The recent cover of Veranda Magazine has seemed to cause a bit of a stir regarding the FRIEZE that appears on the wall. This room is by one of my favorite interior designers, John Saladino, who is one of the foremost in classic interior design and a true gentleman.
To have a discussion regarding wallpaper would most likely have everyone clicking off, but alas, I am not going to go into a lot of detail. Except to give you a little background. Wall papers and the top part of the wall paper that often times was different then the rest of the paper which
is called a FRIEZE , were very popular in France in the 1800′s and then it became quite in vogue in the States
Architectural friezes were really popular, the idea of balustrades and such, which was what is on the cover add an incredible dimension. Friezes are great, when used that way and also, if you want a more modern look and love the idea of a wallpaper, but it may be too much for you, then a frieze is a great way to add dimension onto a wall. So you go from one dimensional to two. I love friezes and I am going to start using them as they have come a long way. The ones I am posting today are all available so use your imagination and have fun!
Enjoy! and don’t be afraid to FRIEZE!
