From the Publisher:

Wallpaper Projects: More than 50 Craft and Design Ideas for Your Home, from Accents to Art By Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith.

Wallpaper Projects — Like a roll of wallpaper, this home decor book is both lovely to look at and entirely practical to use. It showcases contemporary and vintage patterns, plus instructions for over 50 wallpaper projects ranging from quick scrap crafts (book covers) to more involved design upgrades (headboards) to big impact makeovers (walls, window shades). Design experts Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith share photographs of stylish interiors, foolproof instructions, shopping resources, and ideas for designing your own wallpaper. The reverse of the book’s jacket features a pattern designed by artist Lena Corwin—enough paper to complete one of the book’s quick scrap crafts right away.
