MY FAVORITE TOILE WALLPAPER IS BACK

The wait is over...


Years ago, Todd Romano used this fabulous red and white toile scenic wallpaper in a project. The paper was done by Waterhouse Wallhangings out of Massachusetts and was discontinued. Why? It has lived with it on my memo board for years, and I gaze longingly at the paper, adoring it, wishing it could be had.
Well, good news. Now it can.

Waterhouse Wallcoverings, founded by Dorothy Waterhouse, specialized in reproducing historic wallpaper designs. The papers, manufactured by using traditional hand screening techniques, are now available once again through The Christopher Norman Collection, which is being led in great new directions by industry veteran and friend, Nancy Stout. Shown here in the reverse, this toile is slightly different, but just as full of pop.
