Wouldn’t you love our Zig Zag Stripe wallpaper in your house? 

Our Zig Zag Stripe wallpaper flys off the shelves. People go crazy for this pattern. But why? For its versatility, and minimalist style.

The minimalist style was invented in the early 1970s but was not truly embraced as such a popular style until the 20th century. Today patterns as simply as the Zig Zag Stripe fit perfectly into the trendy minimalist style that you see everywhere in magazines. Our Zig Zag Stripe wallpaper adds pattern to a room without overpowering it.

Zig Zag Stripe is a very versatile pattern. Say you are decorating a study that, in a few years time will become baby’s room. This pattern transitions well from a sophisticated study to a fun baby’s room. All you need to do is add elements into the room to dress the wallpaper one way or the other. This Minimalistic pattern can be dressed to fit any room. It can work in small spaces also as it will not overcrowd the area. If you would like to see this pattern in a different colour or would like a quote please send us a message. We are more than happy to accommodate.

A quick history on the timeless check pattern

A quick history on the timeless check pattern.

We have two new wallpaper patterns out. One is called Buffalo check in grey and the other is a slightly smaller print called check pattern in peach. The check pattern is a timeless look that everyone can recognize. It is everywhere. On clothing, furniture, even tea towels. This pattern has been around for century yet never goes out of fashion. But why is this and what is the history behind check?

The plaid pattern was around in the 1500s when the Scottish used kilt colours to define what clan or geographical region they were from.  The checker pattern was later appropriated by British and American manufacturers, who created a patterned fabric which resembled tartan in the Woolrich Woolen Mills that still stands to this day. The name Buffalo check came from the owners of the mill. The mill began producing the buffalo check clothing in the 1850s. 

 The pattern originally became associated with lumberjacks.  After several decades of developing this pattern turned into one of the western worlds biggest mainstream patterns. It was not until the 1970s when check became popular within interior design elements. From there the pattern blossomed. We doubt this trend will ever go out of style.

What is BC Magic Wallpaper made from

What is BC Magic Wallpaper made from?

Our self-adhesive wallpaper is still a very new product to New Zealand. Therefore a lot of people do not understand our product properly. Here is a quick rundown explaining the three parts that make up this wallpaper. The material, the ink, and the self-adhesive.

The material comes in roles and is made from 100% polyester fabric. It is Class A1 fire rated in the US, non-toxic, green and phthalates free. We are proud to say our wallpaper is Environmentally safe and bio-degradable over time and not to mention reusable.

The material that makes the wallpaper starts off as a plain white colour. To get the ink onto the wallpaper we use both a HP latex printer and a Roland eco-solvent printer. The rolls of material are put in the machine and then we work through a computer program to tell the machine what pattern, width and height it needs to print. From there the machine prints the ink onto the material. This tends to take Aproxamitly 30 mins to print two panels. The ink sets used on both printers are GREENGUARD Gold certified for low VOC’s and indoor safety. They are completely non-toxic and safe to put up and have around children.

 

The self-adhesive backing is what differentiates our wallpaper to traditional wallpaper. This takes so much hassle out of installing the wallpaper. The self-adhesive is strong enough to stick to the wall but light enough to come off clean. Because our self-adhesive is clear it means that there are no marks left of the wall once removed.

BC Magic Wallpaper at The Crossing

BC Magic Wallpaper at The Crossing

You heard us right our wallpaper is now featured at The Crossing in Christchurch. It is located in the parent’s room. This is to the right of the service desk when you walk in from the car park.  

BEFORE: This was the wall before our wallpaper was up. This room is a stunning, well-designed room, however, by turning this blank wall into a colorful creative mural added a wow factor to the room.

Installation:  This wallpaper mural is our Wave Mural pattern. The wallpaper was customised to fit the height of  three meters tall and almost six meters wide. It took two hours to install as it was a larger wall and needed more precision as the panels were a lot longer and heavier than normal. We enlarged the pattern so that it would fit the height of the wall nicely. We also designed the wallpaper so it would start were the couch ended. This meant that the mural would not be cut off or look out of place.

AFTER: We think the end result looks wonderful and fits perfectly into the atmosphere of the parent’s room. We made sure that the colors within the wallpaper were found in the room. This meant that the wallpaper added the room but did not overpower it. Our wallpaper is great for children’s rooms as you can remove the wallpaper and reuse it in a different space. Not to mention you can get very creative with the wallpaper as it is not permanent.
