To The Walls

Wallpaper is an intriguing design concept. Once popular in the seventies, it quickly became dated and the first thing you rip out of a newly purchased home. I am still haunted by the orange and blue bird motif that attacked the kitchen in my parents house. But now, wallpaper is back in a big way. Ranging from subtle to bold, prints all over are sprawling across walls and making a name for themselves…yet again.
