No need to guess from a sam­ple how a wall­pa­per will look when it’s up. Gra­ham and Brown have de­vel­oped the first app of its kind to vi­su­alise pat­tern and colour on the wall. Just launched through the Ap­ple App Store, the app al­lows you to:

Step 1

Quickly mark out the wall you want to vir tu­ally dec­o­rate.

Step 2

Ex­plore hun­dreds of wall­pa­per styles de­signs and colours.

Step 3

See how the wall­pa­per will look in po­si­tion. Move around the room to see the de­sign from any an­gle, with dif­fer­ent light sources, or go up close and per­sonal to see the de­tail of the de­sign. Then you can share your favourites – if you wish.

Step 4

The app will cal­cu­late your roll re­quire­ments with­out you even need­ing to get out a tape mea­sure. Then you can buy your cho­sen wall­pa­per directly from the app and it will be de­liv­ered the next day.

“While there is a lot of in­spi­ra­tion to be found so­cially, on­line and in mag­a­zines, mak­ing that jump to what a wall­pa­per will look like in your own space is a chal­lenge. This app makes it easy and is very in­tu­itive,” says Alan Kemp, Gra­ham & Brown.
