Noble Designs: The Wonders of Wallpaper!

In case you missed it, last month we announced our partnership with Sara Noble and the Noble Designs team!  Sara will be guest blogging for us each month on things like up-to-date design trends, decor and more.  We’re excited to pair up with one of the best designers in town!  Sara has been designing for lucky Kansas Citians for 16 years and has grown her company to include a team of five designers plus additional staff.

Wallpaper, updated

This piece by Sara is all about the Wonders of Wallpaper!  As always, she’s right on trend. Wallpaper is one of those updates that can be (relatively) simple and inexpensive.  Of course, you can quickly lose yourself in gorgeous wallcoverings that cost a pretty penny!  If the word “wallpaper” evokes images of stodgy florals and animals, think again!  Today’s patterns feature things like:

  • retro patterns and artwork
  • embellished art deco designs
  • abstract and unique graphic prints
  • natural imagery with a modern twist

The Wonders of Wallpaper

“Hello!  I’m sitting here working on my first blog for Cami Jones Collaborative and I’m thinking about my bag of tricks.   I started reviewing some of the work we have done I found a theme!  I LOVE wallpaper!  It transforms a space.  It’s daring and fun.  I will be the first to admit it can be dated and awful but the new papers are fresh and instantly update any space.

My first experience with interior design was when I was 14 years old and got the opportunity to decorate my new room. We had moved to a new city which (was not part of my teenage plan). I’m guessing my mother encouraged a room makeover to divert my negative attitude.  And it worked!I loved my pink heart paper separated by a chair rail and the delicate pink flower paper on top. The perfect backdrop to my teddy bear collection.  Makes me sound like a real goody two shoes!  And in retrospect, it does seem a bit immature.

Wallpaper WOW!

But I digress, today’s paper has the ability to create a wow factor, and, despite what our parents might say, it is not permanent.  Today’s wallpapers are made to not tear down the walls if you change your mind in 10 years.  I especially love the look in a powder room.  I think people are willing to be more daring in this space and the size means you don’t need a lot of material making it a budget-friendly possibility for almost anyone.Some of my favorite brands are Schumacher, Thiabaut, and Cole and Son.  If you are in the market for a quick makeover give us a call and we will be happy to show our stash of samples and help you find the perfect design.”
