Like Rembrandt in front of his easel, designers stand in front of walls and imagine what they want to convey –

  • “Should I give an impression like Monet?”
  • “Hmmm, maybe something abstract …”
  • “How would Dali paint this wall?”

Bottom line, your walls are your canvas. From raw and minimal to stylish and multi-functional, in the last century alone, walls have gone through quite a transformation. They continue to evolve at a rapid pace.
