live: Wallpaper is Having a Moment

Wallpaper is Having a Moment (420x376)There was a certain time around the new millennium that having wallpaper -adorned surfaces were outdated and taboo. In recent years, there has been a resurgence in the use of home decor and I, for one could not be happier. While simply painting a wall gave a clean, sleek backdrop to a room, I think wallpaper is an instant way to add personality to any living space.

Happy redecorating!

One could only dream of having that many books!  More of Bowness’ prints can be found and purchased on her official website. If you are looking for an , her prints might do the trick.
