Wallpaper on the East Montrose Home Tour

Yesterday was my neighborhood’s Home Tour – our most successful ever, with an estimated 500 people attending.

One of the homes started as a 1920’s bungalow, and was taken down to the studs and redone, with a second story added. While removing the old walls down to the shiplapped wood, they uncovered the original wallpaper. As I have written about previously, this paper is gorgeous, IMO, with beautiful inks and inimitable patterns.

The homeowners saved a scrap of the paper from one of the rooms, had it cut into the shape of a cross, and then mounted it on a matt and framed it; it was hanging in the office/den. I think this is brilliant way to showcase an important part of the original home, without having it dominate or clash with the decor of the new home (which was relatively modern).
