National Post
True lacquered walls are composed of resin and solvents and must be spray applied.

The Huffington Post

Plus, worshipping at the altar of vintage can often overlook the less-desirable trends of the era. And by "less-desirable" we mean "decor hell."

By Michael J. Berens
According to recent market studies, consumers are struggling with more than their wallets these days. Affluent shoppers in particular are feeling conflicted between their desire to spend and their aspiration to do the right thing, say the market researchers at Trendwatching.com.
