Putting a twist on wall paper

22 Aug

“How do people come up with such ideas!…. using old hard book covers as wall paper?”, I remember wondering to myself. . The idea might not settle too well with many, it is ‘different’ but if you think outside the box, the possibilities are limitless. Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way. (Edward de Bono) .  This idea was developed as a collaboration of the redesign team at Fretex West Norway. Thumbs up! I can imagine using it in many places.  My imagination has been helped by the way the blocks have been used in different places at the Fretex West Norway offices as seen in the pictures below:

Inspiration for a great work-out!

And below, Magny Tjelta put up a display of the redesign wall paper in a furniture shop show room in Stavanger

I have to admit that  at first, the idea didn’t sit too well with me. Now, I love it. Guess it has grown on me :).

Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun. (Mary Lou Cook)
