As most of you know, we’re big fans of Houzz, the largest collection of interior design and decorating ideas on the Internet (if you haven’t checked the site out already, we would highly recommend it). Over the past few months, after catching up on our portfolio – coordinating the photo shoot, finalizing schedules, styling, primping, editing, then the infamous UPLOADING (our favorite part) – we’ve seen quite a few of our newly uploaded projects trending on their site (GHID on Houzz).
And this happens to be the case for one of our most recently photographed projects, a beautiful wallpaper-clad entry in which a geometric print was used to highlight the space.
During the planning phase of this project, our clients work with Garrison to set a budget, and after looking at the figures, thought that wallpaper was way out of their price range. However, after working with Garrison and Alison realized that with proper wallpaper selection, it could absolutely be done well within their price range! The end result? A gorgeous room with a fantastic statement.
Here’s how we do it:
There are plenty of wall-coverings that exceed most of our projects price ranges – but also plenty of gorgeous options well within our price range. So first we narrow down our search immediately by price (never forgetting our overarching vision). There is certainly no reason to spend more than necessary. So after we narrow down by price, we order samples of the wall-coverings that fit within our vision, and go from there. It’s our goal to make the most out of our client’s budget – never once forgetting our collaborative vision for their home.
In this entry we used Kravet, JOSEPH ABBOUD PERSPECTIVE: W3145 – 1635, an affordable and cleanable wall-covering, perfect for this active family.
Comes in this colorway as well:
Using wallpaper in small spaces, such as an entryway, is a perfect way to add that touch of interest into your home without overdoing it in more ways than one (both the look and the pocketbook). Check out a few of our favorite papered entries we oh so appropriately, found on houzz.

We love Chevron Wallpaper. How incredibly hip is this cool kids room?
