TRY IT FIRST ON A WALLPAPER APP!
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:
Quickly mark out the wall you want to vir tually decorate.
Explore hundreds of wallpaper styles designs and colours.
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.
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.
