TURN THAT WALLPAPER DOWN



Two shots from a wonderfully tacky weekend away on the water. The break did me the world of good, but the wallpaper gave me a headache.

Wow! The wallpaper makes my eyes cross. Can you imagine? Someone designed that paper - on purpose! And got it manufactured and SOLD it! Someone chose it and had it plastered on their walls. Will wonders never cease?

In the tacky house where I grew up (it was the 50's, what can I say?) the wallpaper in the dining room was pink with BIG copper kettles all over it. Yikes!!

Glad you had a wonderful weekend on the water. Usually you work way too hard. Bravo!!

I sort of like the first one for a two day getaway but not for home. I too grew up in a house with wild wallpaper that was popular from the mid-1950s to late 1970s. My mother was particular fond of wacky, abstract patterns. I hated them as a kid, and I always suspected they were some sort of Freudian/Rorschach test she was conducting on us. I'm still pretty sure she was, and I certainly saw some disturbing things in the patterns.

Such a nice contrast in these two. One so busy and the other allows my eyes to relax and I move into the zen zone. Thanks you!

I'll take a nice bowl of cereal and some toast please by using those dishes.

And although the wallpaper looks pretty cool, it is a bit dizzying.

We were never wallpaper people in my family, thank God. I still think the best thing on a wall is white paint.

These are very "beach cottage"!

i remember we had some very 70's hessian on the wall (in the 70's, in fact)
But that wallpaper is worse.

i like the sound of Reya's though....

dizzy-ing, dazzl-ing paper!
even so, a great photo!
there is something pleasing about all that busyness ... maybe the colors?

a good weekend away rights all wrongs!

On his death bed in the Parisian Hôtel d'Alsace, Oscar Wilde moaned: "One of us has to go - that dreadful wallpaper or I."

Unfortunately the wallpaper won. See what power these patterns can have over sane humans... Lovecraftian horrors are lurking behind their seemingly harmless tendrils and florets!

I giggled at what samantha. said. And such a rare instance, too!

I think it was Oscar Wilde who, on his deathbed in Paris (the room had hideous wallpaper, and is now an expensive hotel), said "either this wallpaper goes or I do". The wallpaper won.

yes david z-s... exactly what I said before ;-)

BTW the former Hôtel d'Alsace is now the luxurious L'Hôtel. I spent some nights in Oscar's room but was haunted by the ghosts of his golden-haired companions, not by the Grandmaster himself ^^
