One of the expressions of the renewed taste for ornamentation noted in so many 2022 trend line-ups, will surely be more wall murals and papers used in interior design. After all, it’s an effective way to make a decorative statement fairly quickly and relatively easily. The fresh focus on walls makes it a good time for designer Katie Hunt to bring to market a connecting mural concept from her company, Remix. The designs that come in seven-panel sets that do for a standard twelve- by nine- foot wall. Additional sets can be used to cover more surfaces—like ceilings—or larger walls; a twenty-four- by nine- foot wall, for example, would require two kits.
The system requires less math by the homeowner, which in turn saves costs.
WHERE TO FIND: the Remix line is available at retailers like Home Depot.
Typically, a custom mural could sell for at least two or three times more than the $198 a Remix set costs, says Hunt,
Printed in the U.K. with environmentally-friendly processes, the quality of a Remix wallpaper mural means it reacts well to being stretched around cabinetry or a corner, says Hunt. “This paper is extremely strong, so if you are pushing it into spaces, it won’t tear.”
The non-woven surface is both wipeable and extremely forgiving of wall surface variation. Installation should present no problem for a moderately-gifted DIYer. How-to videos are available at www.remixwalls.com.
“Price point was really important for me because I wanted people to be able to say yes to more spaces,” says Hunt.
Now creating a follow-up collection, Hunt says homeowners are even more ready to embrace wall murals and papers. “I see a lot of people going for it,” she says, “deciding that they’re going to paper a wall, and that they should make it fun.”
