About Coronavirus 2020

Washingtonian is keeping you up to date on the coronavirus around DC.

Hopefully, you’re spending a lot more time at home these days, and maybe you’re noticing your decor could use a little upgrade. DC wallpaper designer Kate Zaremba is here to help.

While everyone’s social distancing, her popular line of brightly hued papers, Kate Zaremba Company, is expediting orders free of charge, so you can get to work sprucing up that home office as soon as possible. Not only that, Zaremba is offering her wallpaper-hanging expertise gratis. Customers can direct message her on Instagram or email her to set up an online chat.

The virtual tutorials are, of course, a way to put customers at ease about DIY-ing, but Zaremba says there’s something in it for her, too: “It also gives me a chance to interact with customers in a new way that feels almost essential right now — in-person, but online. It’s a lot of fun for me to give DIY tips and advice.”

She promises that first-timers really are capable of wallpapering their own space, even by themselves. However, you will need a few other supplies—such as a utility knife or box cutter, and a sponge or rag— but nothing so exotic that you can’t order it from Amazon or Home Depot. So, to keep your walls from feeling like they’re starting to close in, why not beautify them?
