Many do-it-yourselfers are reluctant to have anything to do with wallpaper because, despite advances in the last few years, it's still somewhat difficult for an amateur to handle.
Graham & Brown, a British firm, has just introduced Simply Color, a new type of wall covering designed to eliminate some of the hassle of installation.
It comes in six subtle tone-on-tone, lightly textured colors: sky, natural, mint green, sandstone, lavender and pewter. Each color has a coordinated border. Printed on a heavier-than-usual vinyl substrate, the covering resists tearing, and is engineered so that each roll perfectly matches every other roll -- no need to worry about dye-lot numbers. In addition, the edges match, so there's no waste cutting strips to fit a pattern.
Simply Color wall coverings are available at Home Depot for $15.96 for a roll of wallpaper and $9.96 for border. For the store nearest you, call 770-433-8211.
