The Bold and the Beautiful:  simply apply a classic stripe.  Pinstripes, wide-wale, awning and variegated; we’ve never met a stripe we didn’t like!  Bold statements that provide impact like no other.  Keep them dramatic and clean with this perfect two color combo, or use them as a backdrop for Pantone’s color of the year – Emerald – and change it up with the latest color accent next year.  Just as these bold platform shoes suggest you strut your stuff, so too should your walls “take it to the runway”!

Contemporary made Svelte:  simply add the gleam of Mylar.  Bling reigns supreme.  Don’t settle for boring walls that lack your personal style pizzazz.  Dress them up with dynamic design in the hot new fashion favorites:  chevrons and houndstooth.  And this isn’t your grandpa’s houndstooth suit or your grandma’s old flame stitch rocking chair!  These vital new designs incorporate edgy styling with the gleam of Mylar.  Urbane and classy – walls that you can respect!
