|Osborne & Little Coronata Star|
Yesterday I found my stash of wallpaper - it includes vintage, discontinued, and very high end papers. The catch? It is 2 rolls of this, 4 rolls of that. Not enough to do rooms. So I am going to get creative and think of unexpected spots for some of this beautiful wallpaper in my new home.
I have in my arsenal 4 rolls of Osborne & Little Coronata Star wallpaper that I picked up for $20 at a favorite thrift store in Alexandria. (Look Again at 900 King Street). If any of you are in the NOVA area, it is in Old Town and benefits The Society for the Prevention of Blindness. (Secret - interior designers in Alexandria often donate there).
I am thinking of using it in the the vestibule on the ceiling. Why not?
And I have a gorgeous double roll of very vintage Louis W. Bowen Chinese Lattice (now manufactured by Quadrille/China Seas under the name Trellis Background and by Bob Collins & Sons as Chinese Lattice. It might end up in the pantry.

My wallpaper hanger is coming over on Wednesday morning for estimates on the guest bath and laundry room projects.
Have you used wallpaper in any unexpected places?
The backs of shelves?
I also have a stunning pair of Paul Montgomery Chinoiserie panels I have never used. And I have perfect spot for them.

I would love to hear about your wallpaper projects (not on walls) for inspiration.
