creating wall“paper”

We’re planning our next trip to Milan and remembered how much we loved Richard Ginori’s collaboration with Paola Navone, designer of The Taste Lounge, shown lower right.

While they used hundreds of various patterned china plates to achieve the mosaic, Andy Warhol’s cow appetizer plates can do the trick.

Start with a clean wall and map out the space with a level, a ruler and pencil.

Check your local hardware store for 3M’s Command Strips to mount the plates without nails or hooks—use the Velcro version if you’d like the option of changing the color pattern.

I had the divine experience of visiting CB2 in NYC about a year ago. It would be simply tremendous if you can put a store in the Boston area. There is a serious modern furniture drought up here and we are thirsty for your beautiful wares!! With tons of professionals and students your store will be an absolute smashing success!

Please come soon, otherwise I will have to come to you with the UHaul :-)
