The Instant Great House, Wallpaper Edition

November 13, 2014

Whether you fancy living in grandeur, crystal-stemware-style, or in cozy quarters evocative of a scullery, photographic wallpaper master Deborah Bowness has you covered. The prolific UK designer, best known for her trompe-l’oeil architectural details and bookcase wallpapers, recently broadened her repertoire to include the key trappings of the upstairs-downstairs life. And the good news: All you need is a wall to achieve it.
