Turn functional into fabulous with decorative wall coverings

Jack has made perfect use of wall coverings to bring spaces to life with texture and depth. They give character to functional spaces like washrooms, mud rooms, and laundry rooms, making them warm and welcoming.

Decorative wallpaper and murals are easier to put up than you might think, and give a room an instant makeover! What room in your home would you most like to transform?

Wall panels give a room a luxurious look

Speaking of walls, have you seen the elegant wall panels in the dining room and home office?

You can add this deluxe detail to your own home with a mitre saw and wall mouldings from your local home improvement store. You can even use picture frames if you don’t have the power tools!

Tie it all together with a theme colour

Jack Celli has tied the rooms of the main floor together with a blue motif. It starts in the living room with the twin ottomans and accent pillows, continues through the dining room, servery, and family room, then finishes in the kitchen with the chairs and cabinets.

Using a recurring theme or colour is a simple but beautiful way to unify a space. Perhaps you have a favourite colour in your home already you could add on to?

Create spaces for folks to gather

There are so many great spots for guests to sit and relax while entertaining in the King City Showhome! Choose the totally comfy sofas in the family room, sit up to the awesome kitchen island, or kick back in the super cool leather chairs in the basement lounge - what will your go-to gathering place be?
