Wallpaper Accordion Photo Albums - Soon to be seen in Country Living Magazine

Many months ago I was contacted by Country Living Magazine about making something for their April 2009 issue. So here is a preview! The issue has a lead article about wallpaper and its many uses. I was asked to come up with a large accordion photo album (10 X 12) to accommodate wallpaper samples. Here are the recently returned to me albums:

The Yellow album on the left is covered with a Farrow & Ball St. Antoine paper and the pink Hydrangea pattern is a Thibaut paper.

Here is the inside of the yellow album with an assortment of vintage and new wallpapers.

This is the Hydrangea album with more wallapapers. The album leans because they actually cut it up for the photo shoot!

Here are some examples of the wallpapers. This is a vintage pattern (above) - can't you just see Carmen Miranda performing at a club wallpapered in this pattern? This vivid green Pierre Frey "Odalys" pattern (below) is my favorite. The colors are so vibrant and the flowers so large and detailed!

I can't wait for the April issue to come out. It should be to subscribers by mid-March. A big thanks to Brooke Walis who worked with me. It was a pleasure to collaborate on this project.

Since there were some leftover pieces of paper, I am making smaller versions of this album for sale in my etsy shop. Stay tuned for details!

These are so lovely! I might like to order a plain accordion album that is about this big... at least 11"x11". If you're interested in quoting me a price for this project, will you please email me?
