Design Court is in Session and You have Been Subpoenaed

Textured Walls | House of Valentina

Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen.  Design court is now in Session.  I am calling the case of Textured Walls Vs Flat Walls.  Please raise your right hand and solemnly swear to fairly try this case...

Let's begin by entering exhibit A, the before photos of the subject in question.  These photos are of my client's home who is in the Atlanta area.  She and her family have recently moved back from abroad and have just bought their first family home which might need a coat or three of paint...

As you can clearly see, these walls are yellow, very yellow.  But they are also textured.  In the case of textured walls vs flat walls, there is no debate about the color.   It has to go.  But should the texture stay?

My client wants them to go.  Scraped, smoothed, and all evidence of their existence removed forever and ever.  May the yellow rest in peace!  The flat wall is cleaner, lighter, and more modern feeling, she says.  It's what people normally do.  Enter Exhibit B, the Flat Wall:

But let's here from the defense.  Why keep the textured walls?  First, because they are cool, especially with grey paint.  Second, they are different and unexpected and that makes them worth considering.  Third, they add character that is hard to come by in suburban homes.  Enter Exhibit C: Textured wall photos... perhaps we can still win this case by simply suggesting a change of color?
