What can you do if you are stuck at home because of a hurricane alert? It doesn’t happen in Rome, if I’m to be honest, but I know that a number of my followers live in areas where this is a real threat.
Most people baton down the hatches and ride out the storm; Rachel and Nick Cope decided to use that strained confinement to experiment with the antique Japanese and Turkish techniques of making and coloring used paper.
The result is Calico, an amazing marble effect wallpaper (named after the spotted cat’s coat) that fits perfectly into this new marble mania in the world of interiors. I particularly like the golden and white version, it lights up the room with its sparkle and looks luxurious. And the good news is that it costs 32 dollars a square foot.
