Timeless & Elegant Wallpaper

Snakeshead by William Morris
The wallpaper I installed on these accent walls this week was designed in 1876 by William Morris. It makes the living area of this DC condo sparkle. Busy patterns can make spaces feel more intimate, or conversely expand the space, depending on color. The genius of Morris is still felt around the world. Morris was a disrupt-or in his day among the artistic world and tastemakers. At a time when the mainstream believed “wallpaper should be background pure and simple” (Victorian architect Richard Norman Shaw), Morris took the opposite approach to wallpaper designing glaring and palatial papers even for small spaces.
