I work as an architect. Part of my job is to listen to my clients. Actually, it is extremely important part. During these conversations I could hear what they want their renovated apartment to look like, what they unquestionably don’t want, what are they afraid of et cetera. What I have discovered during those meetings is that there are some things which are common for plenty of my clients. Plenty of them wanna have very modern homes, that would look a little different than apartments of all their colleagues. Simultaneously, they are really afraid to be creative. At the beginning I was rather angry about that and was trying to fight against this kind of attitude. Later on, I did find a solution I am offering for such customers. My solution is… wallpapers. They allow to go creative, but at the same time- look elegant. I want to show you some concrete examples of that.
