Wall You Need Is Love
Murals are making a comeback. The James, for instance, an über chic boutique hotel in downtown Chicago, is decked out in bold blown-up photographs: huge birch trees en route to the elevators from the lobby, abstracted textures at each floor level. In the minimal setting, they create a big impact. Wall You Need is Love lets you create custom walls just like those at The James with their Wallpaper à La Carte: any image, any size, any scale
Wall You Need is Love.
It’s a new year – and a great time for new décor. In the scheme of things, changing your wall-coverings is a fairly minor endeavor. Satisfy your need for nature with a life-size forest or your desire to see the world through a citiscape of Paris or landscape of Santorini. For a different look, try blowing up an image or pattern for an abstract aesthetic. You can use a photo from your own collection or choose one from the company’s extensive portfolio. “Home décor is an expression of our personality, something unique,” says Patrick Pepin, founder of Wall You Need is Love.
For residences and businesses alike, it offers the opportunity for creativity and self expression. If it seems a bit intimidating, Wall You Need is Love works with clients individually to help with the decision-making process. Usual production time is only two weeks – allowing for early instant gratification (always a perk).
Beyond the custom wallpaper, the company also offers an Artist Canvas, using a process called “Giclée on Canvas”. The image is printed on an artist canvas, hand varnished and mounted on a wood stretcher – with the image wrapped around the frame eliminating the need for framing. So if the concept of covering entire walls seems daunting – or too overdone for your setting – the Artist Canvas offers an alternative. Regardless, the options are pretty much endless.
