We can hardly believe it ourselves, but yes, the wallpaper is done! The wallpaper reproduction project began in 2002, and now, 12 years later, we are proud to show off the results. And I might add that what you are going to see is BEAUTIFUL, especially to those with an early 19th century eye (wink, wink)! These papers were all reproduced from original wallpapers that were pulled off of the walls during the 1960s restoration or that are on band boxes in the collection. Some of the borders are from the Adelphi line of papers because there weren’t enough borders in the collection. We would like to thank all of the folks at LCA Associates, Laura McCoy Designs, Inc., Adelphi Paper Hangings, LLC, and Historical Wallpapering Specialties for all of their endless hours and amazing abilities to bring this project to fruition.
Sneak peek at what’s to come: artifacts are moving into the houses and carpeting is coming very soon!
