      • Gordon - Yes, have a few questions:
        Have a business office area that requires some updates.
        Is wall paper now a preferred option over painting / wood trim additions/upgrades?
        How about any cap cost & upkeep advantages

        Perhaps a call to discuss further.
        Thank youReplyCancel

        • Livia Drennan - Interesting questions Gordon. When it comes to wallpaper vs. painting the walls, it is very much a personal preference. Wallpaper brings interest to a space and makes it more inviting, and business offices definitely can benefit form this. Another way to add interest to walls, like you suggested, is by adding architectural details, such as crown moulding and/ or wainscoting. Wallpaper comes in various qualities, so it is hard to judge which option makes more sense financially, but keeping things equal probably they do compare well. As for upkeep, good quality wallpapers are washable and have high durability. You just gave me an idea for a future blogpost, as there is so much to say about this subject. If you would like additional information, please contact me.ReplyCancel

There is no doubt that fall arrived! We had a long and beautiful summer in Toronto, but no matter how much I pretended that the summer will never end, cooler temperatures, rain and shorter days are definitely here. And with this, fall decor starts appearing one-by-one in our homes. Whether we add some deeper colour pillows, […]
