In this case, professionals advise using imitations.
This trend has become widespread in wallpaper design. It not only allows you to give the room an unusual, attractive look, but also quite beneficial from an economic point of view. It is much easier and cheaper to paste over the walls with imitation wallpaper than to make repairs from natural materials. There are several types of imitations in wallpaper design..

Under the tree
The recent boom in the use of natural materials in interior decoration is a double-edged sword. And the tree is no exception. On the one hand, wooden flooring is fashionable and stylish, but on the other hand, it is a significant investment of time and, most importantly, finance.
