If you’re looking to add texture and character to your home without shelling out for custom millwork or construction, you’re in luck: The founder and creative director of Zio + Sons, Anthony D’Argenzio, has teamed up with wallcovering studio A-Street Prints on a new collection of wallpapers that mimic textural elements like brick and beadboard.
“My goal for the collaboration was to create a collection full of handmade textures with the feel of honest-quality materials” D’Argenzio tells House Beautiful. “I believe there is a style for anyone from the line, whether renovating an old home, decorating a contemporary city apartment, or building your dream home from the ground up.” And the best part? At $140 a roll, the papers are a much more affordable (and much less permanent) solution than adding real brick or millwork.
The collaboration marks D’Argenzio’s first foray into wallcoverings, with inspiration stemming from antique designs and textures—but with a modern twist. Some of the wallpaper designs from this collection include the Old Hudson Damask—which is a recreation of an antique wallpaper that D’Argenzio discovered while renovating his property in upstate New York—and Artisan Plaster, a textured wallcovering that’s meant to look like European plasterwork.
D'Argenzio and the A-Street team worked closely to develop the textures of the papers, layering multiple colors of paint and perfecting tones so that the resulting patterns have a strikingly realistic effect. As a result, as D’Argenzio himself says, these “handpainted, vintage-inspired prints and true handcrafted materials will surely add a sense of old-world wonder and unique character to your abode.”
