Your interior decor is a very important aspect of the overall interior design of your home, but how 'bout them walls? Lets look back at to your walls for some unconventional wall coverings inspiration and eye candy. Today's blog was inspired by Garrison and his partner, J. As Garrison and his partner are having their new home remodeled, J has been staying at their beach home, where they have a phenomenal accent wall made of reclaimed wood. To make a greater impact in a small space, they brought in some natural elements for a sophisticated industrial look. Lets take a closer look at some other beautiful and unique ways to dress up your walls, so you won't need to be asking what cool wall coverings are out there!

Are You Done With Those Jeans? I'd Like To Create A Wallpaper With Them...

Chicago restaurateurs Billy Lawless and Branko Palikuca teamed up to open a two-story restaurant creatively named The Dawson. The space was created by drawing inspiration from the area’s industrial past, incorporating reclaimed wood, salvaged brick, and exposed steel into the 12,400-square-foot space. Upstairs near the fireplace, a chevron-print denim wall covering adorns the wall to create a cozy ambiance. The hand-crafted denim wall covering was created by a very talented artist Anna Wolfson. If you haven't heard of her before...you have to see her other work, she is T.A.L.E.N.T.E.D.

Feeling Blue? This Blue Scale Design Will Leave You Wanting More!

Sometimes masculine interior design makes sweeping generalizations about what men really want in their homes. In this industrial home, that is not the case. The blue scale design generates interest with a modern spin on the design. Visual texture was strategically brought into this space with a velvet sectional sofa, leather paneled down pillows and the geometric rug. The patina sheets of blue steel on the wall create depth and transport you to an abandoned warehouse where this skateboarder might practice perfecting his skills.
