Barbara Hulanicki Wallpaper.



If I didn't live in a cookie-cutter apartment with very strict rules against painting or altering the walls in dramatic ways, I would plaster every room with flowery, psychedelic wallpaper perfectly fit for hysterical visions ala Charlotte Perkins Gilman's "The Yellow Wallpaper." The Barbara Hulanicki wallpaper collection at Graham and Brown would be an apt place to start. Hulanicki, who came to fame during the swinging sixties with her popular London boutique, Biba, draws from the dark Art Nouveau vibe that made Biba so distinctive. Her wallpaper designs are the perfect mix of the 1890's and the 1960's -- organic and eccentric, modern and playful.

this wallpaper is actually great for people in apartments who can't paint... this wallpaper comes off in full sheets without any damage to the walls so you can strip it when your lease is up! all you have to do is paint a coat of clear primer on the walls first.
