Wallpaper is in Vogue !

Yes, there is a comeback of wallpaper today in contemporary decoration.

However, there is a world of difference between vintage papers wood-block printed by hand in limited edition and new wallpapers digitally mass produced.

Antique papers, from the XVIIIc to the Art Deco period, have a finesse in the lines, a richness in the colors and density of the paper that you do not find in those made today that appear flat and somewhat cold.

Introducing a vintage wallpaper in a contemporary home sets the tone and introduces originality and “soul” to the interior.

Yes, this unique mural art form is to be rediscovered…
