Finally, after years of dreaming about covering a wall in cork, I've found a client who is ready and willing! My client is moving into a duplex down and her son's bedroom is on the lower level. The space doesn't get a lot of sunlight so we are going to paint the walls white then cover one wall with cork. Covering just one wall will add a layer of architectural detail and prevent the space from feeling like a cocoon. The decorative and functional cork wall will serve as the backdrop for a slim metal desk, vintage blue lamp and worn leather chair. The carpet is staying so we're going to layer a striped rug on top then replace the hideous, white sconces with a pair of sleek, black lights. The icing on the cake? High gloss black/blue doors! It's a space that will grow well, actually, I kind of wish it was mine!
