Rollerwall creates the beauty of wallpaper
without the paper. Using ordinary paint, it
completes a wall in 20 minutes. Rollerwall
is better than wallpaper because it cannot
peel or tear, there are no seams, and it never
needs to be steamed off. Just repaint and
it’s gone. We have 300+ patterns, including
florals, woodgrains, geometrics, randoms,
and more. Each pattern can be applied in
multiple colors to create a beautiful effect.
Rollerwall even works on surfaces that
cannot be wallpapered, such as cinder block
and textured walls.

CIDQ 2017-2016 Comparison Since 1974, the Council for Interior Design Qualification (CIDQ)
has been on a mission to ensure interior designers are competent
to meet industry standards not only for aesthetics, but for public
health, safety, and welfare as well. The importance of industry
standards remains a crucial point for the profession today,
as evidenced by the positive momentum CIDQ is experiencing.
Registration for the 2017 National Council for Interior Design
Qualification (NCIDQ) Exam increased 17 percent over 2016,
which had been the previous high. And, end-of-year totals
for 2017 saw 31,605 NCIDQ Certified Interior Designers,
a record 11,524 Active Status Certificate Holders who continue
to support CIDQ on an annual basis, and a 32 percent increase
in new NCIDQ Certificate Holders.
According to the CIDQ 2017 Annual Report, the Fall 2017
NCIDQ Exam also marked the first time in CIDQ’s history the
examination was administered outside the United States and
Canada, with 21 exams administered during a trial window at
testing facilities in the Middle East region. The trial will aid CIDQ
in assessing the potential for future testing administrations abroad.
The most recent published CIDQ tallies show the positive
movement continuing, with 1,300 approved applications for the
Spring 2018 Exam, up from 852 for the same period of 2017.
