Not all art was meant to be in the center of a home. Bathrooms need art, too. I think this is the greatest example I have ever seen.
A client came in with this swatch of vintage wallpaper (late 60s maybe?). This is the paper that once hung in the home of her husband's grandma. I am told the remnant roll was carefully divided among the siblings when grandma moved. So this swatch is perfectly intact, never been stuck, and I think all of the pattern is represented.
Here are some details from the pattern for your perusal.
I have never seen a pattern like this in my life.
I have seen and framed some other fabulous wallpapers in my day, though, and I love the idea of framing a swatch as art--that way an unusual pattern can be used to great effect without committing a whole wall or room to it.
We found the perfect frame for it: a 3" wide scroll-y floral scoop in WHITE LACQUER.
