Hi there - These curtains were custom made for the client using a fabric called Chevron Print in Navy from Schumacher. You can purchase it through your interior designer or let me know how much you need and I can help you with it. Cheers & Happy Decorating!

That's right. We used cork floor tiles and I had my wallpaper hanger glue them on the wall. It's been great to see the young man who occupies the space use it for his own personal collection. Happy Decorating! Lisa

How did you affix the cork to the wall? Is this just an accent wall? If so, what did you use on the others? - I really love the use of color and texture!

Hi - thanks for your question. We used cork floor tiles and affixed them with the glue that comes with it. I had my wallpaper guy install these. Good luck! Lisa

Hi - thanks for the feedback! It has been great to see the youngster who owns this room cover his wall with his own personal stuff. We used cork floor tile for this job and had a wallpaper installer glue up the tiles. Good luck!

The Thinker. Carve out a quiet corner in the room, complete with desk, corkboard walls, and an inspiring view for your scholastic achiever. Having a dedicated space to plan his next big move is a dream come true.
Julia Pockett added this to Discover the Unstoppable Advantages of Cork for the Home
Uses in the HomeAcoustic backing. Cork's compressive strength and acoustic and thermal attributes make it a popular backing for many other materials in commercial buildings. It's even used to insulate some parts of space shuttles! These same qualities make it an ideal choice for exterior walls or walls in children's play areas, where it can help block noise and maintain temperature, and can also double as a pinboard.

Sandra Doerfer added this to M3: Holz
Kork als Wandvertäfelung und Dämmstoff Kork zeichnet sich, dank der Honigwabenstruktur, durch eine hervorragende Wärmedämmung aus, weswegen er häufig als natürlicher Dämmstoff und als Wandverkleidung eingesetzt wird. Außerdem besitzt Kork schallisolierende Eigenschaften: Besonders im Kinderzimmer oder Musikraum ist eine Korkwand eine praktische, natürliche Lösung – und der Nachbar nebenan kann sich fortan nicht mehr beschweren. Die Korkwand kann gleichzeitig als Pinnwand verwendet werden; Bilder, Mindmaps und Notizen finden hier ihren Platz. Toben Sie sich aus, lassen Sie Ihrer Kreativität freien Lauf und verändern Sie den Look der Wand, so oft Sie wollen.
