlotte Abrahams gets to the heart of the exciting contemporary wallpaper scene. Dividing the book into the three main areas of design - pasted pictures, fabulous florals and architectural illusions - she starts each section with what is happening now, then traces the history back through the key moments, developments, designers and manufacturers to the origins of the style. New young designers and established manufacturers, funky new layered images and classic designs, the latest visual technology and hand-painted historical scenes - all are discussed and illustrated. Each section also explains how to use this type of wallpaper in a variety of ways and rooms to obtain different effects. Expert advice on working out colour schemes, mixing florals with geometrics, using large and small prints, zoning and other techniques is included. Each section ends with full-page photographs of the 48 best wallpapers in this area (a mix of contemporary and classic). Over 200 wallpapers are included and every one is itemised in an illustrated source list giving details of design and manufacturer, with contact details, websites and where to purchase. All the wallpapers featured are available worldwide. Illustrated throughout with stunning wallpaper designs and beautiful rooms, this book really will be the ultimate guide to wallpaper.
