Inspiration - Adelphi
This is the store front of Adelphi Paper Hangings in Sharon Springs, New York. And these images are from a slide show on Martha's website. I think its fascinating and so inspiring. They faithfully reproduce wallpaper dating back to the 18th century using block printing and hand painting methods - check this out . . . . .

This is their rather unassuming 19th century storefront - above

Well I thought you ladies would like these pictures! I am just amazed by this place - I wonder if anyone can go and visit - probably not! Imagine being martha in a place like this - I'm sure she just wanted to roll up her sleeves and start stenciling something on the walls!
