Graphic designs within commercial residents

These photos are from a recent commercial job we did. Our graphic designer sat down for several meetings with our clients to design this wallpaper from scratch. This will be a showroom for cars. This wallpaper is all about the details in the design. The centre of the design is meant to flow with the room, creating the illusion of a curve.

Once he had designed the layout from scratch and it was finalised with the clients, we were able to move onto the printing and cutting stage. We then went on site and installed the wallpaper. If you are looking for a design for your showroom or a commercial room but do not know where to start, give us an email and we would be happy to have a meeting with you. We are the perfect one-stop shop. From designing all the way to installation. We can also make any sign you can think of and design and install car wraps! Have a look at our sister site, to find out more.

Shrinking the pattern to fit your needs

As a part of our customisation, not only can we enlarge the pattern for you but we can shrink it also! This makes our wallpaper perfect for all kinds of crafts. From doing up furniture, to play kitchens even to dollhouses!

We have done many samples in a dollhouse size for people. See above is the size of the original pattern and the size it would come as for a sample. If you just ordered our normal sample pattern size then it would look very large and out of scale to the rest of the dollhouse. The photo below is what the pattern looks like when it is shrunk. This looks a lot more natural inside the dollhouse.

All you need to do is mention that it is for a dollhouse or that you would like it shrunk and we will happily make the wallpaper to fit your needs. We charge no extra for this change, even though we make no profit from our samples. This is because at BC Magic wallpaper we want every customer to walk away happy and satisfied no matter how big or small the job!

What patterns will fit perfectly into your Hamptons style room?

The Hamptons style is a bright fresh, coastal vibe that has an airy feel to it. This style works well in a home as it makes you feel relaxed and calm from the moment you walk in. Because you want to keep the room light and airy, you wouldn’t want to clutter the room with a pattern that is too busy. This could drive you away from the Hamptons style.   A great example of this is our Stylised Leaves pattern. The photo below is it in Grey 1 of our colour chart but this could also work in any of our neutrals, blues  or darker greys.

As for colour palette, you would want to stick to blues, neutrals and greys. These fit perfectly into the style and easily work with other colours throughout the room. Having a white background with a pop of light colour is a great way to accentuate the pattern. Using a white/off-white background also allows the room to stay bright and light. All of our pattern colours can be altered to fit what you are envisioning. We can even send you a digital mock-up to show you what the colours will look like in your chosen pattern.

Herringbone Line Vs Zig Zag Stripe

Herringbone line and Zig Zag Stripe are two very popular patterns with our customers. This makes sense as they have a lot of similarities in their design.

They have the same concept in the design however, the biggest and most obvious difference is the spacing between each vertical line. As Herringbone Line is a more spaced out pattern we would recommend putting this on a longer wall. Anything longer than 2 meters and you will get the full effect of the pattern. It’s also better if you are looking for a simple pattern that adds something to the room without being the statement piece.

Zig Zag Stripe, on the other hand, has a shorter spaced pattern. This means it can work in smaller areas as you will see more of the pattern. If you are looking for something a bit more detailed then Herringbone Line is the way to go. I find that Zig Zag Stripe is a good middle ground. It has a very busy pattern however if you go for neutral or grey colour it does not overwhelm the room. Therefore, It defiantly is a significant piece to a room but does not overpower and space.

Commercial spaces

Along with residential we also do a lot of commercial spaces. We do a lot of cafes and restaurants especially within our local area of Christchurch. As our company also runs GPSigns we can not only set the commercial space up with wallpaper but we also have a graphic designer that can design any signage for the space. We can do anything from footpath signs to window film to car wraps.

We will happily come to your space to do a free measure and quote your walls and any signage you need. From there we can decide what is the best material for your space is. With our wallpaper for commercial areas, we tend to recommend our waterproofing coat. This allows you to wipe down the wallpaper with a damp cloth if need be and adds a protective layer over the ink making it more durable to scratches and marks. If your setting up or revamping your business in Christchurch send us an email and we can set up a time to come and give you a free quote and measure.
