{with a flourish}

I'm quite taken with the idea of using wallpaper to create a charming statement panel, as seen here, using Pomp 3500 wallpaper by Brian Yates.

The wallpaper is stunning! What a lovely idea to use it as a panel, rather than covering the whole wall.

I'd like to see it as a stair runner... can't quiet get the hang of the statement wall... it seems like a tattoo to me, difficult to pull off. Ah well, that's me, a bit of an old fuddy-duddy. Thanks for making me think.

Oh, a stair runner--Elegant, what an inspired idea. And perhaps my images do not do the actual statement wall justice--had they been a little less grainy, you may be swayed by the idea . . . Either way, I love the creative thinking involved.

I have done this before, actually, and it turned out beautifully. It was in 1992 so it was quite some time ago, but I actually cut out parts of a wallpaper border and used it to replicate the look of something handpainted. It took forever, that is probably why I haven't done it again. But, with the right paper and right room, it can look fabulous!

Happy day,

Melissa, I'm impressed! And in 1992, no less. Sounds like it turned out beautifully--you wouldn't happen to have any photos, would you?

Jelenie--thanks so much :)
