And The Oscar Goes To York®

Watching the Oscars is a sensory delight for the eyes.  Fashion masters cleverly adorn Hollywood’s beautiful elite for a fabulous night of design inspiration.  Design that is quickly translated into home fashion – the gap between the runway and interiors has never been slimmer.

DE8818, Velocity

It’s not your imagination about the decidedly Art Deco theme that permeated the Oscars.  The much anticipated Great Gatsby film releasing May 2013 has already added a new level of glamour from gowns to wallpaper.   Halle Berry’s striking statuesque beauty reaches new heights in her gleaming gown, as will your home with Candice Olson’s Velocity pattern – just the right balance of graphite gray and silver Mylar.   Accent your room with a mirror paneled side table and silk toss cushions in deep gray.

DE8839, Hourglass

Or perhaps you like sophisticated curves and gentle arches?  If the magnificent Chrysler Building in NYC is your favorite architectural masterpiece, and your style is more in line with Naeem Khan’s art deco powerhouse gown draped so elegantly on Stacy Keibler (George Clooney’s significant other) then Candice Olson’s Hourglass design awaits you.  Always elegant, this wallpaper is a show stopper on either a feature wall or surrounding the entire room.

DE8824, Grillwork Mica

If you are all about the bling and you find best actress nominee Naomi Watts’ sparkling gown takes your breath away, you need to jump into jazzing up your home décor with Candice Olson’s Grillwork Mica.  Lots of flash and dazzle for that special accent wall.

DE9003, Dotted Paisley

Sophistication finds its romantic roots with opulent lace that gracefully shimmers and glistens with subtle precious metal accents.  Sandra Bullock wears her softer side for all to see on Oscar night in this beautiful gown that is a wonderful combination; elegant yet whimsical.  Following this theme in your home is easy with Candice Olson’s Dotted Paisley – playfully elegant!

If black tie is a bit dark for your taste, make your statement with 18 Karat Gold.  Gold is trending up again with its warmth and classic sophistication.  Gold never looked better than on Catherine Zeta Jones, or on your walls with Ron Redding’s many golden options in his new 18 Karat collection.

DE8855, Dazzled

Formal doesn’t have to be without color either.  A splash of red shot with shimmering gold can steal the show either on the red carpet or in your home.  Or opt for dreamy in softest aqua; a soothing statement in a sea of glitz.  In the home this color generates a restful haven that is almost spa-like.

RZ3300, Contessa

If setting the trend is important to you in your apparel and home, go directly to the boldly quiet sophistication of sparkly ginger to be at the pinnacle of vogue.  Complimentary to all, but especially irresistible to gorgeous redheads like Jessica Chastain, this color captures the innovative award both at the Oscars and in your home.  Glam, glitz, shimmer and romance; your style is ready to shine whether you wear it or your walls do!

Please be Seated!


Chippendale, Sheraton or Hepplewhite; whatever your dining room style nothing
accents it like the decorative touches we add during the holidays.   Truly, this is the
season for shimmer and shine, for sparkle and dazzle.   Today’s dining areas are surrounded by opulent wallcoverings, ornate furniture and abundantly lush table tops,
so whatever your exact style, go for layers of luxury for the best impact!




An eclectic arrangement
of candlesticks on a
pretty buffet softly reflect
light during the holidays
and continue to look
gorgeous through the
long winter season.







Evergreens gracing the
table add a deep hue
to sparkling white
tablecloths and chairs.






A shiny mix of silver and gold ornaments nestled in a sterling candy dish or brimming over the top of a crystal bowl lend their sheen to a beautiful cherry table.  The warm glow of filigree tea lights cast a golden glow on blonde contemporary woods while fresh cut flowers add fragrant beauty to a sophisticated party table.


Or for a dining experience that is truly heavenly, be seated with your wings nestled comfortably behind you and dine on divinity fudge.

At York Wallcoverings we believe your walls are the perfect place to accent your style and pull your theme together.  Our new Be Seated wall design by Ronald Redding Designs is that wonderful mix of whimsy and elegance that will blend with many décor themes running the gamut from whimsy to ultra sophisticated.  Pull up a chair, have a seat, sit back and appreciate the food and once you’re done, relax and enjoy your gorgeous dining room!
