Scenic wallpapers, popular for centuries, continue to grace the walls of dining rooms, hallways, master bedrooms and other rooms. Chinoiserie-inspired patterns are very popular today.
I regularly install Chinese murals, often in traditional dining rooms, but also in offices and entry ways. Anywhere, from a small accent in an alcove to a sweeping panorama at the focal point of a house. There’s nothing like a hand-painted Chinese mural.
Some of my favorite wallpapers to install are produced by Adelphi Paper Hangings, an artisanal producer of historically accurate block printed wallpapers. I’m in Fauquier County this week installing wallpaper and borders in a restored Carriage House. If you want to learn more about the history of these type of papers, read our blog post, Wallpaper and Weddings in Georgetown (DC).
Recently was back to work at a home in Northern Virginia. Their restoration is almost complete. One of the rooms I papered was the master dressing room. Papered behind shelves and walls. Tin ceiling, stone work and wallpaper selection complement each other, making all three more noticeable.
