☞ BESPOKE: Trompe L'oeil Wallpaper
William Morris patterns that were sure to have been in many of the Harlem brownstones a century ago but those who are not so literal might want a more modern update today.
Faux finishes and Trompe L'oeil pattern have always been standard for many early century homes and we recently found this series of British Graham & Green wallpaper that provides an update to the classic medium. These patterns can add character to a small study, guest room, or child's space without actually investing in book shelves or woodwork. The oak panel paper is interesting because one can actually stain a chair rail moulding to match the print and then paper everything below for a dado rail affect. A printed library pattern as shown at top would do well as on an accent wall combined with existing panel moulding. Most of these custom paper are expensive so use sparingly: LINK
