My two most important jobs in life – Wallpaper craftsman by day & Dad by night. I never sleep… almost. Barry Bernau

I started my career as a wallpaper hanger, at age 12. Working the summers for my dad, pasting wallpaper and matching light switch plates. Shortly after working those summers, I ventured out to start my own business, Bernau Designs in 1990.

My career has taken me from hanging wallpaper to faux finishing to working as a scenic artist on a movie set to working on the Nuclear Cowboyz and Disney on Ice show for Feld Entertainment, to writing my first IOS app that made The UK Telegraph’s The 30 best property apps …  all the way to doing the best wallpaper job you will ever see!

A Passion for Installing Wallpaper

Through the years, I have worked with many talented people from designers to builders to people that were constantly perfecting their craft or trade…

Someone once asked me, “What does it take to do a good wallpaper job?” My response was, Pride…pride and a love or passion for what you do.  Pride because my name is associated with my work. My work reflects who I am. Love because that is what drives you to work late nights and getting up early in the morning.

I believe there is a common thread with those successful and who are the best in their respected industries. And what distinguishes those people from the rest… is pride in one’s self and a love or a passion for what they do.

I have learned something from them all!

    Can’t afford a steamer? Try removing wallpaper with laundry detergent… Prior to starting, test a small area at the bottom of the wallcovering, on a seam, near the corner of the wall.  Try to peel a little bit off the wallpaper by pulling upward.  If it peels easy, congratulations, it’s probably a fabric back vinyl […]
