NYC Professional Wallpaper Hanging
Upper East Side Manhattan has been dubbed the Gold Coast and Silk Stocking District. It is renown for arts and culture with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum, El Museo del Barrio, the Jewish Museum and more. The rich and famous, along with the modest and lesser known, adore Central Park, the comedy clubs, shopping, nightlife and restaurants. It is in this elegant setting that one local homeowner recently contacted Paintworks & Decorating to add a very sharp, black and white wallpaper in the kitchen and bathroom.
The project began with washing then prepping the walls for smoothness and optimum adherence characteristics. Paintworks always applies R-35® Clear Adhesion-Promoting Wallpaper Primer which not only dries clear with a permanent tackiness (sticky, not sleazy), but also minimal odor, cleans up with water and rates zero on the VOC scale. The rooms already had white tile and a black tile border, so adding wallpaper with geometrical black and white shapes kept the sharp contrast for which black and white are often chosen. The geometric pattern reaches into our sense of order and embraces our comfort in repetition. The Paintworks crew was very happy with the result because it looked really cool with a fun, illusion-like quality. It doesn't make you cross your eyes or anything, but it does get your attention in an unexpected, mischievous way.
