Construction-Wallparper Install

The original design of our apartment was transitional with both art deco and modern design influences. In the case of the wallpaper, we opted to go with Art Deco patterns from Bradbury & Bradbury. The living room pattern is "Volute-Platinum". The bedroom pattern is "Stardust-Midnight". The "Stardust" pattern was stenciled from motifs found in the now demolished "Cloud Club" at the top of New York's spectacular Chrysler Building. The wallpaper was installed by Bond Professional Wallcovering, Bronx, NY.
