our house is from the 1920s, but it was gutted and redone before we moved in so we never got to peel off paint or search in attics to find things from decades and decades ago. but my parents’ new home has turned up a few cool finds. they pulled off some floor-to-ceiling mirrors and look what was behind them. it’s up for debate as to whether or not it’s a stencil or wallpaper but i love it. and it looks similar to so much of the wallpaper i’m seeing pop up on design sites these days. i’m wracking my brain trying to remember where i saw a similar pattern used in an entryway. i don’t think my parents shared in my excitement in quite the same way, but if it wasn’t damaged i think i could’ve won them over. at least it was a fun find.
(p.s. happy birthday to omar. there is a celebratory michael’s genuine food and drink lunch date in his honor on friday. pictures and food-related gushing are forthcoming.)
