Cheaper to paint sure but a flat out of the can color. These things are decorative faux finishes. I know for a fact the going rate for a professional decorative painter is anywhere from $20-$40 a square foot! And that's just for the simple finishes. Looks like you can reuse these. That seems worth it. Did anyone check out that upload a photo thing? Looks like I just found my new christmas gifts to give to friends and family.


Apartment Therapy Los Angeles | Casart Wallcoverings: When Painting's Not An Option

First off, you have a cute space to work with. While I agree with most of the comments above I think the walls need some texture. I know decorative painting and faux finishing is expensive. I'll assume you're not a decorative painter. I've seen repositionable, removable, and reusable wallcoverings with the faux finishes and decorative painting already printed on the wall coverings.

I think a faux linen in light blue would compliment your current furniture. I know these wallcoverings are very durable and can even be wiped down in case they get marked up with dirt, etc.

Since they can be removed without any damage to the walls it's worth looking into. You could even change it out with a red in a different faux finish. Now that would look sharp and dramatic. Nice place for cocktails.

I know the wallcoverings come in all kinds of different finishes. They look very nice. Best of luck with all of these great ideas. I know your new room will look spectacular.
