Just when my husband and I have decided to move away from the wall flats we used for the headboard in our previous master bedroom, I discover that Inhabit has released new wall flat designs that make my heart go pitter patter. I MUST find another place to use these:
This is easily my favorite of the new designs. I love the graphic, geometric shapes, and I imagine they’d be gorgeous if painted in a bold color.
If you’ve ever tried to imagine how the wall flats would look painted, just check out this gorgeous gray! There’s a reason gray is my favorite neutral. This looks like a high-end boutique hotel — not a bad look for a bedroom.
This pattern is…interesting…but not one of my favorites. It reads a little like cardboard when painted in the color shown above. This is one case where I think the flats would work best in white to add some texture. Color is just too much on such a busy pattern.
In case you haven’t seen or heard of Inhabit’s wall flats before, they are lightweight tiles that can be used to create large-scale dimensional walls of any size and shape. You can use them to create an uninterrupted sculptural wall, or you can do what my husband and I did, and use it on a smaller scale as a headboard or a piece of art. While they used to be made of bamboo pulp, it appears the wall panels are now made of bagasse, an incredibly renewable resource that is a byproduct of the process used to extract juice from sugarcane or sorghum stalks. This means the tiles are biodegradable, compostable and recyclable with your other paper products.
Why It’s Green:
- Made from material that would otherwise become waste
- Biodegradable, compostable and recyclable
