Plus: Wallpaper murals spotted in 10 time capsule houses
Do you remember the ranches with the dining rooms what had the ‘scenes’ of either deer, lapping water from a pond, or Conquistador ships docked at a harbor, or a hand painted scene of a plantation home, etc…? I know this was wallpaper, but I don’t know what the correct term for it is, so I can do a search. Any advice you can share about what to call this as well as whether they make reproduction versions of this scenic mural wallpaper would be appreciated!

These also are abundant on ebay, at very reasonable prices.Heck yeah there is more →

She hopes Pam and me — and our wonderful readers — can help. Retro Design Dilemma time!Heck yeah there is more →
