If Walls Could Talk: Paper, Paint or Stencil in the Arts & Crafts Interior

October 24, 2020

Far from being silent witnesses to the life of a home’s occupants, walls played a crucial – and often overlooked – role in the Arts & Crafts-era interior. Whether painted, stenciled, fabric-covered or wall papered, a room’s surfaces were no less an expression of personal taste or artistic ideals than the many Arts & Crafts objects that they played backdrop to.Indeed, one could argue that an object removed from its decorative context is like a taxidermy fish – a pretty trophy, but a shallow reflection of the exquisite environment in which it lived and breathed.

In this talk, we will look beyond the Rookwood vase sitting on the mantel and Handel lamp perched upon the Stickley library table to discover the scene-stealing beauty right behind them – the wall (and ceiling!) treatments of early-20th-century homes.

About the Speaker: Bo Sullivan
For 20 years, architectural historian Bo Sullivan was the senior designer and “old-house guru” at Rejuvenation in Portland, Oregon, America’s leading manufacturer of period-authentic reproduction lighting, and a former national mecca for salvage and restoration enthusiasts. In 2009, Bo established Arcalus Period Design as a unique consulting resource for dedicated old-house owners, preservationists, and design professionals.Bo launched Bolling & Company in 2013 to share his passionate enthusiasm for the beauty and history of American antique wallpapers from 1880 to 1940.
