SMALL PLACE, BIG STATEMENT





Some of you might remember my retrospective Going Bananas a few months ago about the arguably most iconic pattern of the 20th C, the banana leaf.

The inspirational American online lifestyle company Domaine released yesterday on their website a brilliant instructional, step-by-step video showing how to hang wallpaper featuring the vibrant Martinique to add a touch of Beverley Hills Hotel to your home, à la Don Loper Рhe who invented Martinique in 1942.

Another fine example that trends fade away but style lasts!





Instructions:

INSPECT YOUR WALLPAPER:
1. Unroll & check for holes, correct colors & size

PREP WALLS
1. Make sure walls are clean, smooth, sanded & primed
2. Measure and map walls

READY TO START:
1. Cut paper into strips, leaving a few inches top & bottom to trim
2. With roller, apply remixed vinyl adhesive.
4. Use level to make sure first strip is straight.
5. Remove air bubbles with smoothing tool
6. Align patterns carefully & close with seam roller (to help edge lay flat)
7. Trim edges with a razor blade (careful!)
8. Go over entire paper with moist sponge (to remove any glue)
9. Repeat – change blades frequently to stay sharp
*TIP* When going around corners, carefully cut paper & tuck

CLEAN IT UP!
1. Cut all trims
2. Go over with moist sponge again

Et voila!
