I am as an architect. Part of my job is to listen to my clients. Actually, it is greatly relevant part. During these conversations I usually hear what they want their new flat to look like, what they definitely don’t want, what are they afraid of etc.. What I have noticed during those conversations is that there are some things that are common for many my clients. Many of them wanna have rather modern homes, which would look a little different than apartments of all their friends. Simultaneously, they are very afraid to be creative. At the beginning I was rather angry with this and was doing my best to fight with that type of attitude. Later on, I managed to find a solution I can offer for such customers. My solution is… wallpapers. They enable to go creative, but still look elegant. I wanna give you 2 concrete examples of that.
1 of my client was a manager of a popular bank. He wanted his flat to be very elegant and impressive. In other words- he wanted his guest to be jealous about how great apartment he has. It is was also very relevant for him that his guests know that he has that amazing taste – read something more about wallpaper. He wanted to keep all very elegant and simple. Firstly, he wasn’t even interested to hear about wallpapers.
Nevertheless, I managed to convinced him that this can be very good option for him. Because of this, he may show to his guests not only his elegant side, but also that more crazy one. We agreed to use stadium wallpaper in a living room. At this moment, he seems to be highly happy with our choice.Later I was also renowating apartment of successful business woman. As we extremely liked each other, during our conversation we were also talking about our dreams, past et cetera. She admitted that she loved travelling when she was younger and that she eventually has travelled more than 40 countries.
At this moment, she can’t do it anymore because she is too busy with duties. However she hopes that she would be able to travel again when she is older. Therefore, I suggested that we find map mural in her bedroom. Because of this, she may wake up every day, seeing the world and all of those amazing places which are waiting for her and that she would visit in the future.
