Ready for a spring home spruce-up? Local Randolph-based Brewster Home Fashions’ contemporary offshoot, WallPops, provides the ultimate in cheap and chic with its line of wall decals and DIY fixtures.
“The glory is anyone can do it without fear of getting it wrong,” says Brewster’s creative director, Paula Berberian. Brewster is one of America’s oldest independent, family-owned wall covering companies and spans five generations. “There’s no fuss, if you change your mind, you can change your design,” she says. “For under a hundred bucks, you can dramatically change a room with these products.”

Have some fun with:

Decals:
Forget wallpaper — use these self-adhering prints for a fun, graphic effect. “These are made in America with a technologically advanced micro-sphere adhesive,” Berberian says. “They can be peeled off without harming paint and leave no sticky residue. So, it’s not a huge commitment. Even if you have no artistic ability, you can choose a wall art kit and it’ll look great.”

HOM_RoomPanel_3c_06

Room Panels:
Add a few degrees of separation. These panels hang from a ceiling as a room partition, or from a window as an alternative to blinds and curtains. “These are lightweight and easy to hang. They define a space, or can be used on a wall to add dimension,” Berberian says.

Window Film:
They’re available in privacy film or decorative stained glass. “Use in a room with a window where you don’t want a curtain, but want privacy,” suggests Berberian. “The film can take up a whole window or just partial. The stained glass gives a very traditional look and is so expressive, but affordable.”

Stained Glass Applique     Corners:
“These can be used on windows, mirrors or cabinet corners,” says Berberian. “There are no right or wrongs — use wherever you need a nice accent.”

Chandeliers
The finishing touch: bejeweled or fun chandeliers that fit over a standard fitting (the light bulb should not exceed 40 watts). “I’ve seen chandeliers over the years and really wanted to do a fun, trendy line,” says Berberian. “These add a little glitz to a staid area. It can be whimsical or elegant and it serves a purpose — lighting.”

WallPops is available at Home Depot, independent decor shops and an online store at www.wallpops.com.
