Wall in a Box

Elect to make a statement!  Every room has a focal point and York is playing up your room’s best features with great color and design that quickly and effectively takes a feature wall from ho-hum to totally dynamic!  There are so many great selling points about featuring a wall:  focal walls are installation friendly (no corners or windows), cost effective due to limited coverage area, and huge on design impact!



Once you start looking around
your home you will find lots of
interesting areas to bring to life
with a single wall wallpaper
design. Spice up the bedroom
with a warm nutmeg brick
pattern to create a loft effect –
aged and restful.





Dress up the great room
with a room dividing wall
that instantly changes a
flat wall into aged
Georgian brick – antique
and inviting.





Frame a fireplace.  Take an
ordinary mantel to extraordinary
by adding our brick pattern to
the plain plaster surrounding it –
warm and cozy.




Add a pop of drama with
diagonal lines.  A staircase
is a unique focal point that
is easily accentuated. Use
our brick pattern on the wall
under the stairs and add a
playful accent like a mod
chair next to it to complete
the look – bold and playful.

There is so much to love about Britain’s newest royal.  She’s smart, she’s classy, she’s genuine, and she’s top notch in fashion savvy!

You just never know.  Kate’s favorite colors?  Let’s start with the sapphire family ring and all things richly blue.


Gina Shaw, our VP of Design feels that blues and navy will trend upward in 2013. Keep your eyes open for some great new blues in York’s wallpapers.  In the meantime check out our Kate Middleton runway of designs:

Hello Yellow!

Yellow is everywhere on the catwalk for Spring 2012 ! Garden favorites in bright florals made us hungry for the beauty and fragrance of summer.  Wisps of soft buttery linen gauze floated down the runway, and bold primary hues returned, looking crisp, fresh and new.Home decor is no exception to this trend, with everything from upholstery in citrine to wallpapers in rain boot yellow making a comeback.

Yellow increases self esteem, strengthens health and has a calming effect on anger and frustration. Citrine is know as “The Merchant Stone” for the ability to attract and hold financial success. As we look to Spring, as hope and prosperity begins to rise, yellow is leading the way. Yellow is good!
