decroded wallpaper sampler

Wallpaper was my mother’s thing. I can remember, as a kid, helping her hang it (probably mostly getting in the way), but I’ve never actually put it up myself and until recently, never really gave it a thought. Although, currently, I can’t stop thinking about some fabulous paper on a wall or two in my entry way…
Our recent journey to the decaying remains of Mountain Spaa Resort left me fascinated by the prints of bygone decades and seriously wishing the walls could talk. Here are some of the forgotten wallpaper prints fading slowly as year after year tick by- as the elements and the animals take over.

I brought a few props along- here’s a wool sequined shamrock from my private collection. One of exactly three St. Patrick’s Day decorations I possess.

Photo shoot- underway here.
There are a few wallpapers I missed. Now I’ll have to go back- but not by myself- because I must admit, it’s slightly creepy.

See all the Mountain Spaa pictures here.
