Presto! Heat-Activated Wallpaper.

Sometimes a little change in decoration can go a long way. It is common knowledge that we respond in both negative and positive ways to the environment that surrounds us. What a better "pick-me-up" than wallpaper that actually transforms from a field of green leaves to clusters of pink blooming flowers.

Designer Shi Yuan's heat-activated wallpaper enables such a change when the wallpaper encounters a difference in temperature of 35 degrees plus or minus. A radiator strategically placed on the papered wall enables the addition or removal of heat. Above and below are photographs of the wallpaper making the transformation. Touch this paper and watch flowers appear before your eyes!
