anaglypa paintedYou will never talk me out of the transformative power of wallpaper. Above: G.G installed anaglypta above the wainscoting in his 1908 southern cottage bungalow, and then he painted the raised part of the paper. (Hmmm, I wonder if flocked wallpaper’s inspiration was anaglypta painted this way…) Anyway, goes under my heading, “Some therapy.” Looks fantastic in the photo, G.G., I bet it’s even 10 times better in person, with the circa-1920s 3D happening. See G.G.’s blue Arts & Crafts bathroom here.

    Beautiful, again G.G.
    These “papers” and there are several different names due to fiber content, were very popular during the Edwardian era. They are meant to mimic tooled leather.

    Hi Jamie, I don’t know the answer to this one. I would guess there are books on it. Jocasta Innes, from the 1990s, comes to mind.
