With the trend for the simple, paired back decorating and up-cycling showing no signs of fading, today I’m showing you the hottest trend your walls will love – distressed walls. Interior lovers are getting light headed over the authentic patina found in plasterwork. And I think you will too.
Distressed walls harks back to crumbling country piles, loft living or the souks of Marrakech… distressed walls will replace wallpaper and paint as the colours of choice as the natural shades in the plaster take centre stage. Yes – it looks like your home’s walls are peeling, cracked or tumbling down – but that’s what will put you ahead of the style pack.
