Of course, it is possible to have wall upholstery fabric in wool on your walls. The result is just so beautiful. I am going to show several examples. Each project does vary in size, color and type of room. Click on an image to enlarge and view details.
In fact, all rooms upholstered in wool are a big success. And we have upholstered many corridors, master bedroom, mezzanine, including stairwell, hallway. The list is not yet complete.
When walls wear wool, the room feels cozy, warm and comfortable as a much wearing woolly clothes! A wall has a mat effect with texture.
Beautiful interiors in wall upholstery fabric.
Below are an entrance hall and a hallway in a very nice home. An amazing transformation from flat paint to luxurious textured walls. When stepping in the main entrance of this magnificent home, a warm and peaceful feeling embraces you, surrounded by fabric walls in fine wool in a serene color.
Furthermore you will notice a clean finish around all the wood frames, ceilings, arch doorways and baseboard. No decorative trimmings like cords or braids: simplicity and elegance. Click on a picture to enlarge.
Another project is this vestibule leading to a corridor. Both spaces have wool fabric on walls. A plain red and a plaid fabric in the next room. The vestibule has odd shape walls, only 9 feet by 10 feet at the widest point.
What about blue wall upholstery fabric? The next 7 pictures are bedrooms upholstered in different wool colors and patterns. On one side, there is narrow alcove. If you look closely at the second image, you will see the wool texture.
Green is also an option for walls. Yet another bedroom where only corners have wall upholstery fabric. Natural wood furniture, white-painted wood and green wooly walls.
Tartan wool fabric
For those who do like patterns fabric, we have a few example of beautiful wool stretched on walls. A woven plaid or tartan looks great in various spaces. Below is a project in a large master bedroom. Both ceiling and walls have fabric wall coverings. Tartan or check fabric is one of my favorite cloths but when it is apply to walls, it is just stunning. That is to say, see these really nice interiors.
At this point, I would like to make an emphasis on our fabric installation. On ceilings or anywhere else, the fabric is not glued but stretched on the surface. You may have noticed that there are new types of wall coverings on the market. More and more fabrics have a backing. Why backing? When a fabric is glue it is not wall upholstery. This is a topic for another article.
To conclude this note, all wall upholstery fabric images seen in the article have NO knit backing or paper backing. The cloth is stretched on walls from side to side like any other fabric. Therefore,I wish to stress that fabric with paper backing glue on walls is wallpaper finish.
Tips for a large room
In large room such as this one, you may want to consider adding the same fabric on accessories. For instance, try on furniture and soft furnishings.
So bring a little fun and texture in your room, by using colors from the walls. In this case, plain red, black and grey for your upholstery on chairs, bedspreads, draperies, cushions and so on. This particular bedroom was published in the Veranda Magazine last December. Actually we are very please to present you the room furnished as it is not always the case.
