Rub, rub (to paraphrase a certain TV host) … and if we really took over the squeegee?

If until 1990 wallpaper wall decoration was the most used in the world since the paint and raw material had taken over. The wallpaper was more likely: out of the question to ask in our homes!

It has abandoned the rounded designs and full of 50s, abstract patterns of flowers in flat areas of the 60s, the patterned, almost psychedelic 70s, plaster imitations 90s look … Question? Question practicality? It seems that the choice of designs and formats no longer met our needs.

Today, the memory of having to take off the papers of total looks walls of old houses fades and the wallpaper again a breakthrough. But beware, this new trend meets new expectations: real medium of expression, it is only willing, we hope it looks like us, you want to have fun with, and especially desired lighter, whether by his reason or his placement.
