What to Read While in the Powder Room

by Lauren Setum, Allied Member ASID
LiLu recently installed this lovely Weitzner wallcovering in a client's powder room. The story behind the design is quite intriguing...

"This one-of-a-kind print was inspired by an Italian letter written in 1904 and discovered between the pages of a flea market book. Sentences flowing on top of each other in two directions reveal the paper recycling method of the period and transform the written word into a trellis of graceful pen strokes."

Take a look at the installation shot below. Using pieces like this in your home is a great way to bring past and present together. There really is a greater sense of depth and meaning to selections that have a story behind them.
