IF THESE WALLS COULD TALK, THE STORY THEY WOULD TELL IS ONE OF GREAT DESIGN.
by Cindy Ratcliff
here’s something to be said for a great wall, and designers today are letting walls do all of the talking. No longer content to be a simple room divider, walls are taking on a life of their own through a blend of traditional materials that give them personality like never before. Today’s walls are bold, unique and could quite possibly be the most memorable element in the room. A dramatically designed wall creates a focal point, even in spaces with a more traditional design. From wood paneling to textured tiles to ornate wainscoting, there is a wall design to fit any taste and any space. Even wallpaper is making a comeback this year, according to Eva Quateman, principal in charge and lead designer at Chicago-based Eva Quateman Interiors. Not truly popular since the 1980s, today’s wallpaper is anything but out of date, especially when you use it in a non-traditional context. “I love wallpaper on ceilings. It’s a great look,” said Quateman, whose design firm provides both residential and 6
commercial interior design and renovation services for projects across the country. “I also like to use it in different applications, such as in cabinets or in the back of bookcases. It’s like a little surprise.” A good wall covering isn’t just for large spaces, either. Quateman said she likes them for small rooms, too. Don’t be afraid to use them in a powder room or even a hallway. “They can add a big impact to a small space,” she said. Whether you’re starting small or going big, dressing a wall should be a part of your overall room design. Here are some more ideas to keep you on trend as you consider revitalizing your room.
A FEEL FOR IT Walls are a great place for adding texture to a space. Along just one wall or as part of the overall space, texture adds interest and creates warmth. Texture looks especially on target as part of a muted color and is an expert way to add depth to the room. Choose from nubby wallpaper, treated plaster or coverings designed to mimic brick or other stonework. You’ll also find an ample supply of tex-
tured tiles and panels that offer a three-dimensional design.
Making the short jump from window to wall, fabric can completely transform a room. Velvets in dark, rich shades or a lighter-weight length of fabric with a simple or geometric design can offer instant style as a wall covering. Best of all, fabrics add versatility, too, because they are easier to change out than traditional wallpaper or plasters.
HEAVY METAL Metallics are big again this year — literally big. Imagine a textured metallic that spans an entire wall. It adds instant sophistication to any space and can work for contemporary and traditional décor in any room. Combine this look with mirrors and cozy lighting for a more dramatic effect.
A NEW DIMENSION Painted wood may not sound like a bold new trend for walls, but when you pair the right colors with the right woodwork, it can completely transform the room. Think wainscoting, beadboard and molding, only instead of the glossy white paint
that usually is associated with them, you paint them the same color as the wall. This is especially striking when combined with a dark wall color.
IN A WORD The writing is on the wall — literally. One of the biggest trends is taking the written word and putting it big and bold on a wall. Introduced last year, it continues to make a statement in 2015 as a way to truly personalize your space. You’ll find word and phrases printed on ready-to-hang wallpaper, but you also can custom-order decals if you’re looking for just the right words.

LIGHTING TIPS FOR LUXE LIGHTING STRAIGHT FROM THE 2015 DREAMHOME. by Janeane Thompson
ighting is often one of the most underutilized and overlooked elements in interior design. On the most basic level, what’s the use of creating a luxury space if there isn’t enough lighting to see the artistic elements of the room. Playing it safe with lighting is a real pity, according to Anne Coyle, with Anne Coyle Interiors and the creative mind behind the 2015 DreamHome dining room at Merchandise Mart. “Lighting is one of the really fun parts about doing a room,” said Coyle. “Light and reflection … and shiny accents are what make a room. If there’s no reflection, light or metal or crystal, I think a room feels super dull.” Similarly, Marshall Erb, from Marshall Morgan Erb

Design Inc., said lighting is one of the main elements he focuses on when creating a space. “I am a big fan of wall sconces and wall fixtures in general,” said Erb. “Not everybody has a collection of artwork, so what wall sconces and wall fixtures can do is provide lighting via architecture. They provide depth where you’re drawn to look across the room at [the lighting].” Erb is such a large proponent of lighting in design that he centered his concept for the 2015 DreamHome foyer at Merchandise Mart on a vintage Tom Greene chandelier, originally manufactured in the 1970s. Traditionally, foyers are spaces that people move through quickly, so Erb’s intention was to design a space that had enough dramatic impact to be memorable. “The starting point … was the light fixture,” said Erb. “I’ve seen other works by that same artist. I knew that based on the scale and proportion of the space I had to deal with I needed something that was going to be able to hold its own. From there, I created a collection around it.” In a similar way, Coyle chose the Ebanista chandelier hanging in her DreamHome dining room design to make a big impact on the space and create interest. “The lighting fixture I chose is one of the two stars of the 10
show,” said Coyle. “That’s how I feel lighting in a dining room should be. It’s one of the few places in the house where people aren’t just walking through the room, so you can really have something huge and hang it really low and get a lot of impact out of that.” Aside from being pleasing to the eye, dramatic lighting features, similar to the ones used in the dining room and foyer, can be used by designers to say something about their clients (or fictional clients, as was the case with the DreamHome rooms). Pieces with personality can communicate volumes about a homeowner’s interests and lifestyle, as is the case with Coyle’s fictional client and her choice of the Ebanista chandelier. “It states what kind of house this is,” said Coyle. “It’s kind of old fashioned in its appeal, but also super modern because of the scale of it in such a small room.” Although chandeliers are at the center of both the dining room and foyer DreamHome designs, Erb warned that low-hanging ceiling fixtures should be used only where appropriate. He notes that not many people have ceilings high enough to effectively use chandeliers in living spaces other than dining rooms or kitchens. Fixtures hanging from the
ceiling really need something to anchor them, such as a table, kitchen island or, in the case of the 2015 DreamHome foyer, a large vase of flowers. With all of the innovative ways designers can integrate lighting concepts into their designs, a central electrical control is a must. Home automation solutions from companies such as Crestron, Control4 and Lutron can make all of the difference in maximizing your lighting choices. “Between decorative fixtures, architectural fixtures, indirect lighting, soffit lighting and under-cabinet lighting, there are so many variables. It can create a switching nightmare,” said Erb. “I always recommend going with an easy-to-use application. You can even adjust the lighting levels of your space (with your cell phone).” Erb predicted that home automation systems are going to be one of the next big trends in interior design as a marriage between technology and design would benefit both designers and clients alike. “I think that whole house control systems are going to be more and more prevalent, said Erb. “Not only for lighting, but also for stereos, heating and air conditioning, security, window shades and window treatments.”
