Wallpaper extraordinaire!. Where to start--I can't emphasize enough the expertise, humor, sense of taste and just plain genius; these words describe Robin Abber of the 4 Walls.

I've been fortunate enough to have met and worked with Robin and her family over 20 years ago; starting with her mom Sheila, who was able to help me with the paper selections of 4 different homes, all seamless and classy experiences. Enter Robin: She too has never steered me wrong. From soup to nuts, her tasteful choices will turn an otherwise stressful experience into a joy! Robin has a myriad of resources at her fingertips and is very generous to share them with you. Not only is she a designer of the highest caliber, her taste is impeccable. She will get the job done, no matter how large or small. No need to shop around--she has the best prices and selections, and this is truly one-stop shopping at it's best.

My latest experience: I came to Robin with a prehistoric floor plan of an out of state home which will soon be transformed to a bed and breakfast; with the addition of some pictures and some lively conversation, she was able to not only determine how much wallpaper to use per room, but choose paint colors for the entire home! Wow!

For an amazing decorating experience, there is no other place, hands down!

Robin will save you time and money and find exactly what you are looking for! I walked into her showroom with a vague description of what I had in mind. I was amazed at how quickly she understood -- she pulled out 6 different wallpaper books and everything she showed me was exactly on target. Then when I selected the one I wanted she negotiated with the manufacturer to get me a great price, plus she coordinated the quote (which was also great) from her preferred installer. Shereally knows her stuff, is a pleasure to deal with and will go to bat for you!

Best Wallpaper/Design Experience - this is the place to go!. I visited The Four Walls looking for wallpaper for a few different spaces in my house. I had an idea but didn't really know what I was doing. I am so glad I met Robin because she helped me put the whole thing together beautifully. Some of the spaces are large and scary to do but Robin was clear in her vision and helped me pick the absolute perfect papers. She really is a genius and after this experience, I wonder how people are able to buy paper and try to tie in everything together without expert advice. The store itself is lovely and organized and I didn't feel overwhelmed. The selection of papers in the store is fantastic, but honestly, the personal touch that Robin has placed on this experience for me has been invaluable. Robin went above and beyond and helped me coordinate some pieces of furniture and accessories as well. She knows what she is doing and really gives great advice. I have recommended her to friends and wow, what a different experience selecting and buying wallpaper would have been if I had gone someplace else.

Robin Abber will make your house ROCK!!. For years I wasted money thinking I could make my own design decisions. I was forever changing paint colors and ripping down and replacing wallpapers. I finally learned my lesson after I bought wallpaper online, realized it wasn't right then had to pay a 30% restocking fee. I visited The Four Walls by my sister's recommendation and met Robin Abber. I was impressed by her enthusiasm immediately. She seemed to know exactly what I was looking for. I hired her to come over and help me with lighting, wallpaper, paint color and wall-to-wall carpeting. All of these projects have been completed and my home looks amazing! The wallpaper is absolutely stunning. I never could have made my home this beautiful myself. In the end, I ended up saving money because nothing will need to be replaced. I trust Robin implicitly and am excited for her to help me choose blinds, an area rug and bathroom tiles.

Best wallcovering source in the Boston area. Our 100 year old colonial in Newton needed an interior facelift. We wanted to replace wallpaper in the front halls and entry that were there when we bought 34 years ago and recreate the same feel. Only one place had what we wanted: The Four Walls of Newton. And without the owner, Robin's, personal and expert advice we would never have found it. (And discover that her mother had sold the original paper to the former owner!)

We had a wonderful experience choosing and buying wallcoverings for two areas and are very happy with our choices and glad to have Robin as a new friend.

I highly recommend the Four Walls ! Robin Abner is a gifted decorator with an incredible eye and great style. She understood immediately what my husband and I wanted and blended unique wall coverings with beautiful fabrics and rugs. Robin also was able to incorporate my eclectic style to give us a timeless and warm home.

I have met and worked with many design and craftsman in the Boston area, and I have yet to meet anyone who is as talented as Robin.

I had had a horrible experience with another wallpaper retailer right before I went to The Four Walls, and was really wary. Robin was fantastic; after being told by the first person that it always takes months to get papers, I got all six of my papers through Robin within two weeks. The pricing was excellent and she carried everything I had seen elsewhere locally and then some. I chose to pick it up myself, and it was fully organized to make it easy for the hanger to put the right paper in the right place. She was a true pleasure to work with, and far more professional than most people I have encountered in the home design industry.

Robin is great at this! She graciously came by my house, on her own time, to look at the space we wanted to paper. It took her exactly one second to come up with the perfect wall covering. We drove back to her shop, she took a book off the shelf, and opened it to the page which held the secret to pulling my room together. Prior to this, I had dragged countless books home to try to find what I was looking for.

She recommended someone to hang it; he was great; an absolute professional -- and in his words, when he called me a day earlier than expected to tell me the job was done, "the room looks stunning". And it does!

If you want to zero in on the perfect fit, go to The Four Walls-- . She knows her stuff. And if you like quick and decisive, as I do, Robin's the one for you.

This store is superb! The advice is perfect! Right on target! Whatever your style, Robin "gets it" and can recommend fabulous choices. I recommend her store without any hesitation. Don't waste your time anywhere else. Robin is the goddess of wallpaper.

Robin Abber is the best!!! I love the 4 walls. Not only does she have a beautiful selection of paper, she know what she is talking about. Robin gets an idea of your decor, style, etc, and then picks the exact paper that's appropriate for the room/style of your house. She know what colors work together so things blend seamlessly. My husband was especially happy to hear that this was the first purchase I never had buyers remorse with. Not only did Robin do the paper in my house, I also had her do pillows, re-upholstery, and furniture consulting. Just know she will not steer you in the wrong direction!! Love her and her store!!!

I began working with Robin at The Four Walls Newton in 2010. I have since extensively wall papered my home. It looks absolutely beautiful. Robin is extremely knowledgeable and worked closely with me throughout the process. Her input was invaluable. The project was large in scale but Robin guided me through it and did not let me make any mistakes. She also helped me with some drapery and design services. She is really unique in this field: the scope of her knowledge and advice , her willingness to ensure that each project is done right, the personalized service she provides and the interest she takes in each client and their project. I highly recommend "The Four Walls". I cannot imagine going anywhere else for wallpaper.

I was remodeling a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Robin put together a total presentation after determining my tastes and budget. She came to my house and made recommendations on wallpaper, trim paint, fabrics, rugs and furniture. She selected a wonderful combination of papers and even recommended a wall paper hanger. The results exceeded my expectations.

It was refreshing to work with a seasoned professional who is truly interested in satisfying a customer within a reasonable budget and completing the entire job within the desired time frame. She also came by to inspect the job after the workman were done. This type of personal touch is rare in today's impersonal world. I will use Robin and the Four Walls on any future projects and I would highly recommend you to do the same.

Robin Abner, owner of the Four Walls, has helped me decorate and pick wall coverings for over 20 years. Her amazing eye and impeccable taste have helped me decorate 3 homes - a large Victorian, a 1920's Colonial, and a rustic ski house. Robin was able to give each home a modern twist, without detracting from the unique character of each. If you want timeless style, great service and quick turnaround - I would highly recommend the Four Walls.

Michelle Avery

Robin is the best. She listens to what YOU want, and gives you plenty of options to achieve the desired look. She also guides you when you're not quite sure. Perhaps most importantly, Robin is not going to let you make a mistake. She steered me away from a wall covering I liked, because she knew the small imperfections in my old home's walls were likely to show through that type of paper. Also, one of the great things about working with a pro like Robin, is that she knows plenty of talented painters and paper hangers. In this day and age it's nice to be able to write a glowing review about a business. I can honestly say that Robin, and The Four Walls completely deserve it.

Helped with decisions about wallpaper for a powder room. Was knowledgeable and helpful. Came to my house to see the room, and recieved the wallpaper quickly and let me know.

The owner, Robin Abber, came to my home in Gloucester. The home was in desperate need of decorating and remodeling. In short order, Robin was able to choose paint colors, furniture, window treatments, wallpaper for several rooms, and rugs. She was able to transform my home from boring to true seaside comfort and elegance, within budget. Without her experience and intuitive thinking, I would surely have left the home as it was. The difference is astounding. I can't thank her enough for her personal touch and sincerity. The Four Walls is THE place to go for all decorating needs and ideas.

Robin has helped me wallpaper my homes over the past 15 years and has always found the perfect paper to suit each room to a tee. It was therefore an easy choice to ask Robin to help me find the right paper when I opened my new shop in Chestnut Hill, Portobello Road. Robin's eye and decisiveness reinforced my choices, and I know that I can completely trust her with every decision I make. Furthermore, her expertise dealing with contractors and builders, as well as in commercial spaces, was completely reassuring-- she knew exactly what we needed in terms of paper strength and durability, she knew which paper would work best in what areas, and she steered me away from paper that she felt would not hold up in a commercial space. The paper we selected was coming from the Netherlands, and we needed it within a week (the usual lead time is 4-6 weeks)!! Robin worked tirelessly, and managed to work miracles to get it to us within days, and on time. The result was absolutely gorgeous, and our customers comment all the time on how impactful and perfect the paper is. It has added so much to the overall look and feel of the store, and it is due to Robin's impeccable taste and incredible ability to work under pressure and get things done. I would highly recommend Robin for any project, big or small. She pays attention to every detail, including checking every roll when it arrives, staying on top of deliveries, offering suggestions of paper hangers, and making sure that the customer maximizes every dollar spent. Not only have I been pleased as a business owner, but also as a homeowner, and I have many friends who have had the same experience with Robin. Choosing paper is overwhelming, and Robin can direct you immediately to what you need. No doubt you are in the best hands with Robin. I wouldn't go to anyone else!

My experience working with Robin Abber and The Four Walls has been wonderful from start to finish. This little shop on Route 9 may look unassuming from the outside, but once you step in the door you will feel the magic. She can shed light on any decorating disaster. She turned spaces in my home that looked good into rooms that look stunning adding her signiture touch of class, sophistication and beauty. Her warm, vibrant and welcoming personality is the perfect compliment to her extensive knowledge of wall paper and superior sense of design. She is commited to making her clients visions come to life and goes that extra mile to making it happen with ease. With Robin’s touch everything in a room comes together. I love what she selected and wake up every morning to beautifully elegant, glowing bedroom walls. I recommend Robin Abber to anyone looking for fabulous wallpaper and drapery services. Thank you Robin for a job well done.

INCREDIBLE TALENT! When I asked my friends where to go to update my new home they answered in unison! GO SEE ROBIN!! They did not steer me wrong...Robin is a gifted designer and brought all the rooms in my house together with a beautiful flow. Now I call her with every decision...and she is so patient! At the end of our project, my husband and I were thrilled that she was able to keep out costs so low and time frames reasonable.
