Wallcovering of the Day

Saul Steinberg was a brilliant cartoonist whose illustrations graced the cover of The New Yorker for many, many years. There isn't an easy way to describe the appeal that his sketches have for me, but I've yet to see one that I didn't like.

Schumacher was extra smart and chose some of Steinberg's best work and turned it in to art for our walls. I was first exposed to and used F. Schumacher ten years or so ago, and quickly became a fan of the exceptional taste of their wall coverings and fabrics.

This is the print that I will have in my laundry room one day. It's strange, because I really don't like birds. This is just one of the Steinberg prints that Schumacher has available- It's called Aviary. I used the black and white version of this in a customer's powder room some years ago and it has always stuck with me.

So there you have it, the wallcovering of the day- my future laundry room walls will be covered in charming little birdies.

Love it.


  1. Both are great. The style of the Aviary print reminds me a little of Howard Finster's work (GA folk artist -- one of my favorites). Have a Happy Fourth, Nick!

  2. The first one is neat - and fun to look at. But the second one is so very cool! I love it!! :D

  3. The wall covering of the day are shared on the post here. You will love seeing them good post
