3 Amazing Wallpaper Uses

Beyond the wall…


It’s been quite a while, I’m sorry! Well needed rest I feel. Anyway, I’m back at it again with a new helpful and creative post to keep our designer minds popping and bobbing.

Wallpaper has always been my go to when talking about a quick interior change. The house walls are usually like skin, you change your skin and you look a whole lot different (this is the best analogy I could come up with after going missing for months.. nice.. haha). Moving right along, so here are 3 amazing uses for wallpaper that will give you house a new look and cost you less coin than you would think.

STAIRCASE BEAUTY

There always those over dramatic wallpaper designs I see in stores and I just stare at them like, who in the world would buy this? Well, I guess we should now!!! A little goes a long way. Add an accent wall without getting permanent and it being on the side of the staircase definetly got a nod from me because it looked a little less busy and does not restrict other patterns you may wish to have in your space.

The good news is that there is more than one way to place a wallpaper on your staircase. Have a look at this!

This looks absolutely gorgeous, and the best part is the placement is not at the top of the staircase so nobody will be ruining your beautiful style while the make their way up the stairs.

This particular picture did give me some tropical vibes because the blending of the pineapple images on the wallpaper and well placed vibrant plants, matched with those chairs ( I honestly don’t know what they are called) everything did come togethere perfectly. Goes to show that “one” thing could complete the look you might be going for and that “one” thing could be wallpaper.

WALL ART

Paintings can be very expensive, though totally worth it. I personally advocate for buying beautiful paintings mainly because I have amazing artists for friends, shout out to you Eileen Tamining, she draws people, birds, dogs to a pack of yogurt to absolute perfection, check her out. Anyway, sometimes when we are trying to get ready to save up that money for a beautiful drawing we could indulge in some allowed wallpaper cut into a beautiful frame DIY.

You can thank me in likes and subscriptions for this one, I’m not needy 🙂 Anyway, so a framed wallpaper gives you room to have absolutely anything on your wall (in high resolution if you’d wish btw), it literally depends on what you would want for your space. So go ahead and get to DIY’ing.

TRAY ACCENTS

Sometimes , you would want to shake things abit. Add some character to your normal tray with some leftover wallpaper. Doesn’t cost too much time or money but the impact is definitely something your guests will notice. Be sure to direct them to veebydesign for more awesome interior decor tips and tricks ( As LoganPaul would say, always plug!!)

Tell me this isn’t stunning!.. I’ll wait!

 

So, that is all I have for you today, I am glad to be back and I’m glad my fellow designers are right back with me. Hope you enjoyed the post. Wishing you all nothing but good health, great success and warm hearts.

Brass & Gold

The gateway to luxurious interiors…


I know it’s been a while but I needed some time to re-collect and re-organize my thoughts and just be brand new about a whole lot, with that said not much has changed I’m just being dramatic.Honestly, I just got super lazy for the past few weeks and my ideas genuinely sucked so I had myself a vacation. I relaxed and enjoyed the sunshine and now the rains, I went for some parties here and there in some nice houses, I postponed washing my clothes for this one week just to live on the edge (I hated the edge!) and finally I had a cup of noodles every once in a while ( wassup Indomie)..best affordable vacation ever!

Anyway enough chitty chatter, I know why we are all here….. Trump du Donald…oh no? That’s not it? I’m too late you say? He’s president you say?…oh okay wrong forum I guess! We are here for brass and gold interior decor, let’s keep it pushing while we still have internet in Africa shall we?

I have always loved a fancy looking bathroom with some nice marble or tiles matched with some neat curtains or all contained in a complementary glass cubicle but I always get let down a bit by the storage accessories placed in these luxurious bathrooms. Truth be told I am not a fan of plastic soap dishes they add no value to a style you’d hope to have in your salle de bains. So, when I saw this amazing brass bathroom storage and organizing accessories I knew I had to share. A fancy feel definitely floats around the space once you add these gorgeous babies to the mix.

Recently, I came across this awesome Instagram Page, I’ll remember the name eventually and they had  a DIY bar. I loved the idea so much and it got me thinking how perfect a brass bar would look like. You could add a bottle of your choice place some wine or whiskey glasses and maybe a bucket of ice. This would be perfect if you holding a small get together at your place where you guests would be comfortable enough to pour themselves something without having to invade your kitchen area.

Why don’t you also throw in a bold pillow to the decor. This gold and marble throw pillow has such an abstract look to it, against a wide range of suitable solid couch colors this will be the cherry on top to avoid having a very plain looking sofa.

Gold accessories are by far my favorite when it comes to outfits because they shift anything from plain Jane to a 10. So, an opportunity to dress my living space with some gold accents is something that definitely had my decor blood pumping.
