In other words, it is the final touch to a wall decoration. Formerly acclaimed in bourgeois houses, it is now shunned. However, it resurfaces on the front of the decor scene and marks its big return in 2019. It must be said, the use of the wall frieze has changed since Antiquity. Today, she adorns herself with colors and dresses with patterns. There are even some who act as trompe l'oeil… Anyway, the wall frieze upsets the codes and plays it modern when it is placed vertically. But we also appreciate it when it marks the separation of colors on a two-tone wall. And beyond its aesthetics, the wall frieze is useful for delimiting the spaces of an interior. Finally, it is bold and visually increases the height of the wall when it is placed less than 20cm from the ceiling. Conversely, if you have a substantial ceiling height, you can have it at a third of the height of the wall to give a more intimate and cozy atmosphere.

Retro prints, graphic lines, trompe-l'oeil effect, childish patterns, wood or metal printing ... There is something for all tastes and all decorative styles! As for the materials, the most common wall friezes are made of adhesive vinyl. And for good reason, there is nothing easier for the installation since it is enough to unroll the frieze and apply it to the desired location. Others require a layer of glue. This is the case with wall friezes in wallpaper or even non-woven models. And for those who want to give depth to the walls, think of decorative coverings in tiles or wood for a wall in relief!
