Yes you heard correctly, fabric. This application is not new and has been done many many times by designers and and interior decorators for many years.
I am redoing this bedroom and wanted to do something moody with the walls. Ive tried temporary wall paper and it is a challenge to work with, so I decided to try fabric.
So, one day I was at one of my favorite fabric stores and happened to see this gray damask. I had looked at other pieces, but I completely missed this one. I bought a yard just to see how it would look on the walls. When I arrived home and sat up in my bed that night and looked across the room at it I knew right then, this was the one. I was initially drawn to using this textile because of the color as well as the price. It was only $14.99 a yard and then it was part of their 50% off sale (happens ever so often) and I also had a coupon for 20% off my entire order. So I only paid around $6 a yard. Which was good because I was going to need a lot of fabric to cover the walls in this bedroom.
*the measuring tape is there because I am seeing what size TV Id like to get for the bedroom. I have had a TV in well over 3 years**
Just like wall paper, the options are endless when it comes using fabric on your walls.
Have you tried putting up fabric on your walls?
